The Dolphins have just $2.8 million in cap space, according to the NFL players union, but will add $17 million in space on June 1 because of the release of Ndamukong Suh. That money will be used to sign the draft class, fill positions of need (perhaps defensive tackle) and fill out a practice squad, with some money being left to fill needs that arise during the season or carry over to next spring.
What is the advantage of releasing a player pre-June and having to wait until June to have the money available to spend? To me, keep the player until June just encase you change your mind.
