Starks a Reliable Veteran Backup for Packers
Starks will be an interesting test case for running backs this offseason. He turned 30 in February, which is often an age when players at his position start to see their skills decline because of all the abuse they took in their 20s.
However, the Packers never relied on Starks as their primary running back. He has only started nine games since 2010, but his production has been solid with 2,361 yards and nine touchdowns on 555 carries.
In addition to his limited workload as a runner, Pro Football Focus noted late last season that Starks was one of the NFL's most prolific pass-catchers on screen passes:

While he'll never be a superstar in the league, Starks has proven himself a capable backup, with enough versatility to fit back in nicely with Green Bay's offense.
