AP source: NT Soliai re-signs with Dolphins

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins nose tackle Paul Soliai signed a $12 million, two-year contract to remain with the team, a person familiar with the negotiations said Wednesday.

The person confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins hadn't announced an agreement.

Defensive back Richard Marshall tweeted that he agreed to a three-year deal with Miami.

Soliai's deal includes $6 million guaranteed. Last year, he played under a franchise-tag contract that guaranteed him about $12.5 million. He'll be a free agent again in 2014.

The 355-pound Soliai anchored the Dolphins' defense and went to the Pro Bowl for the first time last season, making the trip as a roster replacement. He was a fourth-round draft pick by the Dolphins in 2007 and has started since 2009.

Marshall started nine games last year for Arizona, and he has 17 interceptions in a six-year career. He'll compete for a job as the Dolphins' nickel back.
