Max Starks Re-Signs With Steelers

Offensive lineman Max Starks writes on Twitter that he has returned to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Good morning, Steelernation!!!! It is with great pleasure that I thank you for your prayers and support! I’m back!

This is good news for Steelers fans, who are sick of seeing their team’s offensive line struggle to protect Ben Roehtlisberger. The Steelers waived fellow offensive lineman Chris Scott (and not cornerback Bryant McFadden, as one reporter had speculated) to find a place on the roster for Starks, and Behind The Steel Curtain notes that Scott could hook on with the practice squad, assuming he clears waivers.

Starks, a Steelers veteran who has played parts of seven seasons with the team, can play either tackle position, which is good, because tackles Jonathan Scott and Marcus Gilbert have struggled. Starks isn’t likely to start right away, however – he hasn’t played any competitive football in months, and will therefore probably need a few weeks before he’s ready to play too much.
