Now that the Packers’ top free agents are accounted for, some of their other players on the market are getting attention.

An NFL source said running back James Starks will visit the Pittsburgh Steelers next week. Starks has had serious durability issues in his NFL career – he’s missed 29 of 64 games because of injuries – but played well last season as the backup for Eddie Lacy. In 13 games Starks averaged 5.5 yards on 89 carries.

The Packers still are trying to re-sign Starks as well.

Among the Packers other remaining free agents are backup quarterback Matt Flynn, receiver James Jones and defensive lineman Ryan Pickett.
