The Arizona Cardinals signed tackle Max Starks to a contract to increase their offensive line depth. The length and financial terms of the contract are unknown.
The Arizona Cardinals possessed one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL last season, and they allowed 41 sacks. According to Pro Football Focus, the Cardinals had the worst offensive line in the league.
The team elected to improve the unit by signing left tackle Jared Veldheer to a long-term deal, and Bobby Massie is expected to start at right tackle after Bradley Sowell performed dreadfully.
The Cardinals didn’t stop with the Veldheer signing though. They signed tackle Max Starks to a deal, but it is unknown how long it’s for and the financial terms have not been disclosed.
Starks will provide depth and veteran experience at tackle in Arizona. The former Steeler played in Pittsburgh for 10 years and made 96 starts. He also helped the Steelers win two Super Bowls, including one against his new team in the 2008 season.
The tackle did not receive much action in 2013. He had brief stints with the Chargers and Rams before being released in October. His signing with the Cardinals will reunite him with head coach Bruce Arians, who was his offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh.
