  • Suh & Misi Restructured

    The Dolphins made a flurry of moves on Saturday, including saying goodbye to veteran receiver Greg Jennings.

    Jennings has been released after a disappointing season in Miami. The 32-year-old Jennings had just 19 catches for 208 yards in his only season as a Dolphin.

    Miami also restructured the contracts of defensive tackle Ndamunkong Suh and linebacker Koa Misi. Those moves were expected and will open up some cap space. Suh’s contract, in particular, has the potential to free up a lot of space this year: Before restructuring, Suh was slated to have the highest base salary in the NFL, at $23.485 million.

    The Dolphins also announced that they have tendered six exclusive rights free agents: safety Shamiel Gary, wide receiver Matt Hazel, tackle Ulrick John, cornerback Tyler Patmon, tight end Jake Stoneburner and safety Michael Thomas.

    These moves free-up roughly 20 million.

    I read that a article on SB Nation. The moves have created around $23.8M in cap savings. Now if we release Grimes that will push it up to over $30M. I would either release Cameron or restructure his deal to create even more cap space. I think I would just let Wake play out the final year of his contract. I don't want to extend our salary cap commitment to him beyond this coming season. So I think we can create an additional $13M or so in cap space.

      Jennings is a good guy but with all our overplayed players something's gotta give. I also agree that we should move on from Grimes and his pay. I understand we are creating a hole in our weakest link but we can get 2 good CBs for that price.
      The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

        My thinking for releasing Grimes is that will save us $6.5M. We can sign Janoris Jenkins for around $9M a year or Prince Amukamara for around $7M a year. So we can upgrade and get younger for not much more money. Furthermore we are probably going to draft Vernon Hargreaves in the first round so we would then have our 2 starting corners. I think Bobby McCain has the inside track to be our slot nickel corner and the remaining DB's on the roster are competing for roster spots and we might draft another corner in the later rounds.

          Restructuring Suhs contract did nothing but kick the can down the road. This was a very very foolish move. If you thought 23.5mil was bad this year you should look at the future. 2017: $19.6, 2018: $26.6mil, 2019: $28.6mil, 2020: $22.9mil. cap hits. Dead money for those years 43.4, 23.8, 14.1, 4.5.

          I was expecting a small restructure opening up about 8 mil this year and pro rating 2 mil over the next 4 years. This deal has now become a bad deal.

            If those numbers are correct I really hope the NFL increases the cap numbers for each team, each year, by a great deal otherwise those numbers are not looking great.

          NFLN reported that we have the most free Cap space of any team...

          The Cap isn't static and rises, as does salaries. I never worry about this stuff and defer to Sobe on it.

          Suh is still on a HOF track and should continue to be a dominating force.

          Hoping Joseph gets the most out of these guys. Something Coyles failed to do.

            Yeah, I'm not much good on cap numbers either and SoBe does a great job of explaining it but from a graph I saw, we're ranked 7th in the NFL for cap space. Can't be too bad if 25 teams are rated under us.
            While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

              I don't think we have the most free cap space, but I know we're high on total cap due to carryover from last year.

              Currently, after dumping contracts and before these 2 hit - we had $20M free. We should still have $19M free considering all we did was swap Grimes contract for Maxwell's and pick up Alonso's $1M salary.
