MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — The Miami Dolphins are hard at work as the NFL’s free agency period nears it’s opening.

Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s $114 million, six-year contract has been restructured by the 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.
