Steelers Sign Max Starks, Release Chris Scott
The Steelers re-signed tackle Max Starks today to the active roster and released 2010 5th round draft pick Chris Scott to make room for him on the 53 man roster. Starks was originally drafted by the Steelers in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft and started 68 games for the Steelers over a seven year span. Starks suffered a season-ending neck injury last season that cost him most of the year. He was released prior to the start of training camp this year with two years remaining on his contract. The Steelers release of Scott means that they have given up on the former Tennessee product. Scott spent most of his rookie season on PUP after fracturing his foot last summer. Scott was signed off of PUP last year to take the place of Starks after he was placed on injured reserve.
