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).

Mitchell is the No. 100-ranked free agent on the CBSSports.com list, and he recorded 48 tackles and 1.5 sacks last season.
