DAVIE, Fla. -- Randy Starks doesn't want to leave Miami. But he is aware this could be his final season with the Dolphins.
Starks, the defensive tackle who last season was named to his second Pro Bowl in three years, had wanted during the offseason to sign a long-term deal. But the Dolphins placed the franchise tag on him, tying him to the team for at least one more season while putting his future after that in doubt.
"I don't want to go anywhere else, but if it happens, so be it," Starks said in an interview with FOX Sports Florida after Tuesday's third day of training camp and first day with contact drills. "Jason Taylor even had to go and he'd been here longer than me."
Taylor, a defensive end bound for the Hall of Fame, actually left the Dolphins twice. He departed for Washington in 2008 after having played his first 11 seasons with Miami. He then spent 2010 with the New York Jets, sandwiched between 2009 and 2011 seasons with the Dolphins.
