According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Steelers aren’t expected to re-sign veteran nose tackle Casey Hampton. Hampton will turn 36 years-old next September.  It really doesn’t make sense for the Steelers to keep him around.  I’ts time to let the younger guys step up.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();

  • I for one feel the Steelers should give Casey a one year contract for the league minimum. Do people forget? Casey came off ACL surgery as well. He was performing at a high level towards the end of the season. I would like to see Steve McLendon move to one of the end positions because Ziggy Hood and Cameron Heyward are not living up to expectations. Also, I feel the Steelers are gong to let Brett Keisel go. Depending on what the Steelers do leading up to the draft, I like John Jenkins DT Georgia. But I love Alec Ogletree ILB Georgia. The Steelers should concentrate on these positions in the first two rounds, but should also consider about corner.
  • I believe the time has come to draft "The Next Casey" with their number one draft pick in the 2013 draft.

    I believe they will.
