This was inevitable.

The NFL Network is reporting the San Diego Chargers visited with Pittsburgh free-agent left tackle Max Starks. He is the best option at the position in a weak market. Left tackle is the Chargers’ biggest need. After not addressing the area in the draft the Chargers talked to Bryant McKinnie last week. But he re-signed with Baltimore.

Starks was Pittsburgh’s starter last year. He also has a history with new San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, who was the Steelers’ offensive coordinator early in Starks’ career.

As of now, King Dunlap is set to start. He is best suited as a backup. Starks would very likely be the favorite to start if he signs with the Chargers.
