Chargers sign left tackle Max Starks to one-year deal
Left tackle Max Starks, who spent his first nine seasons in Pittsburgh, signed a one-year deal with the San Diego Chargers. Terms were not disclosed. Starks is expected to start and protect quarterback Philip Rivers' blind side.
The Chargers’ search for a left tackle is over, at least for 2013.
San Diego signed former Steeler Max Starks to a one-year deal, and he’s expected to win the starting job over King Dunlap. D.J. Fluker, the 11th overall pick in the draft, figures to start at right tackle on what should be a much-improved line.
Pittsburgh opened OTAs on Tuesday with Marcus Gilbert at left tackle.
Starks, 31, who started all 16 games last season, spent his first nine seasons in Pittsburgh. He said a classy goodbye on Twitter.
