The Green Bay Packers and running back James Starks have agreed to terms on a two-year deal worth $6 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Caplan.

Starks, 30, has been with the Packers for his entire career and was their starting running back in Super Bowl XLV.

When the Packers soured on Eddie Lacy for his poor conditioning last season, they made Starks their starter once again.

Although he set a career high with 601 yards (on a 4.1-yards-per-carry average) and scored three touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving), he fumbled his way out of the job. His five fumbles doubled his career total.
