Default Starks still in Steelers' plans

Starks still in Steelers' plans
By Scott Brown
Tuesday, April 1, 2008

The Steelers remain interested in working out a long-term contract extension with offensive tackle Max Starks and will make that more of a priority after the owners meetings, director of football operations Kevin Colbert said.
The Steelers used the transition tag on Starks in February before he became an unrestricted free agent. The tag comes with a one-year tender offer that Starks can sign at any time, one that would pay him almost $6.9 million next season.

Starks said recently that negotiations on a long-term deal between his agents and the Steelers were at a standstill.

Colbert said he and coach Mike Tomlin have been busy the past couple of weeks attending workouts for draft-eligible players, which is why the Steelers haven't been able to devote more time toward locking up Starks beyond the 2008 season.

"We're still trying to work out something long-term," Colbert said.
Pick six

The Steelers were not given any compensatory picks in the NFL Draft, which will be held at the end of the month.

Compensatory picks are awarded based on free agents who were lost the previous year.

Joey Porter signed with the Dolphins last March after a decorated career in Pittsburgh, but the Steelers released the outside linebacker, which is why they didn't receive any compensation for losing him.

The Steelers have six picks in this year's draft.

Their seventh-round pick went to the Falcons as part of the trade that brought kick return specialist Allen Rossum to the Steelers last September.

Game(s) on

The NFL announced the four games that will be televised nationally during the first week of the regular season, none of which involves the Steelers.

The Washington Redskins will visit the New York Giants for a 7 p.m. game (NBC) on Thursday, Sept. 4, and the Indianapolis Colts will host the Chicago Bears for an 8:15 p.m. contest (NBC) on Sept. 7.

The Monday matchups Sept. 8 will be the Minnesota Vikings at the Green Bay Packers at 7 p.m. and the Denver Broncos at the Oakland Raiders at 10:15 p.m. Both games will be televised by ESPN.
