After spending the past several days in Indianapolis, NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal gets the "strong feeling" the Dolphins will use the franchise tag on free agent DT Randy Starks.
We're expecting the same. GM Jeff Ireland called his usage of the franchise tag "likely," and neither Sean Smith nor Jake Long is expected to receive it. That leaves Starks as the probable recipient for the relatively cost-effective price of $8.306 million. The tackle and cornerback tags are each more expensive.
