NFL Free Agency: Dolphins, DT Earl Mitchell agree to 4-year, $16 million deal

The Miami Dolphins have signed Houston Texans defensive end Earl Mitchell, who will replace Paul Soliai.

From CBS:

With the Dolphins losing defensive tackle Paul Soliai to the Falcons, they’ve reportedly replaced him quickly with former Texans defensive tackle Earl Mitchell, signing him to a four-year, $16 million deal, according to various reports.

Soliai got a richer deal, signing a reported contract worth five years and $33 million with Atlanta, but Miami gets a younger player (Mitchell is 26 years old compared to the 30-year-old Soliai).

Here received a congratulatory tweet from famous Houston sports reporter John McClain.
