Dolphins plan to move on from Ndamukong Suh, Lawrence Timmons

The Miami Dolphins may be about to lose another star player - defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

Suh made about $60 million in his three seasons and was in line for $17 million this year, with a $26.1 million cap hit. The Dolphins have already agreed to trade receiver Jarvis Landry to the Browns and appear to be gutting the roster to improve team culture.

If the Dolphins do cut Suh, this could be another long and frustrating year for the Dolphins.

Suh's career with Miami was a mixed bag after signing a monster six-year, $114 million contract with the team in 2015.

The 305-pound Suh clogs the middle and usually draws double teams, but he's not a playmaker and has had only 15½ sacks in three years with Miami.

It was about how he felt...for me it was always Mike's decision to play or not play. "If he's healthy, we're rolling". Fifth-seeded Missouri (20-11) faces the victor of Wednesday's Georgia-Vanderbilt game at 2:30 p.m.

Releasing Suh now would save the Dolphins just $3.9 million against the cap.

Bears fans know Suh well from his time in the same division.

While the Dolphins could make the move as early as Monday, it likely will happen Wednesday, sources said.

To put those numbers in perspective, over the last three seasons, Joe Flacco had the highest salary cap figure in the National Football League at $24.6 million and no defensive player had a figure higher than $22.1 million.

The Lions need interior defensive line help and Suh is one of the best out there. The question is where will he end up playing in his ninth season in the league. He played in 78 of 80 regular-season games for Detroit while making 238 tackles with 36 sacks, 13 pass breakups, 2 forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and an interception.

"I expect Suh's next deal to be in the 6-7 million dollar world".
