Former Steelers T Max Starks Signs With Chargers

According to Josina Anderson of ESPN on Twitter, former Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Max Starks has a agreed to terms with the San Diego Chargers on Tuesday.

Starks, who was originally drafted by the Steelers in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft, played every snap at left tackle last season after tearing up his knee in the 2011 AFC Wild Card Game against the Denver Broncos.

At the end of the 2012 season, Starks said that he was open to returning to Pittsburgh in 2013, but only if given an opportunity to start. He has maintained that stance for all of the off-season and had visits with both the Chargers and the Arizona Cardinals over the course of the last few weeks.

The Steelers reportedly reached out to Starks a few weeks ago, but wound up signing free agent tackle Guy Whimper, formerly of the Jacksonville Jaguars, instead.

The Steelers opened up their first OTA session of the 2013 season on Tuesday with Marcus Gilbert manning the left tackle spot and Mike Adams playing the right tackle spot.

Starks has since posted the news on his Twitter account.
