The Las Vegas Raiders and Minnesota Vikings have had conversations with free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, a source told USA Today's Tyler Dragon.

The 35-year-old Suh, who doesn't expect to re-sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, said Monday he'd welcome the possibility of joining Las Vegas.

"I like it, to be honest with you," Suh said about the Raiders, according to Sports Illustrated's Zach Koons. "Chandler Jones and Maxx Crosby, exchanging messages with them the other day, it's an interesting opportunity, for sure. We'll see where it kind of ends up."

Suh spent the last three seasons in Tampa Bay. The Bucs let him hit free agency and instead signed veteran defensive lineman Akiem Hicks, adding to a unit featuring Vita Vea, William Gholston, and second-round rookie Logan Hall.

The Raiders have one of the NFL's top pass-rushing duos in Crosby and Jones, whom they signed this offseason. However, Las Vegas' interior defensive line is still a big concern. In March, the Raiders signed veteran defensive tackle Bilal Nichols, who joined a group with Johnathan Hankins, Vernon Butler, and rookies Neil Farrell Jr. and Matthew Butler.

The Vikings released veteran defensive tackle Michael Pierce in March, leaving Dalvin Tomlinson, Harrison Phillips, and Armon Watts as their top defensive linemen.

Suh racked up 112 tackles and 14.5 sacks in 49 regular-season games with Tampa Bay. The five-time Pro Bowler, who was a key part of the Bucs' defense during the club's Super Bowl run in 2020, amassed six sacks and 27 tackles last year.
