Ndamukong Suh Rumors: Dolphins DT Could Be Released as Soon as Monday

Ndamukong Suh

Monday is not a good day for a few players drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2007.

The purge of big-time Dolphins talent continues as the news of Suh's impending departure comes just days after the team traded No. 1 receiver Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns.

The person said the Dolphins are also expected to release veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons.

The Dolphins could've brought Suh back for another year, but his current contract carries a $16.985 million base salary and $26.1 million cap hit number for 2018.

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

The 31-year-old, five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle played every game in his tenure with the Dolphins, racking up 15.5 sacks and 108 tackles as the anchor of Miami's defense. "Be some exciting news going on". In 2009, Suh was named AP Player of the Year, Big 12 defensive player of the year, won the Bronco Nagurski award, Chuck Bednarik award, John Outland Trophy, Vince Lombardi award and was named first team All-American. The Dolphins, specifically Adam Gase is trying to change the culture in Miami and that starts with attitude. The Dolphins save that amount against the cap by cutting him.

During the season, Timmons went AWOL and was suspended for one game because of it.

The Dolphins now appear worse than the 6-10 mess of 2017, not closer to the 10-6 wild-card berth two years ago that felt like a mirage.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Dolphins are parting ways with Suh for locker room reasons more than anything else.

Despite being one of the more dominant defensive tackles the past decade, Suh became one of the least-liked players in the National Football League during his career.
