Ball skills usually aren’t part of the requirements to play defensive tackle in the NFL.

But for Dolphins defensive tackle Randy Starks, it’s become a niche.

Starks intercepted his third pass in two seasons in last week’s 17-13 win at Cincinnati, the most for any defensive lineman over that span.

Along with three tackles, half a sack and two passes defensed, that also led to AFC defensive player of the week honors.

Starks also keys a defense which allows a league-low 61.4 rushing yards per game.

In another sign of how rare a commodity he is, he’s the first Dolphins lineman to win player of the week honors since Jason Taylor in 2006.

Good for him, he's proving that he and Soliai are going to be a force to reckon with in the middle of our d-line. Hopefully we can re-sign him after this season and keep this pair together.
