Dolphins released Ndamukong Suh.

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports the move could be made as early as Monday, but Miami will likely wait until the new league year begins to make it official. Multiple reports have pointed to the Dolphins cutting ties with the All-Pro, and Suh himself hinted at the move in a tweet on Monday morning. Cutting him will save Miami at least $3.9 million against the cap, and a post-June 1 cut would save them around $17 million this year while kicking some dead cap down the road. Suh's contract was bloated, but he remains one of the top defensive tackles in the game. Even at 31, he will have a strong market.

Bears re-signed OL Bradley Sowell to a two-year contract.

Sowell served as a swing lineman for Chicago last season, starting one game at left guard and another at right tackle. He should fill a similar role moving forward.

Chiefs re-signed FB Anthony Sherman.

Sherman did have six catches and scored a rushing touchdown last season, but his biggest contributions come on special teams. That should continue moving forward.

MMQB's Peter King believes the Texans will be "all over" free agent LT Nate Solder.

Offensive line is Houston's biggest need, and getting Solder to fill the gap at left tackle would allow them to move 2017 fourth-rounder Julie'n Davenport to the right side. Solder will have no shortage of suitors, however, including the Patriots. Solder is expected to command at least $12 million per year on his next deal.

Seahawks re-signed S Bradley McDougald to a three-year, $13.95 million contract.

A flier one-year signing last March, McDougald was forced into a starting role following Kam Chancellor's injury and performed relatively well. With Chancellor's future at best in question, it made sense for Seattle to bring McDougald back. He should have the inside track on a starting job if Chancellor remains sidelined.

Cowboys re-signed DT Brian Price to a two-year, $1.35 million contract.

Price was an exclusive rights free agent, so he did well to land a two-year deal, although the contract likely contains few if any guarantees. The tackle should compete for a rotational role in camp.

Raiders released CB Sean Smith.

Signed to a four-year, $40 million deal in 2016, Smith never lived up to his contract with the Raiders, getting benched in literally his first game with the team. He was also charged with assault last August. Cutting him saves Oakland $8.5 million against the cap.
