    Those are not absolutely horrible numbers for either Jake or Randy

    I think if they could actually tag Long for $9.8 million, they would do it

    Easier to get a DT in this draft than a LT.

    I would tag Long. One year, gone or re-upped his career. Problem solved with yeatman getting one more year to develope.

    Long is eligible to recieve 120% of his 2012 salary which would put his number north of $15 million. I don't think that is happening

    Starks was half, if not more, of the reason why Miami had a stout defensive 4 against the run. He was also great, for a DT, at rushing the QB. He didn't keep up the great performances in the latter part of the season but he is worth keeping over Long, who is only valued based on reputation at this point. Tag Starks and draft or sign a decent RT, which shouldn't be hard based on the possible FAs and rookies that will be available.
