One could argue that Starks is having the best season of his excellent career. But with the 10th-year defensive tackle, that’s always just part of the story.

Already this season, he has held out of spring workouts, stewed over not starting and flipped the bird to the sidelines after getting a sack. And some — if not all — of these headline-grabbing events have been related to his contract saga.

He’s on a one-year deal and wants a long-term extension. But that’s not happening anytime soon; the Dolphins have not made any overtures about an extension in a long time.
