Dolphins To Release Ndamukong Suh As Part Of 'Culture Change'

Another big name on the Miami Dolphins roster will likely be getting his walking papers.

A person familiar with the situation says the Miami Dolphins are discussing releasing five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh when the NFL's new year begins Wednesday.

Last week, the team released another star player - Jarvis Landry.

Suh may have hinted the upcoming move in a Twitter video on Monday in which he said, "There will be some exciting things going on".

Suh's $26.1 million cap hit for the 2018 season would have been the third largest in the National Football League and one of only two among the top 14 that went to a non-quarterback.

ESPN reports releasing Suh now will save the Dolphins $3.9 million off the salary cap.

Jaish al-Islam and Faylaq al-Rahman, two Islamist rebel groups, control most of the opposition-held areas of eastern Ghouta . Ghouta, under government siege since 2013, is the last remaining opposition-controlled zone on the outskirts of the capital.

Suh, 31, never hit the heightened expectations that came with the six-year, $114.4 million contract he signed in 2015.

[Eagles coach Alex] Lee recalls Ndamukong Suh being so impressed with the team that he approached defensive line coach Chris Wilson with an offer: "Suh told our defensive line coach, 'The way y'all practice is unbelievable". Should the Dolphins designate him a post-June 1 cut, they'll save $17 million in 2018 and $19 million in 2019.

Timmons' release leaves $7.25 million in dead money on the team's salary cap. He has made it to four Pro Bowls and is probably the most talented player on the Dolphins.

Suh recently spoke with Business Insider about how much athletes really get when they sign those enormous contracts. Over three seasons with the Dolphins, he recorded 108 tackles and 15.5 sacks.

The Broncos' interior defensive line is pretty good but nose tackle Domata Peko has one year left on his contract and is obviously up there in age.
