    Max Starks Visits Steelers...10/5 Update, Starks signs, Chris Scott released

    http://twitter.com/#!/gerrydulac

    Max Starks visited #steelers tonite and it looks as though he will be signed. Someone will be waived.


    The Steelers visited with former offensive tackle Max Starks tonight and are close to re-signing him to help their injury-plagued offensive line.


    Starks, who was released before the start of training camp, was at the team's South Side facility tonight and will likely be signed to the 53-man roster, a team source told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.


    The Steelers will have to release a player to make room for Starks, who had been a full-time starter since the middle of the 2009 season.


    Starks missed the second half of last season with a neck injury that kept him from working out during the offseason. That caused him to be overweight and out of shape and forced the Steelers to release him.

    Starks will be an improvement from El Matador, Jonathan Scott, but he wasn't the greatest either. But hopefully he can help the team. If he signs, that will mean 3 out of 5 starters will be from the University of Florida.

    I think Starks could have been an Elite LT. He just was too streaky and/or lazy. He could block Jared Allen all day for Ben, but some back-up for the Browns gets 4 sacks against him. Hopefully, cutting him made him realize he has to work each and every week, not just the big name weeks. He will be an improvement day 1. Either at LT or RT and Gilbert to LT (which is what I prefer).

    Exactly, you have to beat this team over the head before they realize they should have called up Starks weeks ago. You're QB nearly gets killed for the first month of the season before you realize you need some help. It's not like Scott was an unknown commodity and you wanted to see if he could the job. Starks should have been on the roster after the 2nd game atleast.

    From what I've heard he's worked hard to get his weight back down and at this point a 75% Max Starks is better than a 110% Jonathan Scott or Trai Essex.

    I feel the same way. We are not the only team with huge holes on the O line. The Jets & Eagles are very bad. Hopefully he realized that he might play somewhere and stayed in shape.
