Found June 04, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
The Miami Dolphins already extended one player heading into a contract year, Cameron Wake, this offseason, but it appears they are not done. According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are expected to begin work on an extension with defensive tackle Randy Starks, as well as possibly cornerback/safety Sean Smith and wide receiver Brian Hartline, in the coming weeks. It makes sense that they’d try to extend these players now because, as they announced earlier today, they will be using the franchise tag on Jake Long next offseason if a deal can’t be worked out between the Dolphins and their former #1 overall pick before then.

Report: Dolphins will use the franchise tag on Jake Long if they need to

Getty Images According to Miami Herald, if the Dolphins aren’t able to lock up left tackle Jake Long to a long-term extension next offseason, they’ll use the franchise tag on him, order to keep him from hitting the open free agent market.

With a key piece gone (WR Brandon Marshall), new coach (Joe Philbin) and a quarterback controversy (Matt Moore, David Garrard and Ryan Tannehill), the fantasy outlook for this...
