They Green Bay Packers are expected to bring back running back James Starks on a two-year deal, with a deal considered imminent, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Injured for most of his first three seasons, Starks stayed relatively healthy last season, missing only three games.
Serving a complementary role to Eddie Lacy, Starks averaged a career-high 5.5 yards per carry and had one 100-yard rushing game, in Week 2 against the Redskins.
While durability remains an issue, he could flourish in a part-time role.
