Ireland had a few other good nuggets during his session:
- Ireland indicated the Dolphins already have decided to use the franchise tag. He said there was a "likelihood" of it at one point. At another point, he said he had a "pretty good idea" of where he was going for it.
- Ireland sounded less optimistic about re-signing offensive tackle Jake Long. Ireland said it was a "complicated" negotiation that has elements other contracts would not.
- My guess for that tag: Defensive tackle Randy Starks. Ireland said keeping the defensive line strong is a priority. Ireland said it was "very important" to get Starks back.
