Dolphins set to release Ndamukong Suh

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

Suh, 31, is expected to be released in the near future after spending three seasons with the Miami Dolphins. He is a five-time Pro Bowler, although four of those were from his time in Detroit.

Both reports cited the Dolphins' desire to shake up their locker toom.

One advantage of signing a player like Suh who is being cut is that he would not factor into the compensatory pick formula.

The big issue was how much Suh counted against the salary cap each season.

Timmons' release leaves $7.25 million in dead money on the team's salary cap. The Dolphins save that amount against the cap by cutting him.

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.

Vance Joseph, the Broncos' head coach, was Suh's defensive coordinator in Miami and if Denver can get Suh on a reasonable multi-year contract, he could be a nice piece for that defensive line. Quinn hasn't been a great player in two years, not unlike the failed acquisition of Mario Williams a few years back, and it's impossible to argue the Dolphins are closer to competing without Landry and Suh. The question is where will he end up playing in his ninth season in the league. Nobody is going to feel sorry for Suh, but that is still a far cry from the $114 million that was announced in 2015. 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. It turns out he will be getting even less and it is no surprise.
