    If Starks does not do an extension, BOTH DT's are up next year. Wow. Might be a target in the draft this year.

    I like the move. Starks is a hell of a player.

    Or they plan on keeping Soliai/Starks together for one year, letting Starks walk after this year, franchise Soliai again, or extend him, then bump Odrick inside, have Soliai/Odrick/Randle/ for 2014 and beyond.
    The pleasure of what we enjoy is lost by wanting more.

    good move, hopefully we can sort a long term deal in the next few weeks and bring the cap figure down a little

    I like tag on Starks, but at the same time it looks extremely foolish to have both of our DT's on contract years.
    Why would Ireland care about next year? He has to get past this year first.

    It's also possible Miami locked him in so they could trade Starks and get something in return rather then losing him with nothing other than a possible compensatory pick next year.

    Good move.

    Starks is a baller.

    Sign of a good GM in any industry is to think about the past, present, and future.

    So yes, Ireland should care about what happens next year. Hence why we drafted Johnathan Martin last year, to avoid the debacle with Jake Long and gain leverage on contract.

    If Starks does not sign a long term deal, we run into a scenario in which we could potentially lose both of our starting DT's, or they gain leverage knowing both are in contract years driving up the price.

    This is what leads team into cap trouble causing massive cuts.

    Don't be surprised when we draft a DT in the 2nd round, would have nothing to do with next year though......

    Starks is the teflon man -> nothing sticks LOL

    With the draft as deep at it is with DT and with teams running the hurry up the prudent thing would be for the team to draft a DT who can run and let Solai walk next year -> and we attempt to keep Starks who is a baller


    We now know that we will draft a DT in the 2nd -> 3rd rd, that is unless Starks signs a longer term deal

    What kind of a contract would it take to extend him. Would a 4 year 22.5 suffice? Bunkley got a 5 year 25 last year and is younger. I think 5-6.5 would get it done.
