Local boys James Starks and J.C. Tretter might not play together for the Green Bay Packers after all.
NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport tweeted that the Packers are shopping Starks, a fourth-year running back from Niagara Falls and the University at Buffalo.

Starks, a sixth-round pick in 2010, helped the Packers win the Super Bowl that year. He played only three regular-season games as a rookie but started all four of their postseason games, rushing for 315 yards and a touchdown.
The Packers drafted a pair of running backs this week. They took Alabama star Eddie Lacy in the second round and UCLA's Jonathan Franklin in the fourth round.
The Packers drafted Tretter, an offensive lineman from Akron, in the fourth round today, three slots ahead of Franklin.
