The Steelers have signed Max Starks to a one year deal according to Ed Bouchette.  Starks has been rehabbing his surgically repaired knee this summer.  He had yet to sign with a team due to his health. 

Starks will come in and compete with Mike Adams for the Left Tackle position.  He will provide good offensive line depth as he has played and won a Super Bowl as both a left and right tackle.  At the very least he takes away Jonathan Scott’s waste of space being on this roster. 

I like the idea of Starks coming in and pushing Adams.  I hope this makes Adams work and he wins the job.  Unless Adams can not hack it he should get this job.  I am never for pushing the future back.  I am for making progress forward.  Starks should be the back up and he will be a good one for us to have.   He will also be a good leader in the locker room.

Welcome back Max.
