Miami Dolphins to cut Ndamukong Suh

Miami Dolphins to cut Ndamukong Suh

(97.1 The Ticket) Just three years into a six-year contract, Ndamukong Suh's time in Miami is coming to an end.

Cutting Suh will save the Dolphins almost $17 million in cap room but create a monster $22-plus million dead cap hit, according to Spotrac.

The Dolphins will be releasing linebacker Lawrence Timmons per a league source.

Interestingly, Suh tweeted a video this morning from Seattle, generating plenty of buzz about the possibility of the Seahawks pursuing him once he becomes a free agent.

Miami is expected to release veteran defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and the move could come as early as today, according to Jeff Darlington of ESPN. He is a five-time Pro Bowler, although four of those were from his time in Detroit. "There will be some exciting news going on".

The Dolphins traded running back Jay Ajayi in October and last week dealt wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns.

His anticipated departure would be the latest move in an attempt to change the locker room culture under Adam Gase, who heads into his third season as coach.

Timmons, who will turn 32 in May, was due a base salary of $5.45 million in 2018 after signing a two year, $12 million contract, of which $11 million was reportedly fully guaranteed, with the Dolphins last year at this time. He remains an elite player in the trenches and proved that last season with 48 tackles, 4.5 sacks and forced two fumbles.

The Falcons would have interest in Suh because they sorely need a defensive tackle capable of applying pressure from the interior next to nose tackle Grady Jarrett, with Vic Beasley and Takk McKinley rushing off the edges.

Of course, Suh began his career in the Motor City, which is why the Lions on this list is one that's intriguing. He knows the city and some of the personnel after being the No. 2 overall pick to the Lions in 2010 - and Detroit had a dominant defense with Suh on the roster in 2014.
