Pittsburgh (KDKA)- The Pittsburgh Steelers are in need of an offensive tackle but it won’t be Flozell Adams.

There’s a real simple reason for that: Adams wants too much money.

Adams, who was due to make $5 million this season before being released by the Steelers, is reportedly unwilling to play for anything less.

Aside from the price tag, the Steelers just don’t have the room under the salary cap to sign him. It’s believed the Steelers have less than a million under the cap to spend.

Unless the Steelers are willing to get very creative with the cap and Adams drops his demands, “The Hotel” isn’t coming back to Pittsburgh.

Another option at tackle appears to be ready to sign a deal.

KDKA-TV Sports believes that former Steeler tackle Max Starks is close to signing a contract with the Minnesota Vikings.

Starks worked out for the Vikings on Monday.
