The Steelers added depth on the offensive line today by re-signing a familiar face, offensive tackle Max Starks. Financial terms of the one-year deal were not disclosed.
Starks (6-8, 345) spent all seven years of his career with the Steelers after the team drafted him in the third round (75th overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft. He started 68 games in seven years with Pittsburgh, including seven in 2010 before suffering a season-ending neck injury that landed him on the Reserve/Injured List on Nov. 10, 2010.
Starks started seven postseason games during his seven years in Pittsburgh. He started at left tackle in the Steelers' Super Bowl XLIII victory over the Arizona Cardinals and started at right tackle in the team's Super Bowl XL win against the Seattle Seahawks.
To make room on the roster, the Steelers released second-year offensive lineman Chris Scott.
