Reaction: Packers re-sign James Starks

As you all know by now, the Packers re-signed RB James Starks on Monday to a two-year deal, which really surprised me. I mean, I knew they were remaining in contact with him, but with the all of the other teams showing interest (most notably the Steelers) I just assumed that #44 would get more money elsewhere. Well, apparently that wasn't the case. Probably a negative thing for him, but an overall positive for the Packers. Now when/if Lacy gets hurt, they'll have a solid backup there to fill in, which is something that we really can't undermine the importance of.

Agree. A good move for the Packers to keep him for depth, but he's part of a crowded backfield behind Lacy.

I too am happy to see him return. He was a heck of a change-up from Eddie Lacy last year, and given the Packers track record of injuries it's hard to imagine having too many capable running backs heading into training camp.
