Starks still a possibility for Chargers

Left tackle Max Starks isn’t a member of the Chargers yet, but he still could be.

According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, Starks concluded a recent visit to the team without agreeing to terms.  But he remains in the mix.

If Starks signs with the Chargers, he likely becomes the starting left tackle, supplanting former Eagles tackle King Dunlap.

Starks, a nine-year veteran, has spent his entire career with the Steelers.  He recently said that, in the wake of Pittsburgh’s decision to sign Guy Whimper, it’s likely time to move on.

    The rest of the AFC West wants you to go with Dunlap.

    Sign him Chargers, PLEASE. Fans aren’t confident in King Dunlap or anyone else at LT on the team at the moment.

    Starks is too good to play LT for Whiner Rivers. Go back to PIT where you belong big Max, I’m sure you’ll once again be called upon to block for a real QB.

    Whimper is 30 and Starks is 31. Is Whimper really better than Starks? The team has the two guys they want to start. It appears the Steelers are forcing Starks out. But why?

    Another Steeler forced out in the cold, hat in hand. Smh.

    Starks wants an opportunity to start and I think the Steelers are wanting to go with a younger lineup after drafting two linemen in early rounds the last few years. I personally want Starks back and then the two young guys can learn from him, plenty of time. Starks did a great job last year. I think the Steelers signed Whimper as a back up at right tackle. Which is the position he played with the jags. Bring Starks back!!
