    Starks signs...

    Starks signs $1.85 million deal with Steelers
    April 27, 2007

    PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Max Starks signed his tender offer of $1.85 million for the 2007 season Friday, the last day the he could do so.

    The Steelers have not negotiated with Starks on an extension past 2007, a sign they will allow him to become an unrestricted free agent next year. By tendering an offer to the 6-foot-8, 340-pound Starks, the Steelers forced any team that wanted to sign the offensive lineman this year to give up a first-round draft pick.

    Starks, a former star at Florida, was a third-round draft pick by Pittsburgh in 2004 and started every game during their Super Bowl-winning season in 2005. He started their first 14 games last season, but injured his eight knee and was replaced for the final two games by rookie Willie Colon.

    While Colon is expected to push Starks during training camp, it appears likely Starks will start for one more season before the Steelers switch to Colon or another player in 2008.

    Starks, the son of former NFL star lineman Ross Browner, has a solid season in 2005 but the Steelers felt he had a falloff last season -- especially against pass rushers with speed.

    If it wasn't for another team having to give up a first round pick, Starks probably would have been gone. Guess this is for thebetter for this season, cause with the Faneca situation, our OL is already slim. I bet we draft a couple of OL tomorrow.

    This is a good move by the Steelers, it virtually ensures that Max will stay with us in 2007. If he plays well then we can try to sign him to a big deal before he hits FA next year,if he sux then we can let him go.
