I'm pretty sure Colbert didn't have a dislike for him and we all Ben's feelings about Starks. I'm sorry but I find it hard to believe that Colbert wasn't interested in replacing Guy Whimper with Starks after San Diego cut him especially considering the affordability factor.
Starks was never a long term concern for the Steelers...the cash was paid out in one year contracts so that they didn't commit to him long term...
