Dolphins’ defensive end Randy Starks made headlines in the spring for his Memorial Day mishap on South Beach.
These days, Starks is in the news and leads off today’s talking points for his what he’s been doing on the field.
1. Starks is having the most-productive season of any Dolphins’ defensive linemen.
Starks leads the group in with 26 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks. He has 14 tackles in the past two games and all his sacks during the past four outings.
He also made arguably the his biggest play of his two seasons in Miami when stopped QB Mark Sanchez for a 7-yard loss in the Jets’ final drive. If that wasn’t it, Starks’ first-quarter interception last season in the red zone at New England might be because it helped change the momentum early in the Dolphins’ 38-13 rout.
Starks moved into the starting lineup in the second week of training camp and hasn’t looked back.
In his sixth NFL season and just 25 years old, Starks is one of the team’s best free-agent signings under Bill Parcells and Jeff Ireland.
