Report: Two Other Teams Plus Packers Interested In Free Agent RB James Starks

Green Bay Packers unrestricted free agent running back James Starks is expected to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, but he might have a few other teams interested in talking to him before he signs a deal.

According to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, two teams in addition to the Steelers are interested in Starks and a source has also told him that the Packers are also in the mix to re-sign him.

The Steelers currently have three other running backs under contract for the 2014 season other than starter Le’Veon Bell, but all three have yet to play a down in the NFL.

The Steelers reportedly wanted to re-sign unrestricted free agent Jonathan Dwyer this offseason, but the former sixth-round draft pick decided to sign a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals instead.

In four seasons with the Packers, Starks rushed for 1,427 yards and five touchdowns on 322 regular season carries. He was originally drafted by the Packers in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Buffalo.

    Can the Steelers afford Beanie Wells?


    Well if he won’t sign for pennies then he isn’t signing here. The Steelers might want to bite the bullet and overpay to get Worilds deal done. For the sake of cap space.

    The Steelers put a franchise tag on a guy who has good production for half a season in his career…overpay for a S that has had 1 decent year in a 5 year career, signs another FA NT that lost his job to someone no one had ever heard of, resigns 3 guys: Will Allen who is in his 30’s, Cody Wallace whose career has been garbage and Guy Whimper who is considered one of the worst OL in football yet we cannot find a way to resign guys who are younger and have talent and cant seem to find a dime to sign anyone in free agency who may help this team. This off season baffles me.
