4th round pick Solomon Kindley signs contract

Former Georgia guard Solomon Kindley has signed his rookie contract with the Miami Dolphins. It’s a 4-year $4,079,570 contract and allows Kindley to get on the field as soon as training restrictions are lifted and preseason workouts begin.

Kindley, a three-year starter at Georgia, played 43 games in college, with 32 starts. Primarily making starts at left guard, Kindley also made seven starts at right guard.

He is expected to compete for a starting job out of the gate, with the Dolphins line having been a weak spot for several years. He will be up against incumbent Michael Deiter who struggled at times in his rookie campaign and newly signed FA Ereck Flowers.

Solomon Kindley is a big man

At 6′ 3″ and 337 pounds, Kindley has a thick powerful frame, ideal for interior line play. He has work to do on his pass protection but is a mean and nasty run blocker that will add some genuine grit and power to the Dolphins rush attack.

Contracts for rookies are a lot easier now the rookie wage scale than they used to be, but it’s always good to get the deals over the line quickly. Given the Dolphins emphasis this off-season on lineman this is a very positive early inking.
