Dolphins plan to release Ndamukong Suh

Miami is expected to release veteran defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, and the move could come as early as Monday, according to Jeff Darlington of ESPN.

His anticipated departure would be the latest move in an attempt to change the locker room culture under Adam Gase, who heads into his third season as coach. In the video he says: "Stay tuned, be some exciting things going on".

Last week, the Miami Herald reported the Miami Dolphins hadn't ruled out cutting star DT Ndamukong Suh after signing him to a six-year, $114 million contract a few years back.

Six months later, the Dolphins made the inevitable official, cutting the veteran linebacker whose short time with Miami will be remembered only for his freaky behavior. Should the Dolphins designate him a post-June 1 cut, they'll save $17 million in 2018 and $19 million in 2019. However, he's still a highly-disruptive, run-stuffing interior lineman and most recently earned All-Pro accolades in 2016.

In her message to the gathering, Queen Elizabeth praised the value of "exchanging ideas and seeing life from other perspectives". Following the service, Ms Markle, 36, will join William, Kate and Harry for a private reception.

Suh's release is anticipated unless he agrees to a significant contract restructuring, which is unlikely. The Dolphins made the playoffs just once with Suh on their roster, and the defensive tackle posted declining sack totals of 6, 5 and 4.5. Suh had been a three-time All-Pro nose tackle in his five years out of Nebraska with the Detroit Lions.

Suh is also 31 years old and was unable to elevate a Miami defense that finished 16th in yards allowed and 29th in points allowed last season into the league's upper echelon.

Suh is the Dolphins best defensive player by far so what are the Dolphins thinking? While it's too early to decipher what teams might be interested in bringing on the sometimes-troubled Suh, we might have an idea of where he would want to go.
