Tennessee Titans defensive end Adewale Ojomo — a former University of Miami player —was booked into jail Friday morning on a misdemeanor charge of soliciting a prostitute.

The 25-year-old lineman is expected to appear in bond court on Friday afternoon.

According to a Miami police arrest report, Ojomo solicited an undercover detective during a sting on Northeast Second Avenue and 22nd Street, an area known for prostitution.

“You got condoms? I need to get some,” Ojomo told the female undercover detective, offering $100 for sex, according to the report.

Ojomo was arrested by Miami’s newly re-instituted vice squad. His 2013 Lexus was impounded. He’ll have to pay $500 to get the car back from police.

He began his professional career as an undrafted free agent with the New York Giants, playing in one game. Last year, he has stints on the practice squads of Seattle and Buffalo.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pound lineman played 35 games with UM over three years, notching 79 tackles and 9.5 sacks. In August 2011, he suspended for one game for taking benefits from disgraced university booster Nevin Shapiro.

Ojomo, who played at Hialeah High, is the son of a former Nigerian professional soccer player and a Homestead-born certified public accountant. His cousin is former Dolphins linebacker Akin Ayodele.
