Steelers Reportedly Interesting In Re-Signing Flozell Adams, But Not Max Starks

The Post-Gazette reports that the Steelers are interested in having Flozell Adams, who was released for salary reasons earlier this week. They are not, however, interested in Max Starks.

It appears the team has little interest in re-signing Starks, who had been their starting left tackle, because he is overweight and out of shape, a source told the Post-Gazette.

Ouch. Ed Bouchette wrote a few days ago that Starks currently weighs nearly 400 pounds, and it appears he wasn't kidding.

If they're able to get Adams back at a lower price, the Steelers would start him at right tackle and put Willie Colon at right guard. Ramon Foster and Doug Legursky are currently in competition at right guard. 

The news that the Steelers want Adams back comes as no surprise - they didn't release him because they dislike him, but rather because the salary cap is forcing them to move lots of money around.
