Default Paul Soliai re signs with the Dolphins

Good job Peyton manning keep distracting Broncos front office long enough.

Jason La Canfora ‏ @JasonLaCanfora


Paul Soliai's 2year deal in MIA includes $12M in new money and when coupled with '11 franchise tag totals $24M/3yrs w/$18M gu

I have a feeling we end up with none of our main FA targets in the end.

This sucks, but it's so much easier for a player to stay where they are at than move to another team. You really need to overpay to lure people from home.

this reminds of missing on the DT's last season only to see them sign for around 5 mil per instead of the fan expected bank breaking 8-9 mil per.

Why do people freak out about not wasting tons of money in free agency. If you really want a big 2 gap NT, just trade down in the first, pick up a high second, and draft Alameda Ta'amu. No reason to spend 20+ mil on a guy we can just draft for much cheaper. They guy was probably just feeling out the market anyway. It sounds like he had every intention of signing back with the Dolphins.

If they lose Manning too now, the front office is going to look really bad and have a lot of bad PR to deal with, not to mention the fallout of a scorned Tebow.

I'm guessing this is the type of contract Bunkley wants now too. Bunkley has had one decent year, and it just happens to be his contract year. Hmmm...

Why would Manning come to this cluster? We can't even get anyone else to visit.

We should have jumped on it for $6M...what a disgrace.

Blaming Manning is beyond a joke. He shouldn't be affecting any defensive rebuilding at all.

Oh, man when you put it that way, it sounds so easy!

Tell us, O Great Prognosticator, who else should we trade down and draft?

Yeah, then we could call up Stoke, maybe Kevin Kasper. Trade DT for a conditional 5th. Keep Decker.

Call them Tres Amigos Blancos and ride the wave all the way to the title. Manning makes every receiver a pro-bowler.

Cheap for a beast run stuffer.

We got played again.

This Manning thing was cool and all but now I'm pissed the **** off.

I have a feeling this is being used as nothing more than excuse to not spend if he doesn't sign.
