Soliai, 32, was in the third year of his five-year, $32 million contract that included $14 million guaranteed when he was released with the post-June 1 designation last week.
In 2015, Soliai appeared in 14 games and recorded 22 tackles, no sacks, and a fumble recovery for the Falcons. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 57 interior defensive lineman out of 123 qualifying players.
