Report: RB James Starks agrees to re-sign with Packers
Running back James Starks has agreed to re-sign with the Green Bay Packers, reports ESPN’s Adam Caplan.
Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the deal is for $6 million over two years.
Starks was drafted by the Packers in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL draft and has spent all six years of his career in Green Bay.
The 30-year-old running back has primarily served in a backup role, starting only nine of 67 career games. In 2015 he played in 16 games and started in four amid Eddie Lacy’s struggles. He logged 601 yards with two touchdowns.
Starks set a career high for fumbles last season with five, which ultimately pushed him back out of his starter role.
He visited the New England Patriots before deciding to return to Green Bay.
