Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is expected to be released by the Miami Dolphins as early as Monday, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
Suh, a three-time All-Pro, tweeted Monday morning in a video: "There will be some exciting things going on."
Suh, 31, signed a six-year, $114.4 million contract in 2015 but totaled only 15.5 sacks in the last three seasons. He made the Pro Bowl in 2016.
The timing of the move is puzzling because the Dolphins will save only $3.9 million in salary cap space with a $22.2 million penalty. If they waited until June 1 to release Suh, $9.1 of the $22.2 million of dead money would count against the 2018 cap with the remaining $13.1 million against the 2019 cap.
