Dolphins will release Ndamukong Suh

According to a report from ESPN's Jeff Darlington, the Miami Dolphins plan on releasing star Ndamukong Suh "as early as today".

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.

Suh, 31, appears to have known the Dolphins planned to release him, as he posted a video from Seattle early Monday morning in which he said, "Stay tuned".

Ndamukong Suh is expected to be cut this week by the Miami Dolphins, according to several reports, and it is just the latest example of how, unlike other sports, huge contracts in the National Football League are mostly a sham. Vinny Curry is nearly certain to be released as the Eagles' begin a roster shakeup created to bring them in line with a salary cap that is reportedly rising from $167 million to $177.2 million for the 2018 season.

Until the Dolphins actually release Suh, Los Angeles and other interested suitors won't be able to reach out just yet.

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. "There will be some exciting news going on". The Dolphins will likely look to move on from the three-time, all-pro defensive tackle as a defensive tackle has a limited number of ways to impact the game.

On Friday, the Dolphins traded wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns after slapping him with the franchise tag.

Despite his age and relative ineffectiveness over the last few seasons, Suh will immediately become one of the top names on the market once released.

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.
