It's the Miami Dolphins releasing beast defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, as ESPN's Jeff Darlington had it first.

The Dolphins could've brought Suh back for another year, but his current contract carries a $16.985 million base salary and $26.1 million cap hit number for 2018.

On Friday, the Dolphins traded wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns after slapping him with the franchise tag.

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.

Global rugby is dramatically different now from where it was 12 months ago. "We're not going to change the way we play". That was the difference: we played well, we didn't take our chances. "We haven't been quick enough to adjust to that".

Until the Dolphins actually release Suh, Los Angeles and other interested suitors won't be able to reach out just yet. By designating Suh as a post-June 1 release, the Dolphins can save about $17 million against the cap.

The Seahawks wouldn't seem to want to come anywhere close to paying Suh what he had been making with the Dolphins.

He has never won a playoff game, and with him previous year, Miami finished 29th in run defense and 26th in sacks. He made the Pro Bowl in 2016 but never quite reached the same heights as he did with the Lions. He went on to have a very impressive first season in Dallas, totaling 25 total tackles, six sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over the course of 13 regular-season games.

He was named to four Pro Bowls while receiving an fantastic three First-Team All-Pro nods during those five initial seasons.

Suh can still destroy the pocket, a premium service in today's National Football League, and it'll be fascinating to see what market materializes for a great player who's never been shy about saying he wants to maximize his earning power.
