STARKS WILL MAKE $8.45 MILLION IN 2013
The Dolphins beat the franchise tag deadline on Monday by designating Pro Bowl Defensive Tackle Randy Starks as the team's franchise player. Starks will now return to the Dolphins on a one year, $8.45 million contract and won't enter free agency next Tuesday. The Dolphins will continue to work on a long term extension with Starks, but the franchise tag prevents Starks from playing elsewhere in 2013 without heavy compensation.
The Dolphins also continue to have talks with 1,000 yard Wide Receiver Brian Hartline about a possible extension. According to the Miami Herald, both sides are optimistic that a deal can be reached before next Tuesday.
