    I've always been a Hampton fan but I totally agree with this. You can't pay a player 8/million when he rarely even plays on 3rd down. Compound that with a player that has definitely declined in production and you have a prime cut candidate. No Hampton, no "primte cut" as in a good steak. "Prime cut" as in you can kiss your 8/million next year goodbye
    Where it gets tricky is that $8 million is the cap hit, but a significant portion of that (approximately $3 million, I think) is a prorated portion of his signing bonus. So whether he steps on the field or not, his cap hit will be at least $3 million. He would likely have to agree to an extension or reduction to return, and there are also the health issues.

    One of many complicated situations the Steelers will have to address.
    Thanks for this info. I think Casey will be back and he will make millions. Casey knows that he can't make 8 million anywhere in the league at this piont in his career so does he go somewhere else and get paid less or does he stay with his team and make less. He stays with the team because there is absolutely no reason to cut him. If we believe that he comes back from the injury, cutting him would hurt the team. Mcclendon is good but we draft a NT who splits time with Casey. I think McClendon can play both NT and DE moreso than Ziggy.
