The Miami Herald reported Tuesday that the veteran defensive tackle will be in attendance when the Dolphins begin mandatory minicamp workouts Tuesday.
Starks signed his $8.45 million franchise tender with the Dolphins in March, and has been seeking a long-term contract with the team. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported in April that the plan for Starks always was to attend mandatory minicamp. According to the Herald, Starks would be docked $66,000 in pay if he sat out the team's three workouts this week.
Starks might find himself in competition for a starting role. Jared Odrick shifted inside and received first-team reps alongside Paul Soliai during organized team activities. The camp development of rookie Dion Jordan and Olivier Vernon ultimately might impact Starks' role as well.
