I think everyone knows that Starks is part of the Bill Parcells rebuilding project and is not in Ireland's longterm plans since he is 30. He's been very good for us and very unselfish. I hope he has an outstanding year this year.
Deal between Starks, Dolphins unlikelyJason La Canfora (CBS Sports NFL Insider) - Randy Starks, DL, Miami Dolphins
: Nothing at all to note here, and it certainly appears that Starks will play out this year and hit free agency. They never got close on a long-term deal before franchising him, and haven't seemed all that concerned about doing one now after making a huge splash in free agency. Starks' relative youth, combined with his versatility and effectiveness will make him attractive on the open market and the Dolphins ended up not extending the previous franchise player they tagged -- Paul Soliai. Soliai ended up back there because the market for him was fairly tepid, but that won't be the case for Starks with another strong season, especially if say Melton gets a new deal and Atkins is tagged. (Atkins getting tagged, by the way, is a certainty barring them doing an extension or some unfortunate catastrophic injury.) At this point, those close to Starks would be pretty surprised if he just plays out the tag.http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/jason ... o-get-doneROTOWORLD -
Starks desperately wants a multi-year deal, but lost what little leverage he had when he signed his $8.5 million tender on March 19. With Starks going on 30 and the Dolphins already having a number of big-money contracts on the books, Starks is going to have to be content playing on a one-year deal.http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/30836924/ ... ayer_news/
