Ronald Matthew Solt (born May 19, 1962) is a former American football guard in the National Football League. He played professionally for the Indianapolis Colts and the Philadelphia Eagles.


Solt was born in Bainbridge, Maryland and graduated from James M. Coughlin High School in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.[1] He played college football at the University of Maryland.

He was drafted in the first round (nineteenth overall) of the 1984 NFL Draft.[2] 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.[3]
