Patriots Are Potential Landing Spot For Ndamukong Suh

Russini also reports that Suh is looking for the highest bidder, which could complicate things for either team.

One of the NFL's worst kept secrets was finally revealed on Wednesday as the Miami Dolphins cut Ndamukong Suh.

Suh previously signed a six-year deal worth $114 million with the Dolphins in 2015, but Miami seemed to be intent on clearing some cap space, which they have accomplished by shedding the All-Pro defensive tackle's remaining salary off their books. The team is now north of $20 million under the cap. He is coming off of a season where he played all 16 regular season games, had 48 tackles, and 4.5 sacks.

Per Pro Football Focus (subscription), Suh was their 5th best rated "interior defender" last season with a +91.0 grade overall, including a +92.4 grade in run defense.

Perhaps, most impressively is that the former Cornhuskers standout has only missed 2 games during his career-both of which were because of a suspension. He was due to earn $17 million this year, but a cap number of $26.2 million was too much for the Dolphins.

The Cowboys and Seahawks are both looking for help on the defensive line after disappointing campaigns in 2017. He'd also form a strong duo with fellow defensive tackle David Irving, who had a career year with seven sacks.

The Seahawks traded defensive end Michael Bennett to the Philadelphia Eagles.
