From Adam Schefter of ESPN:
Packers now expected to bring back RB James Starks on a two-year deal, per source; deal considered imminent.

Financial details have not yet been disclosed.
Starks was reported to be taking a visit to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, but the Packers apparently didn't allow him to get that far.
With Starks coming back to Green Bay, the Packers have a deep backfield. Reigning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Eddie Lacy leads a pack that also includes Johanthan Franklin, DuJuan Harris and the recently signed Michael Hill.
The question now is, can the Packers afford to keep up to four tailbacks on their 53-man roster?
Rarely do things go as planned, however. The Packers find themselves in good situation with several running backs, all with NFL experience, and that's before adding any reinforcements during the NFL Draft.
Starks averaged a career-high 5.5 yards per carry last season, carrying the ball 89 times for 493 yards and three touchdowns, another touchdown through the air, while playing in 13 games.
