The Pittsburgh Steelers recently traded for tackle Levi Brown. Brown was brought in from the Arizona Cardinals. The Steelers felt that maybe Brown could bring some improvement to an offensive line that’s look  bad all season. Brown suffered a pectoral injury during warm-ups on Sunday before the Steelers took on the Jets. Reported on Tuesday, Brown was place on injury reserve with a season-ending injury. Brown played a total of zero games for the Steelers as the offensive line’s issues remain unsolved. What’s the move now for the Steelers? Should they just work with what they got and hope that Ben Roethlisberger can take improvising to another level? Or should this team go out and try to find another body to replace Brown? One option that’s on the table for the Steelers is go out and pick up former Steeler, Max Starks. Starks was recently released by the St. Louis Rams to make room for linebacker, Jo-Lunn Dunbar. Starks at this point could be known to the Steelers as “ole reliable.” Starks was brought back to the Steelers last season and started all 16 games for the black and gold. Starks is a veteran tackle who’s out there on the free-agent-market and certainly has more than enough knowledge of how Pittsburgh conducts their operations. So should the team pick up their former tackle? I sound like a broken record but, why not? It’s frustrating to see Brown go down mainly because he did absolutely nothing for this team and managed to injury himself during warm-ups, thus never saw the field, ever. There’s no doubt that the Steelers’ offensive line is the weakest link on this Steelers team. In the victory over the Jets on Sunday, Kelvin Beachum played left tackle and although he did a solid job he still struggled at times. Beachum was called for holding on several occasion and lacks experience. Beachum has also played center and tight end this season, he’s a valuable player to this team but may be better suited somewhere else on the line rather than left tackle. A veteran tackle and a familiar face would benefit this struggling offensive line. Bringing in Starks wouldn’t be a bad idea. Starks is nowhere near the total solution to fixing this line but he can only help. If there’s cap space to bring in the veteran the Steelers should probably go for it. Roethlisberger and the rest of the offense need this offensive line to find improvement if they want to build off their first win of the season. So, Steelers Nation should the black and gold bring back “ole reliable?”
