Miami Dolphins will cut Ndamukong Suh

Miami Dolphins will cut Ndamukong Suh

Three days later, the Dolphins are set to move on from their best defensive player and maybe the best player on their entire team.

According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, the plan is for the Dolphins to release Suh today. The report has since been confirmed by a league source.

He wasn't wrong. Suh would later restructure the contract but it's not like that helped the Dolphins in the future: they will only save $3.9 million if he's cut in standard fashion. However, the Dolphins would not be able to use that money for three months.

The Miami Dolphins are tearing it down and starting over this offseason under the guise of "changing the culture" in their locker room after a disappointing 6-10 season in 2017.

Seattle will still have promising young defensive tackles Jarran Reed and Naz Jones on the roster heading into 2018, but if unable to strike a long-term deal with Sheldon Richardson, Suh could be an appealing alternative. He followed that up by registering 41 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 2016 as he was elected to his fifth ever Pro Bowl appearance. Quinn hasn't been a great player in two years, not unlike the failed acquisition of Mario Williams a few years back, and it's impossible to argue the Dolphins are closer to competing without Landry and Suh.

Suh posted a video on social media Sunday in which he said, "There will be some exciting things going on".
