In our Saturday post discussing the top-ten free agents remaining on the market, we suggested free agent tackle Max Starks as a fallback option in Pittsburgh should rookie Mike Adams not prove up to the task of protecting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s blind side.
Per FOX Sports’ Len Pasquarelli, Starks “isn’t likely to return to the Steelers again.”
Pasquarelli reports that “a few teams” have stayed in contact with Starks while he rehabs a torn ACL. Starks is expected to be medically cleared in two months.
Pasquarelli doesn’t have the names of teams interested in Starks, but the 30-year-old tackle has coaching staff ties in Indianapolis (Bruce Arians) and Arizona (Russ Grimm).
The Vikings also showed interest in Starks last September.
