The Miami Dolphins have placed a franchise tag on Nose Tackle Paul Soliai, according to Jason La Canfora of NFL.com. The tag will be worth around $12.5 million, and it will keep Soliai in Miami for a minimum of one more year.
This news comes after Soliai was expected to enter free agency because the Dolphins wouldn't have been able to pay him the contract he was expecting due to the 30% rule.
This is very good news because the Dolphins were likely going to have to enter into a bidding war with multiple other teams for Soliai if he did hit free agency. Nose tackles with his size and talent are at a premium in the NFL, and it is important that Miami locked him up for another year.
Thanks for reading, and let me know your thoughts on tagging Soliai.
