It’s probably not the way Max Starks wanted to do it, but the Steelers tackle, who had the franchise tag put on him Thursday, accepted the teams franchise tender of $8.451 million for the 2009 season. What it does do though is give the two sides a shot to start talking about a long-term contract.
The Steelers have until July 15th to reach agreement on a deal with Starks, or he’ll have to play the 2009 season with the one-year deal worth $8.45 million. The good news about Starks accepting the deal with the Steelers is that he can no longer negotiate with other NFL teams about a possible contract.
