They need a TE other than Miller who can block and can help the O-Line.

I think it's time to give an old friend a call... Max Starks! Couldn't hurt to at least have the insurance and he's always played pretty well for us. Probably helps that he's buddies with Roethlisberger so there's that extra incentive for him to play his ass off.

I agree

Rooneys need to get on Tomlin/Haley's ass to swallow their pride, stubbornness and arrogance, admit their lack of judgement of OL talent and bring back Max!

The Steelers placed tackle Levi Brown on injured reserve on Tuesday, which means the Cardinals will receive no compensation in the trade that sent Brown to Pittsburgh.

The trade involved draft picks conditional on Brown’s health and presence on the Steelers roster.

Brown suffered a triceps injury last Sunday while warming up to play his first game for the Steelers.

According to NFL rules, when a team trades a player who spent the previous year on injured reserve, as Brown did, the player must be on his new team’s active roster for five weeks.

Brown didn’t meet those terms so the Steelers don’t owe the Cardinals the conditional pick.

The Cardinals did, however, take the first step in shedding themselves of Brown’s contract, which they had planned to do after the season.

To make the trade work, the Cardinals restructured Brown’s contract, paying him $3.085 million in signing bonus. The Cardinals lowered Brown’s salary cap number for 2013 by almost $3 million.

They will, however, take a $6.5 million cap charge for Brown in 2014. But they won’t owe him any more cash.

Brown was due to make $6 million next season.

so despite hearing absolutely nothing from the steelers, max starks is staying in shape... round.

It's obligatory to mention the current status of former Steelers offensive tackle Max Starks any time a Steelers offensive linemen will be out for a signifcant period of time.
According to CBS Pittsburgh, Starks hasn't heard from the Steelers.

“They drafted two guys pretty high,” Starks said on The Fan Morning Show. “They don’t see me as an option for the future.”

Starks also mentioned he feels confident Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger put in a good word for him, but acknowledged the decision is not held by either himself or the team's franchise quarterback.

Starks has been released by both San Diego and St. Louis this season, and said he expects to get a call from another team at some point this year.

The Steelers placed Levi Brown on injured-reserve this week, likely ensuring second-year utility lineman Kelvin Beachum will remain the team's starting left tackle. Mike Adams was benched and deactivated after a rough performance through the first four games this season.

Starks has bailed the Steelers out previously - in each of the last two seasons, in fact. He was signed four games into the 2011 season, shoring up a rocky spot at left tackle, and was brought in at the end of training camp in 2012, starting all 16 games last year.

The Steelers appear to be holding firm, not dipping back into the old habit of running to Starks each time a left tackle experiment fails.

But the season is still young. Starks realizes that, and is staying in shape, in case history repeats itself.
