8 teams expected to be interested in Ndamukong Suh — NFL free agency

NFL Rumors: Dolphins To Release Ndamukong Suh As Part Of 'Culture Change'

Dolphins To Release Ndamukong Suh 

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.

According to reports, Suh will be among the players let go by the Dolphins and will be a post-June 1st cut, meaning his salary cap savings will be more for 2019 than 2018. 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. I should add that his formal release - in terms of availability to other teams - is likely to happen on Wednesday.

If Suh is released or traded it will be the biggest move of the Dolphins off-season that dwarfs the trade of Jarvis Landry.

The Dolphins plan to release 3-time All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, according to @JeffDarlington.

Suh might have hinted at the upcoming move when he tweeted a video Monday morning in which he said "There will be some exciting things going on".

The Suh decision comes roughly three years after they signed the defensive tackle to an enormous six-year, $114 million contract. He remains an elite player in the trenches and proved that last season with 48 tackles, 4.5 sacks and forced two fumbles.

Suh has been named First-Team All-Pro four times and appeared in five Pro Bowls during eight seasons with the Lions and Dolphins. The Dolphins made the playoffs as a wild-card team in 2016, but are coming off a disappointing 6-10 season.

With none of the remaining years on Suh's contract guaranteed - standard operating procedure in the National Football League - the decision was probably an easy one, despite still being one of the best players in the NFL.
