If Suh is designated as a post-June 1 cut, the team would save $17 million against the 2018 salary cap.

Last week, the team released another star player - Jarvis Landry.

Suh, 31, is expected to be released in the near future after spending three seasons with the Miami Dolphins.

Suh signed a six-year, $114 million contract with Miami in 2015.

How to Watch Chelsea vs. Crystal Palace
However, they can make up some gap on their rivals this week as Manchester United and Liverpool play each other on the same day. We deserved to win. "Compared to last season, yes, of course it's not as good, because Chelsea dominated the league so much".

With the Detroit Lions, Suh was a dominant force in the middle for five seasons, making the Pro Bowl four times and being named first-team All-Pro three times.

Suh later denied it, but there is a link between the three-time All-Pro lineman and the Eagles. The Dolphins, specifically Adam Gase is trying to change the culture in Miami and that starts with attitude. Releasing him now without that designation would save less than $4 million in cap space. 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.

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports that the Dolphins plan on releasing Suh - and the move could come as early as today. He has a reputation for needless penalties and dirty play, while his aloof personality raised questions about his leadership. But he is 31 years old, and it is hard for any human to produce at a level commensurate with the scheduled level of play, when your position is defensive tackle.

The Falcons would have interest in Suh because they sorely need a defensive tackle capable of applying pressure from the interior next to nose tackle Grady Jarrett, with Vic Beasley and Takk McKinley rushing off the edges.
