The Dolphins issued a vehement on-the-record denial on Sunday of a CBS report that said Miami plans to part ways with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Quoting a source, CBS’ Jason La Canfora said the Dolphins plan to move on from Suh after this season. La Canfora wrote that Suh’s “grabbing of quarterback Ryan Mallett's throat [against Baltimore on] Thursday night was just the latest in a string of incidents that will hasten his departure from the team that made him the highest-paid defensive player in the game just two years ago, according to a source close to owner Stephen Ross. The Dolphins are preparing to move on from the defensive tackle in 2018, the source said, and are prepared to absorb a hefty -- but hardly impossible -- 2019 dead cap hit to do so.” But the Dolphins publicly and privately insist this is not the case, that Suh remains very much in the 2018 plans. They say on the record that the report is “100 percent not true.” Suh had played very well, producing 22 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one forced fumble and helping anchor a defense that is much better against the run.
