The Miami Dolphins are going to release star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh as soon as today, according to a report from ESPN’s Jeff Darlington.
The plan is for Ndamukong Suh to be released as early as today as the Dolphins continue their attempt at a culture change – a plan that has purged arguably Miami’s three most talented players within last year. A lot riding on 2018.— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) March 12, 2018
Once the Dolphins make this official, Suh will be a free agent. He’ll be free to sign with any team.
Now’s the part where I remind you that, during the Eagles-Dolphins joint training camp practices last August, Suh allegedly told Philadelphia defensive line coach Chris Wilson he’d play for the Eagles for free.
Suh later denied he ever said that. But the writer who originally reported the Suh anecdote isn’t convinced.
Even if Suh DID say it, it’s possible he was just joking around or didn’t actually mean it.
But can you imagine if he was serious?
Some might be concerned about Suh’s impact in the locker room, but there’s no denying adding him to this Eagles pass rush would make the unit even more fearsome. Can you imagine Suh and Fletcher Cox wreaking havoc while playing next to each other? Can you imagine a defensive line that features Suh, Cox, Michael Bennett, Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett, Chris Long, and Tim Jernigan? That would be beastly.
Now, I obviously wouldn’t count on it happening. Suh is going to have a competitive market for his services as a free agent.
But never say never with Howie Roseman. You know how much the Eagles value building in the trenches. And if Suh really does offer to play on an inexpesnive deal (lol), well, the Eagles couldn’t turn that opportunity down.
At the very least, it’s something to keep an eye on.
