The Green Bay Packers have re-signed free agent running back James Starks.

Starks, 28, will get a two-year deal according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He cancelled a visit to Pittsburgh.

While Starks made a few stops he could not land a bigger role than the one he had last season operating at Eddie Lacy’s backup. He had a 5.5 yard per carry last season on 89 carries for a total of 493 yards and three touchdowns.

It is good news for the Packers.
