The veteran offensive lineman didnt take getting cut for salary cap purposes personally. He knew he was expensive. He knew he was coming off a neck injury that cut short his 2010 season and he knew the Steelers made it to the Super Bowl without him. "Its not a hard decision to make when you look at it from a professional standpoint," Starks said. Neither was Starks decision to come back. The Steelers re-signed Starks to a one-year deal on Wednesday hoping the seven-year veteran can provide depth and leadership to an injury ravaged offensive line that has struggled protecting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Pittsburgh (2-2) has yet to start the same line combination in consecutive weeks heading into Sundays game against surprising Tennessee (3-1). Roethlisberger is limping around on a sprained left foot and the running game has been stuck in neutral. The quarterback, who will wear a special shoe on Sunday to protect his plant foot, had been urging Pittsburgh brass to give his good friend a call. After watching Roethlisberger get pounded for a fourth straight week in a loss to Houston, they listened. "It took a little while but we got him back and Im happy about it," Roethlisberger said. So happy he welcomed Starks to his familiar spot in an adjoining locker. Roethlisberger will gladly trade a little personal space for more time in the pocket. He could certainly use it after spending a month under siege. Even with his uncanny ability to move around in the pocket Roethlisberger has been sacked 14 times and harassed into five interceptions and four fumbles. Starks presence can only help, even if he doesnt make it onto the field for awhile. With a line starting a rookie (tackle Marcus Gilbert), a second-year centre (Maurkice Pouncey) and a revolving door at the other three spots Starks familiarity with the offence and his easy going demeanour can only help. Coach Mike Tomlin told the 29-year-old Starks he was signed because "(the team) needed leadership and experience and to fill in when needed." How soon that will be, Starks isnt sure. Wednesday was his first practice in 11 months. A herniated disc in his neck suffered againnst Cincinnati last year sent him onto injured reserve and put his career in jeopardy.dddddddddddd The Steelers forged ahead without him, the patchwork line helping the team to its third Super Bowl appearance in six seasons. Starks felt he was on his way back when the lockout happened and he wondered if hed get the chance to play again. There was a part of him that was OK if he didnt. "I had seven great years here, I got to see three great Super Bowls here, I got to participate and win two of them," he said. "I was like, anybody else would be happy with that career and ready to retire and ready to go off into the sunset but I think Ive still got a couple more useful years left in my body." The Steelers would settle for one at this point. Starks feels hes in pretty good shape, adding his neck "feels great" and thinks hes pretty light on his feet after shedding the excess pounds that piled up during the lockout. The six-foot-eight Starks feels hes around his normal playing weight of 345 lbs., even if its distributed a little differently than it was a year ago. "Its same glob of clay, its matter of how you mould it," Starks said. "Its a fun feeling." And a rare one for a line thats already lost veteran Willie Colon for the season with a torn triceps and seen guards Doug Legursky and Chris Kemoeatu and tackle Jonathan Scott all miss at least one start with an injury. "Hes got fresh legs," Kemoeatu said. "Its nice to have a healthy guy like that step in during this time of need." Starks talked to several teams and was actually in Detroit when the Steelers called. He understands his surgically repaired neck could be an issue. It might have been during camp, not anymore. He calls the lockout and getting cut "a blessing in disguise." Hes as healthy now as hes been at any time in his career. He has no ego about getting his starting spot back. Nearly a year away from the game has given him a new perspective. Asked where he sees himself fitting in and Starks just shrugs his shoulders. "Hopefully youll see me out on the field, whethers its on the sidelines or as a swing guy or in the starting role," he said. "My job is to make sure I plug in and Im ready to do whatever they need me to do." cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
