The Denver Broncos pursued defensive tackle Paul Soliai in free agency when things began on Tuesday, but he quickly signed a new deal to return to the Miami Dolphins. The Broncos must now see if they can retain Brodrick Bunkley, a starter last year at defensive tackle, since he is visiting the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, according to Larry Holder.
Bunkley came to the Broncos via a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles after the Cleveland Browns decided to void the deal they had with the Eagles. He eventually assumed a starting role with the team and was paired with Marcus Thomas since Ty Warren went down with injury during the preseason and Kevin Vickerson shortly into the regular season.
Soliai signed a two-year, $12 million contract, likely setting the parameters for the eventual deal Bunkley signs with his future team.
