Description: The Chargers have signed tackle Max Starks to a one-year deal.
Insight: Starks can't help but make the San Diego offensive line better. That in turn should help quarterback Philip Rivers stay upright more often, a necessary ingredient to improving the Chargers offense.

Description: The Steelers signed Starks to a four-year contract extension.
Insight: Starks did not open 2008 as the Steelers' starter but an injury to Marvel Smith put him at left tackle at midseason. He did not relinquish spot. Stability at left tackle will help the Steeler offense roll in 2009. (SportsBuff.com)
