Rams Sign Former Steelers T Max Starks
Former Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Max Starks now has a new home as he signed a one-year deal Wednesday with the St. Louis Rams.
Starks, who signed a one-year, $2 million deal in May with the San Diego Chargers in May, was later released in August after not playing well during the preseason.
The Rams lost starting right tackle Rodger Saffold to knee injury this past week and they claimed free agent tackle Mike Person off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks on Monday. Starks was likely added on Wednesday as depth.
According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Joe Barksdale is expected to start at right tackle Sunday when the Rams play the Dallas Cowboys.
Starks, who was originally drafted by the Steelers in the third-round of the 2004 NFL Draft, started all 16 games for the black and gold last season.
