    The Steelers didn’t franchise Starks, they put the transition tag on him. Pretty much, it gives them 7 days to match any offer he gets, but they get no compensation if he leaves.

    Good point!  You’re right.  But this could hurt them in the long run if another team steps up with an offer considering they can use the poison pill clause in any contract now.  This one could get interesting.

    Agreed.Especially with the Steelers all but saying that if Faneca leaves, Starks is going to get major time. They better hope they have a good back-up plan.
