Expected to be released, will Seahawks pursue Ndamukong Suh?

In midseason a year ago, the Dolphins traded running back Jay Ajayi to the Eagles. Three days later, the Dolphins are set to move on from their best defensive player and maybe the best player on their entire team.

Darlington reported the release is part of the team's attempted culture change, a plan that has purged three of Miami's most talented players in the past year, after running back Jay Ajayi was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles mid-year and wide receiver Jarvis Landry was sent to the Cleveland Browns last week. The report has since been confirmed by a league source.

Suh, 31, never hit the heightened expectations that came with the six-year, $114.4 million contract he signed in 2015.

Suh's release also will take a large contract off Miami's books.?Suh carried a salary-cap number of $26.1 million for the 2018 season, including a base salary of $16.985 million.

The move to release Suh is not about performance, but merely a business decision. It's likely the Dolphins will designate him a post-June 1 cut, which will ultimately free up $17 million in cap space after that date. Meanwhile, the Dolphins don't seem to want any sort of talent on their football team next season. In the video he says, "Stay tuned, be some exciting things going on".

Suh started all 44 games he has played with the Dolphins, coming up with 14.5 sacks along with 107 tackles, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery.
