Dontari Poe Did Not Reach Agreement With Falcons, Will Visit With Dolphins


Jason La Canfora is reporting that free agent DT Dontari Poe did not reach an agreement with the Falcons during his visit to Atlanta and will now fly to Miami and meet with the Dolphins.


Josina Anderson of ESPN is reporting that free agent DT Dontari Poe is currently scheduled to travel tonight for a visit with the Dolphins. However, Poe has yet to leave Georgia.

This seems like a situation where Poe is trying to get either the Falcons or one of the other teams he’s met with to step up and make their best offer, or he’ll continue to meet with other teams.

As of now, Poe has visited with the Colts, Jaguars and Falcons since the market officially opened last week.

ESPN’s Ed Werder reported a few weeks ago that there are some concerns about Poe’s back along with his overall price, which is why he hasn’t signed with a team yet.

Poe, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2012. He played out his four-year, $11,320,006 contract but the Chiefs picked up his fifth-year option last year that will cost them $6.15 million for the 2016 season.

Poe is currently testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career.

In 2016, Poe has appeared in all 16 games for the Chiefs and recorded 27 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 46 interior defensive lineman out of 126 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
