Starks got $160,000 from Chargers


While we wait for more cuts to come in, here’s the post script on tackle Max Starks‘ short stay in San Diego.

Signed on May 22, Starks received a $160,000 signing bonus.

Cut on August 30, Starks keeps every penny of it, and he can sign elsewhere with no offset.

The Chargers avoided a $1 million base salary by cutting Starks. ┬áThe bigger issue was that Starks wasn’t getting it done.

Maybe now he can go back to Pittsburgh, which has gotten accustomed in recent years to tackles who can’t get it done.

    starks got lit up in the niners game, grant it our second and third stringers could be starters in 2/3 of the league but still this guy looked VERY SLOW.

    Starks is always 20 lbs overweight (or more) every year until he realizes he’s about to be out of football. He’ll be in enough shape by week 4 to replace Adams in Pittsburgh like every other season.
