The Dolphins are expected to choose between the two for a long-term contract. Soliai's agent, David Canter, told The Palm Beach Post on Tuesday that he expects the Dolphins to approach his client with a new offer during training camp next month.
"I'm optimistic the team will come to us with a fair market deal to try to get it done," Canter said. "If not, we'll play it out."
Canter also is "very optimistic" about Soliai's chances of remaining with the Dolphins "for a long time."
UPDATE: Those close to the situation told The Miami Herald on Wednesday that a long-term contract for Soliai is not expected to happen soon. Per The Herald, Soliai has no plans to hold out of training camp.
