I think Starks is an average RT and not much worth more than $2.5-3mil per season.

You can bet he will be auditioning for his free agent $$$ this weekend.

He's always, IMO, looked better at LT for whatever reason. I hope he performs well, as it's best for the team. Plus, if he plays well but only here and there, maybe we can resign him next year for a reasonable price. Who else is going to pay a backup starter money?

Yep. he did. Don't know why. I think he'll be ok. Matter of fact, maybe he will be better than Smith?

Seems like he always said he liked the left side better - but the coaches never wanted to play him there. Oh well, he's starting at LT on Sunday, and I hope he brings his A-game! Cuz he's making way too much dang money to play like an idiot, and we've got a $100 Million quarterback to protect.

I agree with an earlier post on Starks meaning we'll focus on the rushing attack. MeMo could have a huge day.

I think Starks will play well, because he needs to show up in order to cash in next year. That and its just the Bengals we are playing.

Then, he will be signed to a 5 year deal to play LT and get cut after 2 because he is getting Ben killed. I think he stands to cash in like the guy across from him did on a good season.....Bengals free agent pickup Antwan Odom (1sack this season)

I honestly hope we win the game and Starks gives up a couple sacks so there are no long term deals given to a veteran backup tackle based on a good game against the Bengals great Antwan Odom.

Actually, I hope he has a good game so the bengals pick him up next season

The way I see it, the steelers have made no intention in resigning starks. and with so many important deals to be done next year I'd say he is at the bottom of their list

Perfect situation for the bungles to pick him up
