Randy Starks open to giving Dolphins a discount, not wild about 'clearance' price or franchise tag

Monday at 4 p.m. (EST) is the deadline for NFL teams to apply the franchise tag to their looming unrestricted free agents. And since Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland has said the team will likely use the designation and defensive tackle Randy Starks seems a logical designee, as I told you on Feb. 19, we await what seems inevitable.

Apparently Starks has gotten wind either directly from the team or other avenues that he might be a franchise tag target -- particularly since negotiations for a long-term deal haven't exactly proved fruitful.

[Update: The Dolphins do indeed plan to place the franchise tag on Starks, sources say.]

So Starks on Sunday did what NFL players in 2013 do when they have something to say.

He took to twitter.

"I want to be a Dolphin!!!" Starks tweeted with multiple exclamation points. "Not just for one more year ..."

Well, clearly it seems Starks wants to be with the team longterm and not just for the one-year franchise designation. That franchise tag would guarantee Starks up to $8.45 million for one year in exchange for the exclusive rights to him. It would also cost the Dolphins that same amount off their salary cap space. But it is effectively only a one-year deal.

And Starks wants a multi-year contract.

And on that topic the Dolphins and Starks agent Tony Paige have been discussing a deal but the sides have opposing views of what that discussion is over. The Dolphins believe they're making a solid effort to keep Starks with a good long-term offer. Starks side believes the Dolphins are trying to pay K-Mart prices for a Pro Bowl player.

Starks also says he's not adverse to giving the Dolphins a hometown discount but that has a limit.

"Discount yeah clearence rack heck no," Starks tweeted. "I want to be here and finish here!"

Why? Explain yourself, PG13. I like to learn.

Oscar what's your lipid levels

You need to saute meat at very high heat. Butter burns too quickly, it is better for eggs and veges. Olive oil or grape seed oil handle a lot more heat without burning and are neutral in flavor, therefore far superior.

Olive oil is very good for you , outstanding

Good to know Carl. I was with Oscar on the debate until I heard all the facts on Olive oil and grape seed oil.

PLEASE PEOPLE,


TELL US ANYTHING WE DON'T KNOW.........


I HATE THESE WORDS (( GOOD FOR YOU ))....

PS...ALL THE WORLD KNOWS ,GOOD OLIVE OIL IS (( GOOD FOR YOU )),,,

Alright, Carl, I get your point. However, I believe sautee in butter at high T is for pieces of food and not for whole pieces. Lower your T and butter will not decompose so fastly. IMO

ALOCO,

Another place to try if you like Whole Foods is Trader Joe's. I'm not sure if they have them in Florida but one just opened here three months ago and I'm hooked!

Low fat high fiber is what I recommend along with lot of greens plus protein fish and chicken if you eat this you should live until your 90 Maybe by then we can win a Super Bowl!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love wegmans myself

There getting ready to build a Wegmans here soon! I live in Central Virginia.

In any case, if you use high T to cook, you can always use 1/4 olive oil to 3/4 butter. It will prevent the high decomposition.

OH,MY GOD........

TRADER'S JOE IS 3 MINUTES FROM WHERE I LIVE ..

THE WORST STORE EVER...

EVERY THING PACKED NICELY ,BUT THE TASTE IS VERY AWFUL ,BIT FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW FOOD IS GREAT...

ANOTHER THING ABOUT THAT STORE,THEY ARE FAMOUS FOR SELLING,CREAM CHEESE,MILKE AND OTHER ITEM AFTER THEY EXPIRE ....


THEIR PRICES ARE VERY CHEAP,B/C THEY SELL ALL THEIR FOOD UNDER THEIR NAME ,,,

WOODSHED...

DID YOU EVER HEAR OF THE SUPER KOREAN STORE,,(( H MARKET )).....?

Lots of People afraid to die here.

You will love wegmans it's a little pricy but the quality is grade a

I like the Asian and Indian TV dinners at Trader Joes.I work nights and it beats Salisbury Steak and Meatloaf. They also have a good cheese and wine selection.

Oscar it's scary I almost died I had a heart attack at 43 a big one

ALOCO,

There are no Korean stores where I live. I have a Whole Foods, World Market and a Trader Joe's. everything else is just generic grocery shopping.

YOU, if so, must take special care of yourself, Marc. Doesn't mean that Everybody else needs to be like you. Worst thing for People is to compare themselves.

Very true ,i do the right thing now I'm fine

Except for the three stents in my arteries

WHOLE FOODS IS THE BEST BY A MILE..I NEVER EAT FISH OR MEAT NOT BOUGHT FROM THERE,,,

ALL THE OTHER STORES ARE TRASH,,,,,

THAT KOREAN STORE (( H MARKET )) IS IN NY AND BOSTON ,THEY R FAMOUS FOR THEIR FRESH FISH WHISH FLOWN SAME DAY FROM NY AND JAPAN ,,,,,

That's smart I'm gonna check it out

We usually shop Costco and SAMs club but everything is so big

Oscar eat like the Romans do!

If animal fat was good for our Ancestors to cook with,then it must be also good for Us to cook with. We are all here, aren't We?

COSTCO AND SAMs ARE MADE TO SUCK OUT


MONEY OUT OF YOU POCKET.


DUMB PEOPLE GO THERE AND BUY ABOUT 200 DOLLARS TO JUSTFY THE TRIP .

Your right every time we go we spend like 400 dollars

Dieting is one of the prime examples of the systemtic brainwashing subjected in these Societies.

WHEN WE GO SHOP FOR FOOD ,IT SHOULD BE PLEASENT AND HAVING GOOD TIME ,NOT RUNING AROUND LIKE DUMB AMERICAN TRYING TO BUY EVERY THING IN SITE,THE GO HOME AND STUFF THE FRIG QITH THE FROZEN CRAPPY FOOD AND THE WORST MEAT TO EAT AND THAT COLD CUTS WHO I CAN'T STAND EVER,,

Now this is only talked about on Internet. Don't go spouting about these Truths in Real World or you will be annhilated.

Depends on which ancestors you are referring to. Mine cooked their meat over an open flame.

What you eat defines you as a person

So if you eat dick , you are a dick

That is best, Daniel. But in more Civilized Societies where there were already kitchens, pots and pans, Fat was used.

Good night chow

Funny thing. With the advancing of Technology, I managed to cook 2 T-bone steaks today, wind and all. Delicious. And no Grease at all.

If I lived in a place that was warm year round, I would always cook on the grill! That is the best.

Oscar,

You are better off cooking in olive oil or grapeseed oil, and then, if you so desire, after the steak is done, pass some melted butter over it, and if you like with herbs, or garlic, or shallots.

Ross, pay for some star players and stop ripping off the Dolphin fans.

Coconut oil is healthier then olive oil.

Pay Randy with the contract he deserves. He put it on film and wants to be here. Unlike Sean "hands of stone" Smith and Fake Long.

Harmel was born inside a tin can and then was raised in the freezer.

Check out this French Panty Waste talking about which stores are what for getting his fish.

You panzified simpleton! I get all my Fish from Lake Superior or the Muniscong River. FRESH - NEVER Frozen.

Like a REAL man, I fend for myself. Of course the French wouldn't know anything about that. If you don't believe me, just read a History Book!

ValHalla!!!!

odin you get your fish from a can. just like your spagettios and sloppy joe.

Saltine Cracker,

You get your lips from your Mom?

You know, your French Grand Mammy was sucking off Gi Joes for cigarettes.

It must be a generational thing with you Beret Wearing Tarts!

Your irritable response is your confession.

I will get you a brand new high tech can opener for xmas!

Whats the difference between a French Woman and a French Man?

Nothing, they both squat when they pee.

Hitler was an idiot.

Anybody knows you exterminate the French before the Jews.

The Lazy French Tards wouldn't even fight for their OWN COUNTRY-Bhwaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaa!!!!

I'd take a hard working Jew anyday-lol!

Most 7 year olds can tell better jokes than that.

odinstank is a rare breed, physcially 68 and mentally 6.

Love Big Jake just not sure he's a fit for zone scheme. Starks is very good but be careful of cost because of depth at DT. Feel that Odrick and R-Mac can fill spot capably. Must get M Wallace to win close games like the two OT and close losses last yr. Patterson (TEN) is a genetic freak that in two yrs will become a cross between Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson. Let's get this WCO rolling and put up more than 17 or 20 pts a game!
