The Miami Dolphins and soon-to-be free agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh appear to have come to an agreement on their "negotiating positions" (since, under the NFL rules of the "legal tampering" period, teams and players cannot agree on contract details, just "negotiating positions"). According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, on Tuesday, the Dolphins will offer Suh a contract in the $114 million neighborhood, with $60 million in guaranteed money.

The contract, if Mortensen's details are correct, would be a six-year deal.

The Dolphins were linked to Suh almost immediately after the Lion officially did not franchise tag the defensive tackle. They cannot sign him until 4pm ET on Tuesday.
