Dolphins Free Agency 2012: Paul Soliai Unlikely To Receive Franchise Tag

Monday is the first day that NFL teams can franchise one of their free agents, ensuring that they will keep that player for the next year while they decide if they want to come to a long-term contract. The fellas over at SB Nation have put together a list of a player on each team that they feel might get franchised, and ranked them in the order of likelihood. According to them, the Dolphins are very unlikely to franchise Paul Soliai for a second straight year.

They franchised him last year, but I doubt that happens again. His agent has said there aren't any indications that the franchise tag or a deal is coming from the Dolphins' front office. I've seen crazier things but expect Soliai to hit the open market.

The Dolphins don't really have another player that could get franchised, so it will be interesting to see if they use that tag at all.
