Dolphins plan to release Suh

Dolphins plan to release Suh

The Miami Dolphins' purge apparently will continue Monday.

Suh, 31, was scheduled to make $16.9M and count $26.1M against the cap as apart of the six-year, $114M deal he signed with Miami a few seasons back.

Veteran defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh tweeted Monday morning that he's in Seattle and for followers to "stay tuned".

Here's how the move affects the Dolphins' financial standing.

The release of Timmons by the Dolphins is not a bit surprising.

Suh's $26.1 million dollar salary in 2018 accounts for almost 15 percent of the team's salary cap, making him the highest paid player on the Dolphins' roster in 2018.

Who We Like: Davidson's motion offense is rolling right now and the Wildcats' 2-3 zone gave the Rams' fits earlier this season. The Rams are the first No. 1 seed in the Atlantic 10 to reach the conference championship game since Saint Louis in 2013.

His disappearance voided guaranteed money in his contract, and as a result, Miami sustained a cap hit of $2.75 million opposed to $5.5 million by releasing him. "There will be some exciting news going on". Suh had been a three-time All-Pro nose tackle in his five years out of Nebraska with the Detroit Lions.

Suh started all 44 games he has played with the Dolphins, coming up with 14.5 sacks along with 107 tackles, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery.

Earlier this month the Dolphins agreed to trade star wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns for a 2018 fourth round pick and a 2019 seventh round pick.

He was named to four Pro Bowls while receiving an unbelievable three First-Team All-Pro nods during those five initial seasons. While it's too early to decipher what teams might be interested in bringing on the sometimes-troubled Suh, we might have an idea of where he would want to go.

Still, it is a curious move considering Suh is still one of the four best interior defensive linemen in the NFL, grading as "elite" with a Pro Football Focus grade of 91 in 2017.
