Max Starks Says He'll Stay At Left Tackle

The Post Gazette’s Ed Bouchette caught up with some players who are arriving today, and Max Starks says he’ll stay at left tackle, with newly-acquired Flozell Adams moving from left tackle to right:

Adams, 35, is due in camp today after singing [sic] with the Steelers as a free agent Thursday. In addition, Trai Essex said he will remain at right guard. Essex started at right guard last season but there was speculation he might move back to right tackle after Willie Colon was lost for the season with an Achilles tendon injury.

Starks said Sean Kugler, the Steelers’ new offensive line coach, told him he preferred to keep players in their previous positions rather than move them around. Starks started at right tackle in 2005 and 2006 before moving to left tackle, where he started the past two seasons.
