Not going to happen (unless they plan to do it after June 1st next year). The cap hit would be huge. Still, Suh is playing like a monster and has been a coach on the field to the other defensive linemen.

La Canfora wrote that Suh’s “grabbing of quarterback Ryan Mallett's throat [against Baltimore on] Thursday night was just the latest in a string of incidents that will hasten his departure from the team that made him the highest-paid defensive player in the game just two years ago, according to a source close to owner Stephen Ross. The Dolphins are preparing to move on from the defensive tackle in 2018, the source said, and are prepared to absorb a hefty -- but hardly impossible -- 2019 dead cap hit to do so.”
But the Dolphins publicly and privately insist this is not the case, that Suh remains very much in the 2018 plans. They say on the record that the report is “100 percent not true.”Miami is allowing 95.4 yards rushing per game, ninth-best in the league, and 3.8 yards per carry, which is 10th best. Pro Football Focus ranks Suh among the league’s top three defensive tackles, based on 2017 performance.
Defensive coordinator Matt Burke said less than two weeks ago that the Dolphins very much appreciate what Suh is doing, not only his high-level play but his evolution into a mentor for young players.
