Dolphins DT Randy Starks Making Argument Against Franchise Tag
The Miami Dolphins still have their 2013 franchise tag in their pocket, able to use it as a negotiating chip with their potential free agents.
Apparently, Pro Bowl defensive tackle Randy Starks sees the Dolphins targeting him with the tag. Starting early this morning, Starks has been tweeting about wanting to come back to Miami. There's a definite franchise tag overtone to the comments: "I want to be a dolphin!!! Not just for one more year....Discount yea clearance rack heck no!....I want to be here and finish here!"
The 2013 deadline for NFL teams to use their franchise tag is March 4 and the Dolphins could also use the tag on cornerback Sean Smith, running back Reggie Bush, tackle Jake Long, tight end Anthony Fasano, wide receiver Brian Hartline, or any number of other potential free agents. However, Starks makes the most sense financially (the tag number of $8.3 million would be around his average salary in a new contract).
