Dolphins plan to release Suh, shopping RT James

In addition to now knowing that Steelers will release cornerback William Gay, the team's second of two fifth-round draft picks in 2007, it's now being reported that the Miami Dolphins have released linebacker Lawrence Timmons, Pittsburgh's first-round draft pick in 2007.

Suh's release also will take a large contract off Miami's books.

Suh would count $22 million in dead money for the Dolphins in 2018 if he's cut.

Interestingly, Suh tweeted a video this morning from Seattle, generating plenty of buzz about the possibility of the Seahawks pursuing him once he becomes a free agent.

His career has tailed off a bit with the Dolphins over the last three seasons.

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the team will likely release defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh before the start of the new league year on Wednesday. "Be some exciting news going on". National Football League rosters can turnover quickly, but how much time does head coach Adam Gase have to see the culture change through?

Suh initially signed a 6-year, $114,375,000 contract and was, according to Spotrac, expected to make about $16.9 million this season.

Echoing Darlington's culture comments, La Canfora wrote "Suh's leadership and on-field behavior have always been in question", while he "has been seen as aloof by many teammates".

They will release perhaps the face of the team and its best player, but that is the cost of trying to abruptly change the culture.

The Dolphins traded running back Jay Ajayi in October and last week dealt wide receiver Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns. He was also the 2010 Defensive Rookie of the Year and a three-time first-team All-Pro selection with the Lions. He remains an elite player in the trenches and proved that last season with 48 tackles, 4.5 sacks and forced two fumbles.
