The Steelers No Longer Have Max Starks As A Security Blanket

After tearing his ACL in the loss to the Denver Broncos in the 2011 playoffs, Max Starks came back and played every snap for the Steelers at left tackle in 2012. Even though Starks has been a more than solid tackle for the Steelers in his career, the team decided that it would move on …
