Paul Soliai looks like he will be set to hit the open market in free agency on March 11. The team is unlikely to give him the franchise tag and he will get his opportunity to sign on with another team:
So Paul Soliai’s agent says the Dolphins have told him he will not be franchised. Today is the deadline.

Soliai will be sought after teams that are in need of a nose tackle in their 3-4 defenses. He is a big man who can clog the middle of a defense and would be a nice pickup for a team that is in need of someone to plug-in the middle of their defensive line.
Soliai should get some action in free agency. There are not many nose tackles available in the upcoming draft. Louis Nix will be the biggest name in the draft, but there are not many other players that can fill that nose tackle role in this coming draft. It should male Soliai a wanted commodity this offseason.
