Chargers haven’t reached out to former Steelers OT Max Starks

The Steelers may finally be moving on from Max Starks this year, so where might Starks move on to?

The Steelers didn't want Max Starks. They let him walk in free agency, much like they have in other years. This is said to be the year the Steelers cut ties with the veteran left tackle, and those ties won't be stitched together later.

Starks was signed after the Jonathan Scott Experiment was mercifully declared over, four games into the 2011 season. He was signed again during training camp last year, this time coming off of a torn ACL, and started 16 straight games - making him the only Steelers offensive linemen to do that in 2012 aside from Ramon Foster.

So as is the norm for Starks in May, he's unsigned.

San Diego Union Tribune reporter Kevin Acee wrote this morning that despite speculation the Chargers may make a run at Starks, the team hasn't reached out to him.

SB Nation's Cowboys site, Blogging the Boys, asked Behind The Steel Curtain via Twitter earlier today: "What's left in Max Starks' tank? Anything?"

Judging by his most recent two seasons, Starks excels in bailing out a team that didn't plan properly for its tackle positions. Maybe that's Dallas, who's still dealing with the aftermath of the Doug Free Contract Disaster. The Ravens just signed OT Bryant McKinnie to a two-year deal, and they didn't play him for the middle stretch of last year. That's how thin (pun intended) the tackle market is.

Whether that's Dallas or Pittsburgh or San Diego (after a 180 on their current attitude), Starks will continue to wait.

So it's like a normal May for him.
