After getting rid of one of their biggest names on offense, the Miami Dolphins may be ready to move on from one of their top stars on defense.

Running back Jay Ajayi was traded last season, and receiver Jarvis Landry was traded last week.

Three-time All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is expected to be released, NFL Network reported on Monday. The Bills' signing cornerback Vontae Davis to a one-year worth up to $8 million showed they could be in the market for older, more accomplished free agents. The defensive lineman, who was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, can be an overwhelming physical presence in the trenches at his best. Ndamukong Suh could be the next player to depart Miami. He is ruthless in his pursuit of the quarterback, often times executing cheap shots on the vulnerable opposing signal caller. He has been a model of durability, missing only two games in his eight-year career. His sack number totaled 15.5 in South Beach and while he did make the Pro Bowl in 2016, his other two seasons represented good-to-average campaigns.

Bears fans know Suh well from his time in the same division. On all three occasions, the Lions and Dolphins were eliminated in the wild card round as the visiting team.

Suh's release is not a complete surprise, but the timing was always in question.

Adding Suh would really not be fair to the rest of the league when you consider that Schwartz could line him up with Fletcher Cox and Tim Jernigan then, on the outside, turn loose Michael Bennett, Brandon Graham, Chris Long and Derek Barnett. Are the Dolphins in win-now mode or are they rebuilding for the future? The Dolphins, specifically Adam Gase is trying to change the culture in Miami and that starts with attitude.
