Dolphins releasing Lawrence Timmons per league source

Dolphins releasing Lawrence Timmons per league source

The Dolphins will release defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh before the start of National Football League free agency, reports ESPN. He signed a $114 million, six-year deal with the Dolphins when he joined them in 2015, and his base salary this year would be $17 million.

Releasing Timmons and Suh later this week could save the Dolphins almost $24 million in cap space.

His release appears to realistic with all of the reports that came out Monday morning, and the veteran DT should get a lot of interest among teams in the league, including the Bolts. Good and even great players can still have a negative impact on a team dynamic. However, he also has made just one Pro Bowl in his three years with the Dolphins, who obviously may feel his best days are behind him.

The Dolphins rumors have swirled around if the Miami Dolphins will release DT Ndamukong Suh.

Suh later denied it, but there is a link between the three-time All-Pro lineman and the Eagles.

Darlington notes the move is part of a "culture change" in Miami, the latest in a growing line of big-name departures from the Dolphins.

When Suh likely hits the open market later this week - free agency officially begins Wednesday at 4 p.m. - he'll immediately become one of the top players available.

This will be a costly cut in terms of salary cap space.

In the end, Suh received $60 million for his three seasons of work in Miami.

Suh is only 31 years old, so there's no doubt that another team will be interested in his services.

The Falcons would have interest in Suh because they sorely need a defensive tackle capable of applying pressure from the interior next to nose tackle Grady Jarrett, with Vic Beasley and Takk McKinley rushing off the edges.
