Miami Dolphins will cut Ndamukong Suh

If Suh is designated as a post-June 1 cut, the team would save $17 million against the 2018 salary cap.

Miami already offloaded running back Jay Ajayi last season, and last week sent wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns. Releasing Suh now would save the Dolphins just $3.9 million against the cap.

As reported earlier, the Dolphins have told linebacker Lawrence Timmons he will be released prior to the start of the new league year on Wednesday.

The body of Gowhar Ahmad Lone, 24, of Molu Chitragam, Shopian , was found around 250 meters away from the site at Pahnoo. After the police arrived, a vehicle was found at some distance in which three youths were found dead, the official said.

Suh made bank the last time he was a free agent.

Suh signed a six-year, $114.4 million contract with the Dolphins in 2015 after five stellar seasons with the Lions, including three All-Pro selections.

In order to cut Suh, Miami will be taking on a cap hit of $22.2 million, which is believed to be biggest dead cap hit in National Football League history.

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. He has a reputation for needless penalties and dirty play, while his aloof personality raised questions about his leadership. 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. 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.
