by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Packers re-signed running back James Starks to a two-year deal, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Starks had drawn interest from three other teams, but opted to stay in Green Bay as a complement to Eddie Lacy.

Starks averaged a career-high 5.5 yards per carry last season, gaining 493 yards. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Report: James Starks closing in on two-year deal with Green Bay
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Packers are interested in bringing back free agent running back James Starks, according to ESPN. Both sides appear to be closing in on a two-year deal.

Starks rushed for 493 yards with three rushing touchdowns while averaging 5.5 yards per carry last season. He also had 10 receptions, including one for a touchdown. He'll wind up in a crowded backfield with Eddie Lacy, DuJuan Harris and Johnathan Franklin.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Free agent running back James Starks will visit the Steelers on Monday, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Starks averaged a career-high 5.5 yards per carry with the Packers last season.

In Pittsburgh, he'd back up second-year back Le'Veon Bell.

James Starks primed to bust out
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

When it comes to running backs -- as Senior Fantasy Writer Dave Richard preaches – it’s all about touches. That's why it's exciting to think about James Starks in 2014.

The Packers would love him back, but they'll get outbid by needier teams. Potential landing spots include the Giants, Browns and Titans, assuming Chris Johnson is released. New York makes sense as Starks hails from Niagara Falls, played college ball at Buffalo and is familiar with new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo from their time in Green Bay.

Even in a timeshare, Starks would draw far more than the 89 carries he had last year.

Starks averaged a career-high 5.5 yards per carry and ranked seventh with 0.46 Fantasy points per opportunity -- the number of points per carries and pass routes run, per Pro Football Focus. He forced 22 missed tackles on 99 touches, the fourth-best rate among RBs with fewer than 100 touches.

Starks turns 28 this month but has little tread on his tires. He showed a burst last season that reminded us of the back who ran for 415 yards in Green Bay's four-game run to the Super Bowl title.

“James Starks is definitely someone I look at as a starter and the ability to run as many times in a football game as needed,” coach Mike McCarthy said after Starks totaled 168 yards from scrimmage Week 2 vs. Washington.

Report: Packers interested in bringing back James Starks
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

It appears the Packers are interested in re-signing impending free agent James Starks, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. However, Green Bay could easily be outbid for Starks, who at age 27 is coming off his best season.

Starks averaged 5.5 yards per carry and scored four touchdowns on 99 touches. If the Packers retain him, Starks would again find himself in a crowded backfield with Eddie Lacy, DuJuan Harris and Johnathan Franklin.
