There’s been talk about the Dolphins restructuring defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s contract in order to create more cap space to use this offseason and it looks like he’ll have some company should that come to pass
Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports that the Dolphins are close to an agreement on a revised contract with linebacker Koa Misi. Misi has two years left on the four-year deal he signed with the team in 2013.
Misi is set to make $4.275 million in base salary in 2016 and $4.175 million in 2017. There’s no word on whether Misi would be converting money to a signing bonus to spread out the cap hit or if it will be a straight pay cut. If the Dolphins released Misi, they would get over $3.7 million of cap space.
Misi started all 11 games he played last season and made 78 tackles. He’s started 70 games overall for the Dolphins since joining the team as a second-round pick in 2010.
