Defensive tackle Paul Soliai is scheduled for a visit with the Denver Broncos, but it may just be a way for him to decide on the length of the contract he would sign with the team. Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole reports that Soliai is seeking either a two- or five-year deal with the Broncos:

It'll be interesting to see the length of the deal the Broncos give out this year. Last summer with the shortened free agency period, the Broncos did hand out more than a two-year deal to any signee, and those were to running back Willis McGahee and defensive tackle Ty Warren (who missed the entire season).
We can be certain that Manning will receive a contract for multiple years, but beyond that John Fox and John Elway might not want to tie up copious amounts of money over several years. But the Broncos could certainly use a 6-foot-4, 355-pound defensive tackle to stuff the middle of the line.
