Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette doesn’t believe the Steelers would be interested in resigning free agent nose tackle Casey Hampton even if he’s not ready to retire yet. Hampton will be turning 36 years-old in early September, it doesn’t make sense for the Steelers to bring him back.  It’s time to reload and move on.  They’ll be just fine without him.   Need NFL Tickets? The post Steelers likely won’t re-sign Casey Hampton appeared first on Pro Football Zone.

  • I am more confident with Casey Hampton at NT than anyone else on the roster. Hampton is proven and no one else is! People were excited about McLendon because he had a strong training camp, but he still got beat out by Hampton. That is the same Hampton that just came off an ACL injury!
  • Yea, I tend to agree. I think McLendon was given a chance to win the starting job last season but couldn't despite Hampton's early struggles. He seems to fit the Chris Hoke back-up role more than an every down NT; he plays the pass much better than the run.

    Maybe he ends up replacing Hood who is slated to be a FA in 2013?
