Tom Pelissero of AM 1500 in Minneapolis is reporting the Vikings brought in Former Steelers OT Max Starks for a workout Monday. 

Starks is a hot name in Pittsburgh after Colts DEs Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis had their way with a variety of tackle combinations in the Steelers 23-20 (OT) win Sunday night. 

If any team is struggling more with protection than Pittsburgh, it's Minnesota. The Vikings are coming off their third consecutive loss - all three where they held double-digit leads at halftime before their offense self-destructed. The latest, a 26-23 overtime loss to Detroit, where LT Charlie Johnson and RT Phil Loadholt struggled greatly with the Lions edge rushers. 

Starks, a third-round pick of the Steelers in 2004, is the only player in NFL history to start at left and right tackle on Super Bowl championship teams. Both came with Pittsburgh. 

Starks was cut this preseason by the Steelers, one season after he was put on injured-reserve with a neck injury.
