The Steelers have a brand new problem on their offensive line. They need a left tackle.

Alex Marvez of reports the team surprisingly let Max Starks know Wednesday night that they are cutting him.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette mentioned via Twitter that Starks’ weight was in the high 300’s. He was coming off neck surgery. (Okay, maybe this shouldn’t have been a huge shock.)

We’ve heard the Steelers want to bring back Willie Colon, a move which will take greater importance now. Johnathan Scott could also get another look.
