2013 NFL free agents: Arizona Cardinals in the running for OT Max Starks

New, comments

He could add yet another quality veteran for depth on the team.

While the Arizona Cardinals seem content with the offensive tackles they have in Levi Brown, Nate Potter and Bobby Massie, that doesn't mean that they are not looking to add a piece. In fact, even though Ken Whisenhunt is no longer around, we might be seeing another former Pittsburgh Steelers player join Arizona.

Offensive tackle Max Starks was in town recently to take a physical with the team. No deal has happened yet, but Ken Somer tweeted that Arizona is one of "several teams" he is considering.

Starks has connections with the coaching staff. Having played in Pittsburgh, he was coached by Bruce Arians and Larry Zierlein when they were both respectively offensive coordinator and offensive line coach.

Starks would not likely be a starter right away, but he would be quality depth, much like the team has been able to acquire at other positions like the defensive line and at cornerback. They have several players currently as reserves that have been capable starters.

Starks could potentially come in handy because Levi Brown is still not quite all the way back from his triceps injury. He is expected to be ready for training camp, but is he isn't, it certainly would not hurt to have Starks around.
