Earlier on Friday, the Miami Dolphins traded with the Los Angeles Rams for defensive end Robert Quinn. This left the speculation that the Dolphins might be done with their costly defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suh. According to CBS Sports Jason La Canfora, this news confirms the latter. Here is how the financials break down in regards to releasing Suh. The Dolphins would take a $22 million dead cap hit by releasing Suh, and save only $3.9 million against the cap. But if they designate him a post-June 1 cut (can release before then), half that dead cap hit will be rolled over to 2019, meaning Miami would save about $15 million against the 2018 cap.
