Suh was a no show for the first day of the Dolphins voluntary minicamp, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. It's late April so this really doesn't mean all that much other than to prove once again that Suh marches to the beat of his own drummer and it not all that interested in being a leader for his defensive teammates.
Suh agreed to restructure his contract with the Dolphins on Saturday, the Palm Beach Post reports. He will not make a dollar less as a result of the restructure; the Dolphins will simply be able to spread out his 2016 cap hit over the life of the contract, allowing them more flexibility to sign free agents this offseason. Suh signed a six-year, $114 million deal last March, the largest contract in NFL history for a defensive player.
It's just a matter of time until the Dolphins restructure Suh's contract, reports Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. The Dolphins don't need to have permission to make this adjustment and by doing so Suh's cap number would shrink from $28.6 million to $10.5 million, a savings of almost $16 million.
Suh tallied three tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Colts. Suh signed a large offseason contract with the Dolphins, and he's struggled to live up to expectations so far in 2015. Although he recorded a sack in Sunday's game, he only has 5.5 for the year to go along with 57 tackles, which has certainly effected his IDP value in the fantasy world. Look for a bounce back year out of Suh in 2016.
Suh had a sack and three tackles for a loss in the Dolphins 20-19 victory over the Eagles Sunday. Suh also was assessed a roughing the quarterback penalty on Sam Bradford (not the hit that put him out of the game). Suh may finally be starting to feel comfortable in the Miami defense and could be a force to be reckoned with the remainder of the season.
