The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette doesn't "think" the Steelers are interested in re-signing free agent NT Casey Hampton.
Hampton, 36 in September, hasn't drawn an ounce of interest in free agency. The Steelers locked up Steve McLendon to a three-year, $7.25 million last month to be Hampton's replacement. The 12-year veteran may have to wait for an injury to find a job, or he could end up calling it a career. Wed, May 15, 2013 09:13:00 PM

The Steelers are unlikely to re-sign impending free agent NT Casey Hampton.

Hampton, 36 at the start of next season, has spent his entire 12-year career in Pittsburgh and is coming off a season in which he started all 16 games for just the third time. The Steelers have Steve McLendon and 2012 fourth-round pick Alameda Ta'amu as potential replacements in an effort to get younger up front.

Steelers NT Casey Hampton said he wants to play two more years.

Hampton will hit the open market at age 35 this spring. He's spent his entire standout 12-year career in Pittsburgh, but knows he might have to look elsewhere for work now. Steve McLendon and Alameda Ta'amu are candidates to cheaply replace him at the nose. "I want to play, and if someone wants me to play for them, I'm going to play," Hampton said. "That's just the way it is."

Steelers NT Casey Hampton (ACL surgery) has been activated from camp/PUP.

He can begin participating in drills immediately, although the NFL's new CBA has a three-day no contact rule for guys just activated from "lists" or signed. Hampton is 35 years old, and it's fair to wonder whether he'll be as effective after the reconstructive knee surgery. We still like Pittsburgh to be among the league's top run-defending teams. They always are.

Steelers NT Casey Hampton (ACL surgery) is likely entering his final year with the team.

Hampton will be 35 next month and is in the final year of his contract. His knee is also no lock to be ready for Week 1. The Steelers have protected themselves at the nose tackle spot by developing Steve McLendon and drafting Alameda Ta'amu.

There is no definitive target date for NT Casey Hampton (ACL surgery) to begin practicing.

Hampton is only six months removed from surgery and on the active/PUP list. The timetable for interior linemen is certainly shorter than for skill players, but this figures to be a race to get ready for Week 1. Hampton is also entering his age-35 season and has 157 games of wear on his resume.

Despite tearing his left ACL in January, Steelers NT Casey Hampton is confident he'll be ready for Week 1.

He had surgery on January 27 after tearing the ligament on January 8. Asked whether he might open the season on PUP, Hampton replied, "Nah, I can't see that happening. I feel like I'm ready to go." The Steelers protected themselves by using a fourth-round pick on 350-pound NT Alameda Ta'amu out of Washington.

Speaking at the owners meetings Tuesday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin conceded NT Casey Hampton (ACL surgery) is a candidate to begin the year on the PUP list.

Tomlin said Scott McLendon and Ziggy Hood will both be considered as fill-ins if Hampton isn't ready for Week 1. McLendon is the favorite after holding his own in the role down the stretch last season.

Steelers NT Casey Hampton has restructured his contract.

There was no way the Steelers could pay Hampton $4.89 million and have him count $8.1 million against the 2012 cap. He'll be 35 in September and is coming off ACL surgery. Hampton has agreed to reduce his base salary to $2.8 million and eliminate his workout bonus, reducing his cap hit by $3.09 million.
Thu, Mar 15, 2012 08:23:00 AM

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert was "emphatic" Thursday that NT Casey Hampton (ACL surgery) will be on the 53-man roster in 2012.

Hampton is due a $4.89 million base salary and counts $8.1 million against the salary cap, but the Steelers firmly believe nose tackles recover better from ACL surgeries than skill-position players. That's undoubtedly true, but Hampton is no lock to turn in a 16-game season after tearing the ligament in early January. He's a candidate to open the year on PUP.
Thu, Feb 23, 2012 02:03:00 PM

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette puts the odds of NT Casey Hampton (ACL surgery) and James Farrior returning at roughly 50 percent each.

Whether or not Hampton takes a pay cut to return, the Steelers are in need of a nose tackle with Chris Hoke hanging up the spikes. The team has had internal discussions about moving disappointing LE Ziggy Hood to the nose this offseason. The good news is undersized Steve McLendon played well as a fill-in down the stretch.
Tue, Feb 14, 2012 04:15:00 PM

Steelers NT Casey Hampton (ACL surgery) told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he wants to play in 2012.

Hampton isn't going to see his $4.89 million salary ($8.1 million against the cap), but the Post-Gazette suggests he could restructure to return to the Steelers. Hampton will turn 35 just before the start of the season.
Fri, Jan 27, 2012 10:49:00 AM

Steelers NT Casey Hampton will undergo surgery to repair his torn left ACL on Friday.

Hampton initially hoped to heal the ACL with "rest and rehab," but doctors apparently informed him a reconstruction was required. It's the third ACL surgery of Hampton's 11-year career, and will almost certainly cost him several games to open the 2012 season. The operation also makes it more likely that Hampton will be released. The 34-year-old's cap number is $8.1 million.
Thu, Jan 26, 2012 12:36:00 PM

Steelers NT Casey Hampton has an $8.1 million salary cap number for 2012.

ESPN's Adam Schefter expects that to "grab (the) attention" of a Steelers team projected to be $23 million over the 2012 cap. Attempting to recover from an ACL injury through rest and rehab, Hampton will almost certainly be released if he isn't amenable to a huge pay-cut entering his age-35 campaign.

Steelers NT Casey Hampton is not scheduled to undergo surgery for the ACL injury suffered in last week's game.

Hampton's ACL must not be fully torn. He's going to try to repair the injury through rest and rehab, though surgery may become an option down the line. It's a key factor in Hampton's chances of returning to the Steelers at $4.89 million in his age-35 season.
