The Dolphins made a lot of mistakes shelling out money to free agents last year. Branch is one of them. Myabe we can tade him to the Rams for DT Brockers. They need a DE, and we could use another DT.

The Phinsider wrote:
Branch signed a three-year contract extension last March with Miami, giving him $24-million over the span of the contract. Included in that was $16.8 million guaranteed, with $6 million of that a signing bonus. That includes all $7.9 million of Branch’s base salary for this year guaranteed, plus the $2 million of the prorated portion of the signing bonus and a $100,000 workout bouns, which brings his salary cap number to $10 million for this year. If Miami trades Branch - which seems like a desired move now that they are paying $10 million for someone who will likely be third in the defesnive end rotation - they would have $4 million in dead money (two years of the prorated salary cap) while picking up $6 million in cap space. If that trade were to come after June 1, the team would have $2 million in dead money this year, with an additional $2 million next year, giving them $8 million in space this year.

The question is, would someone be willing to take on $8 million in cap space for Branch?

So, the Dolphins asked Suh to take a pay cut (we don't know how much), and he says "no". Then he goes to play for the Rams for $3 million less. I am sure he is thinking this is an investment for next year's contract, but he will be 32 next year. Maybe he is tired of always being on a losing team and feels he will finally be in the playoffs.
