ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Monday night the Packers and free agent running back James Starks are close to agreeing on a deal that would keep the running back in Green Bay. He was scheduled to meet with the Steelers Tuesday.

According to Schefter, it appears that meeting will be cancelled. The Steelers also reportedly have ex-Saints wide receiver coming to visit Tuesday. The Steelers have $2.4 million in cap room after signing Guy Whimper to a one-year deal Monday.

A report surfaced Monday the Steelers were in the running for Raiders WR James Jones - another Packers player from 2013. The Steelers are thin at wide receiver and running back, and appear no closer Monday night to addressing either of those needs.

Running backs of good quality are still on the market, and that isn't as much a concern, considering the Steelers have Le'Veon Bell, a 300-plus three-down running back. But the receivers market is getting thin.
