Expected to be released, will Seahawks pursue Ndamukong Suh?

Expected to be released, will Seahawks pursue Ndamukong Suh?

Here's how the move affects the Dolphins' financial standing.

Earlier this month the Dolphins agreed to trade star wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns for a 2018 fourth round pick and a 2019 seventh round pick. Although it is hard for any defensive player to live up to that type of money, Suh performed at a high level for the Dolphins each season he was in Miami.

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.

The Dolphins will release Suh under the June 1 designation, which will save the team $17 million in salary cap space.

He added: "He was an education to watch and, afterwards, at 1.30am, he had beers with me in the dressing room and talked showbiz". Tributes are pouring in including from fellow Liverpudlian Claire Sweeney, who described Dodd as a "legend and an inspiration".

Moreover, Darlington reports that the impending release of Suh is the next step in coach Adam Gase's attempt to rebuild the culture in his locker room.

Despite his age and relative ineffectiveness over the last few seasons, Suh should have plenty of offers once released. At the time colleague Ryan Wilson wrote that Suh's contract could come back to haunt the Dolphins.

Suh may have hinted the upcoming move in a Twitter video on Monday in which he said, "There will be some exciting things going on".

Suh spent the first five seasons of his career with the Detroit Lions and the last three with Miami.
