Per a source with knowledge of the situation, expect Suh to be released by the Dolphins after 4:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

There’s still a chance that someone will trade for Suh, but that would result in an immediate cap charge of $22.3 million. The net Womens Zach Parise Jersey savings would still be $3.9 million in cap space ($17 million in cash), and Suh could be off the books after 2018. Plus, the Dolphins may get something of value in return for him.

Cutting Suh means they’ll get nothing other than the ability to push $13.1 million in dead money to 2019.

With salary ceilings and floors (or spending caps) in place, long gone are the days where a player knows with absolute certainty who he’ll play for from year to year, however. Even those considered untouchable or under contract never know for certain where they’ll be hanging their cleats from one season to the next.

The Patriots have a system in place where certain positions and jobs are worth a certain salary. If a players’ demands exceed what the team has in mind, often the team moves on. There is no blame assigned in this instance – it’s simply business. But this is a system that has worked for the most part, regardless of what anyone thinks about it.
