Steelers bring back Max Starks

The Steelers have resigned offensive tackle Max Starks. There was a lot of doubt about this because Starks tore his ACL in January and because Starks was out of football as recently as last October with weight issues. However, he’s still only 30 years old and played pretty well as the Steelers’ left tackle last year. He allowed 6 sacks, 7 quarterback hits, and 20 quarterback pressures, while committing 5 penalties and run blocking well in 13 starts, including playoffs. He’ll provide insurance at left tackle for 2nd round rookie Mike Adams, while 2011 2nd round pick Marcus Gilbert will remain at right tackle.
