    There is a chance that he could be back for 1 more year. I heard that 1. he wants to keep playing since he had a good year, and 2. He loves Pittsburgh and doesn't want to move. Could it be that he takes the league minimum to play for 1 more year?

    If the Steelers don't get a new NT through the draft, Chadman would be happy to see Hampton back for that sort of deal.

    Nobody on the current roster is of Hampton's class at his peak. Not even close.
    Vince Wilfork was better.
    I'm glad to see it TBH. I liked Hampton back in '05, '08... but as time slowly went on, it was clear that he was no longer the player he thought he was. These past two years, the only reason he continued to start/play for us is because he was a known commodity (i.e. he knew the scheme). I think young blood like McLendon, while probably not as dependable, would've injected an aspect of energy that would've been a bigger help.

    I think Hampton played this year over McClendon because McClendon had problems against the run. He's is absolutely not the player he used to be, but he is still strong against the run.

    Thank you Mr. Hampton for your years of service to the Steelers organization. Your efforts and contributions were and will always be appreciated. Saying all of that, it is time for the Steelers to move towards their future at the position, whether that be with McClendon or someone else. I think Steve could be really good as the starting NT but he will be a different style of player. He could give the team a better push in the pass rush but will not be as good against the run. That's why I think drafting an ILB early is important as they may be able to make up for some of that loss with a thumper like Minter or a ppremium athlete like Ogletree. Unless they plan on targeting a guy like John Jenkins in round 2.

    With an over-aged-over the cap 8-8 team...I would say anyone with the arrow pointing down should be a little nervous.

    As far as Hampton, his play has declined to where he is not "signficant". There really is no reason to bring him back.
    1st (T-D) Kelvin Benjamin WR

    5a Dri Archer RB
    5b Kevin Pierre-Louis LB
    6a Beau Allen NT
    6b Shaquille Richardson CB
    7th John Brown WR

    But, overall, I think Hampton had the better career...
