Ndamukong Suh Rumors: Dolphins DT Could Be Released as Soon as Monday
Mar 13 2018
Miami is expected to release veteran defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, and the move could come as early as Monday, according to Jeff Darlington of ESPN. National Football League rosters can turnover quickly, but how much time does head coach Adam Gase have to see the culture change through? In the video he says: "Stay tuned, be some exciting things going on". He signed a $114 million, six-year deal with the Dolphins when he joined them in 2015, and his base salary this year would be $17 million.
Releasing Timmons and Suh later this week could save the Dolphins almost $24 million in cap space.
Until the Dolphins actually release Suh, Los Angeles and other interested suitors won't be able to reach out just yet.
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.
Suh has been named First-Team All-Pro four times and appeared in five Pro Bowls during eight seasons with the Lions and Dolphins.
Suh, 31, has never won a playoff game, and with him last year, Miami finished 14th in run defense and 26th in sacks last year.
Unfortunately for the Philadelphia Eagles, who employ Jim Schwartz as their defensive coordinator, they don't have the snaps available, nor the funds, to sign Suh.
Suh should have plenty of interest on the open market, especially because it won't take a QB-esque contract to bring aboard the enigmatic interior disruptor who's still unblockable when he wants to be.
