Jeff Darlington of ESPN reports that the Dolphins will release Ndamukong Suh and that the move could come as early as Monday. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network said the move will likely happen on Wednesday when the new league year starts and the team is able to spread the cap hit out over two seasons.
Timmons, who lost contract guarantees because of his disappearing act, was set to earn $5.5 million in 2018.
The release of Timmons by the Dolphins is not a bit surprising.
The Dolphins signed the veteran linebacker last offseason.
The Dolphins are moving on from Suh as they continue their attempt at a culture change - a plan that already led to the trades of wide receiver Jarvis Landry?last week and running back Jay Ajayi?in October.
Trump executive order will exclude Australia from new tariffs
Despite being one of the world's largest suppliers of raw commodity, iron ore, Australia is a small global exporter of steel. Australian steel and aluminium to the United States were worth just over $400 million a year ago .
Suh's release is not a complete surprise, but the timing was always in question. Each summer, the National Football League allows each team to designate two players as post-July 1 cuts, when the rules for how salary cap figures work change, so by using one of the designations on Suh, they'll be able to get out of $17 million of his cap commitment.
Suh signed a six-year, $114 million contract with Miami in 2015.
Timmons' release leaves $7.25 million in dead money on the team's salary cap.
In the end, Suh received $60 million for his three seasons of work in Miami. He joined the Dolphins a year ago, went AWOL on the eve of the opener, was briefly suspended and returned to have a poor season. The 31-year-old has played well for Miami and not missed a game in three years, but head coach Adam Gase feels moving on from Suh is necessary. The Dolphins made the playoffs as a wild-card team in 2016, but are coming off a disappointing 6-10 season.
