The Miami Dolphins have been a little quiet on the NFL free agency front outside of their trading wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the Chicago Bears. In some good news however, the Miami Dolphins will be re-signing free agent nose tackle Paul Soliai according to a report.
Just confirmed that Paul Soliai is in fact coming back to the Dolphins. Definitely surprising given how little movement there was for awhile— Ben Volin (@BenVolinPBP) March 14, 2012
Soliai was originally a fourth-round pick by the Miami Dolphins in the 2007 NFL Draft. Soliai was set to be a free agent during the 2011 offseason, but was hit with the franchise tag before the NFL Lockout. The Dolphins chose not to franchise tag Soliai in the 2012 offseason, but have managed to bring him back on a new deal. Soliai replaced Haloti Ngata in the 2012 Pro Bowl when Ngata pulled out.
