Tampa Bay Buccaneers extend OT Donovan Smith, bringing back DT Ndamukong Suh, sources say

The Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers continued their busy offseason Wednesday, agreeing to a two-year, $31.8 million contract extension with offensive tackle Donovan Smith while finalizing a one-year, $10 million deal to bring back defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Smith's extension runs through 2023 and includes $30 million guaranteed over the next two seasons, sources told ESPN.

The move helped the Bucs create more room under the salary cap for this season while still maintaining continuity on the offensive line to protect quarterback Tom Brady.
