    I think so.

    The players Miami could use the tag on are Jake Long ($15 mil), Reggie Bush ($8.1 mil), Brian Hartline ($10.4 mil), Anthony Fasano ($6.0 mil), Randy Starks ($8.3 mil) and Chris Clemons ($6.8 mil).

    Of those, the player that is worth closest to the franchise cost is without a doubt Randy Starks. The franchise tag is about $3 million overvalued for Reggie Bush and Anthony Fasano, about $4 million overvalued for Chris Clemons, $5 million overvalued for Jake Long, and $6 million overvalued for Brian Hartline.

    Yet, it's only about $1 to $2 million overvalued for Randy Starks.

    I think Starks is a priority. Not sure it matters but Starks and Soliai are both 29. I was thinking let starks walk because we can kick Odrick inside and Soliai is younger but he isn't. I could see Soliai not getting resigned next year. Also I thought the tag for Long would be $9.6?

    The D line is a strength of this draft. Franchise him for one year and then draft his replacement in the 3rd round

    Agree 100 percent. Er, with the exception that I believe the tag is closer to 8 million overvalued for Hartline. Nothing but a 3rd or 4th WR on a talent team. Good possession WR with mediocre speed and fairly slow feet and limited leaping ability and mediocre hands. If I were a GM there is no way in heck that I would pay over 2.5 million per for that kind of [non]talent.

    DT will be a factor in the draft if Starks is tagged because BOTH Soliai and Starks would be free at the end of next year.

    Starks is worth it.

    I'm just quoting what I believe to be market values for the guys. I'm not saying we should sign them at the prices suggested.

    He's the only realistic candidate in my opinion. I could really see him being tagged and sign a 3-4 year deal afterward that would be more cap-friendly. Something like a 4 years/24 M$ with 14 M$ guaranteed.
