One offensive tackle was out the door Tuesday, and another announced he was coming in.

The Chargers waived Kevin Haslam, a three-game starter at left tackle in 2012. On the same day, free agent Max Starks donned a Chargers avatar on his verified Twitter account and announced he was joining the team. It later confirmed his signing to a one-year deal.

The 31-year-old visited the Chargers earlier this month, as well as the Cardinals, and projects as their starting left tackle. His arrival likely pushes King Dunlap into a swing role.

Starks started 96 of 123 career games for the Steelers, including all 16 at left tackle last year. He'll serve as a stop-gap option here, as the team is expected to continue its search for a future left-tackle cornerstone in 2014.
