    Great news, now all that speculation of tagging that ball hawker Smith is over with! Now Miami can continue their dominance against the run.

    Re: Starks tagged

    Not crazy about it, but if anyone was to be tagged, Starks was the best option. Good start Jeff.

    Cool beans. That line still needs another fierce pass rusher though.

    im also very excited that the "lets tag Jake Long" nonsense will end.

    You can't use the franchise tag more than once, each team is limited to one tag each per offseason.

    Oh, okay. You're right. Armando says $8.45 million. I wonder why it's gone down so much so quickly.

    dont think it has.

    in 2010 it was $7 million
    in 2011 it was 12.5 million
    in 2012 it was 7.9 million
    this year 8.45 million

    not sure what caused the 2011 bump.. but this year seems to fall in line with around where it should be outside of that one hike

    Probably the best move we could've made for the tag. More deserving of his tender than Smith or Long would've been. I suspect we'll try to work out an extension midseason

    Awesome move. This was important, considering Miami's habit of using a rotating defensive line. Gives us more options. Also doesn't hurt that Starks is a manimal.

    Nice! Allows us to see what Odrick's progress looks like and to decide between Solia and Starks on who of the two we re-sign to a long term deal. Both will technically be in "contract years" again. Smart move, Jeff. :)

    Solid. They can still lock him up long term if they want too. So Starks is back, now we gotta lock up hartline and The two main guys I wanted back will be back.

    Smith? maybe if his price range comes down...same for Long.
    Never wanted reggie back, Time to let Miller take the regins and pair him with more of a between the tackles runner.

    Smart by Jeff not letting starks go.

    awesome, I really did not want to lose Starks. I think this will help the DL to continue to be a strength next year.

    Was hoping this would happen. Starks is the one FA, I thought you couldn't let walk. Period. He is in his prime, and plays the position at a high level. This also allows for a make or break year for Odrick, IMO.

    Keeping costs down, and solidifying the inner DLINE is a great thing.

    Big Paul made out like a bandit that year he was tagged.

    The D line is probably the strength of this team. Why mess with the chemistry ?

    I hope we can reach a new long term deal with him soon so we can cut that $8.45 cap number in half.

    Good move by the front office.

    And screw you ESPN. Checked their site at various times the last 2 hours and their little twitter feed just kept gushing about a Robert Kraft interview.

    Not saying he was not tagged, but does anyone have a better source to quote? No locals yet nor the major insiders at the national level.

    Me too. Not saying it has not happened, but I am surprised we have jumped all over this at this point. Let's see where it goes by 9am.
