In July, the Vikings gave up on a left tackle who had weight and conditioning issues. Now, the Vikings are taking a look at a left tackle who has weight and conditioning issues.
Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com reports that the Vikings will visit with free-agent Max Starks, who was dumped earlier this year by the Steelers. Starks was attempting to recover from a neck injury that ended his 2010 season prematurely.
The Vikings cut Bryant McKinnie days after he showed up pushing four bills. He has since landed with the Ravens, and he has started all three games.
The Vikings replaced him with Charlie Johnson, who has struggled at times.
Frankly, we’re not sure that beefing up the tackle position will help the Vikings not blow double-digit leads. But it can’t hurt.
