UPDATE: ESPN reports that Soliai has indeed signed with the Dolphins.

The biggest-named free agent reportedly on Denver‘s radar — well, other than that one — may not even make it to Dove Valley.

Nose tackle Paul Soliai is close to signing a contract with the Miami Dolphins, according to multiple reports that broke late Wednesday afternoon. Soliai (6-4, 355), who earned his first Pro Bowl with the Dolphins last season, was scheduled to visit with the Broncos Thursday.

If Soliai signs Miami’s dotted line, re-signing Brodrick Bunkley becomes all the more imperative for Denver. But two top-tier defensive tackles are better than one. Hopefully the Broncos can sway the 355-pounder to at least visit Mile High Country before he comes to terms with his former team.

    Not cool.

    So much for being”active” in free agency, we haven’t even re-signed our own free agents much less improved at any position. I know its early but this has been disappointing.

    We are being active to who we want.  Unfortunately for us, Soliai has just  re-signed with Miami.

    Yep just lost him.  http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/14/dolphins-keep-paul-soliai-on-two-year-deal-with-2014-option/

    2 yrs 18 mill. I am glad we didn’t sign him. He is not worth that much.

    And the hits keep coming.

    Rumor is Mario Williams hasn’t signed in Buffalo and is scheduled to leave there tonight. Maybe he’ll visit Dove Valley…..

  • dbroncs24/7

    Who do we want? Soliai, meriweather and mike adams? those are the only people I’ve heard of, we need to be pursuing more than that with the money we have. Lets bring in some people like tracy porter, aaron ross, reggie nelson, tolbert, michael bush, early doucet, dallas clark try for mario williams (a long shot), dan connor, jameel mcclain. At least some of these

    We’re just sitting around waiting while Manning shops our offer.  This is disgusting. 

    Hope they can lure Williams, but I think they’re too enamored with Manning to make a move. 

  • Magnus

    Actually imo he is worth that much.  We need a run stopping DT real bad.  To go along with S/CB/RB.  DT is the one position I wouldn’t have minded if Bowlen opened the check book a bit.  Mario is a luxury that would be nice, but but with Doom and Miller we don’t really NEED super mario.  We have no problems with pass rush.  Our problem is stopping the run

    It is sad.

    If they don’t get manning and keep losing out on good FAs, I’ll be pretty pissed at the front office.

  • dbroncs24/7

    I already am. We have enough money to improve our defense and still sign Peyton I hate to say it but Elway’s inexperience is apparent. We need more than just a qb they need to wake up.

    come on what is the front office doing so many good free agents out there that would plug some of our week spots but, nothing even though we have the money we aren’t spending it. Is Pat Bowlen he keeping it for himself if Payton doesn’t sign with us

  • Virginiabronco

    I have stated on here repeatedly that Manning is taking advantage of Denver’s front office and Elway’s inexperience as he uses Denver to bid up his contract.  He has no intentions of playing his remaining years in Denver, outdoors on grass,  with the winter weather, slick footballs, bad footing with a bum neck.  Not going to happen!  Not to mention, who is he going to throw the football too?  AND, Manning didn’t win until Manning had a running attack.  Just who might be leading our running attack this year?
    I fear this is just going to be another Denver PR disaster.
