The Atlanta Falcons will cut defensive tackle Paul Soliai next month after he and the club couldn't agree on a restructured contract, FOX Sports NFL Insider Alex Marvez reports.

Soliai's agent passed along the news.

Soliai, a nine-year veteran, played the last two seasons in Atlanta, starting 14 games in 2014 and 10 last season.
