He was drafted in the first round (nineteenth overall) of the 1984 NFL Draft. The Colts selected Solt with the draft pick received in the trade with the Denver Broncos, which had been forced by John Elway after he refused to play in Baltimore the year prior.
After making the Pro Bowl in 1987, Solt became entangled in a contract dispute and held out through the first month of the 1988 season, then was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for their 1989 first round pick and their 1990 fourth round pick. Solt was suspended for four games at the beginning of the 1990 season for steroid use. Solt re-signed with the Colts as a Plan B free agent in 1992.
