The Dolphins announced that the team has released defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh on Wednesday.
Suh, a five-time Pro Bowler, played for three seasons with Miami, and in 2017 he had 48 tackles, 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
The Dolphins were reportedly trying to arrange a trade for the 31-year-old Suh, but nothing materialized before the new league year.
Suh was originally selected by the Lions as the No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft. He was signed by Miami to a six-year, $114 million contract after five seasons with Detroit.
Suh was owed $16.985 million in base salary in 2018 with a cap of $26.1 million.
