MIAMI (AP) — Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s $114 million, six-year contract has been restructured by the Miami Dolphins to create salary cap space.

Linebacker Koa Misi’s contract was also restructured, the team said Saturday. Receiver Greg Jennings was released, clearing $4 million in cap space.

Details of the restructured deals weren’t revealed. The Suh move won’t reduce the overall value of his contract, but could create an additional $18 million under the cap.

Jennings had 19 receptions for 208 yards and one touchdown — the 64th of his career — in his only season with Miami last year.

Miami tendered six exclusive rights free agents — safeties Michael Thomas and Shamiel Gary, receiver Matt Hazel, tackle Ulrick John, cornerback Tyler Patmon and tight end Jake Stoneburner.
