Dolphins to cut DT Suh, LB Timmons

Dolphins to cut DT Suh, LB Timmons

However, he's still a highly-disruptive, run-stuffing interior lineman and most recently earned All-Pro accolades in 2016.

Ndamukong Suh #93 of the Miami Dolphins reacts in the closing seconds of the game against the Dallas Cowboys at Sun Life Stadium on November 22, 2015 in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Running back Jay Ajayi was traded last season, and receiver Jarvis Landry was traded last week.

Suh will reportedly be released two days before the NFL's league year begins on Wednesday.

The Suh decision comes roughly three years after they signed the defensive tackle to an enormous six-year, $114 million contract.

According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Suh is to be released from the team, with a formal release that may happen on Wednesday. He remains an elite player in the trenches and proved that last season with 48 tackles, 4.5 sacks and forced two fumbles.

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.

A Miami Herald report adds that the Dolphins have a long-term extension offer on the table that would lower James' cap number in 2018, but would pay him below what he could likely make as a free agent. He did, however, miss one game last season as a result of him going AWOL from the team's hotel in Los Angeles the morning of a game and was ultimately tracked down at the airport getting ready to board a flight to Pennsylvania to go see family.

One advantage of signing a player like Suh who is being cut is that he would not factor into the compensatory pick formula. And while that had the potential to be the biggest move for the Dolphins, that could all change if the team ends up parting ways with Ndamukong Suh.
