The Steelers signed veteran offensive tackle Max Starks to a one-year contract.
Starks had knee surgery to repair the torn ACL in his right knee. He was injured in the AFC wild-card playoff loss at Denver but passed his physical with the Steelers this week and was re-signed.
Starks is expected to compete with rookie Mike Adams at left tackle in training camp, allowing Marcus Gilbert to remain on the right side.
Starks, 30, was limited to 19 games the past two seasons by injuries. He was released before training camp in 2011, but re-signed Oct. 5 and made 12 starts.
Starks started for the Steelers in the Super Bowl in 2005 during a stretch of five games starting all but two regular-season games.
