Two Roster Spots Could Be Up For Grabs On Defensive Line If Hampton Starts On PUP


*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***


It is no real surprise that Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Casey Hampton could possibly start the 2012 regular season on the reserve PUP list. Hampton, who just this past week said that his goal is to be ready by week one, is still not five full months removed from surgery to repair the torn ACL he suffered against the Denver Broncos in the AFC Wild Card Game. While Hampton does not need the same cutting ability that running back Rashard Mendenhall will need before he is ready to return, he could certainly benefit from the extra six weeks recovery time at the start of the season.

One of the most common things during this portion of the NFL offseason is hearing an injured player guarantee he’ll be back in time for the start of the season. Hopefully you aren’t too tired of hearing about them because we’ve got another one for you. It’s Steelers defensive tackle Casey Hampton taking his turn…

Steelers GM expects Hampton, Mendenhall to start season on PUP list

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall and nose tackle Casey Hampton reportedly will start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Both players are coming off major knee injuries and Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review he doesn't expect to have them at the start of the season. Mendenhall suffered a torn ACL in his right knee on Jan. 1 and Hampton sustained an ACL tear on Jan. 8. "You've got to remember both of those injuries happened late in the year," Colbert said. Placing them on the PUP list means that neither player would eligible to play until after the sixth game of the season. Hampton is a five-time Pro Bowl selection with 350 tackles while Mendenhall has run for at least 928 yards the past three seasons.

“Battle of the bulge”: Steelers McLendon vs Ta’amu vs Hampton


*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***


As we remember our soldiers this past Memorial Day weekend, I was thinking also about a topic to write about. I tend to do that a lot, multi tasking.  While surfing through Google (man Mr. Google is amazing isn’t he?) I came across some information and quotes on Steelers 3rd yr NT Steve McLendon. However before going any further let’s be clear, by referencing a military topic in the title of this piece, I’m not insinuating that any Steeler or NFL player on any other team should be referred to as a “soldier” or “warrior”. One of our good friends, Craig Wolfley, is very keen to that fact. His son is currently serving in the military, something he is very proud of. No sports player anywhere should be referred with those monikers. Our fighting men and women, both present and past, are the real hero’s and warriors to be proud of.
Still though when you look at the Steelers current group of nose tackles; McLendon, Hampton, and Steve McLendon ...

Hampton gives Steelers more than $3 million in cap space


*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***


When the Steelers embarked on their cap-slashing exercise earlier this year, nose tackle Casey Hampton was at the top of the list.  Unlike one of the various players who restructured contracts and ultimately gave up no money (and unlike Hines Ward who was cut without negotiation), Hampton took a significant pay cut in order to…

NT Casey Hampton Restructures Contract, Steelers Insured Against Move for Wallace

Photo

Mark March 15 as Steelers S-C Day - victory over the Salary Cap has been achieved.

After contract restructures by CB Ike Taylor, LBs Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley. OT Willie Colon and QB Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers found themselves right around the point where they could tender offers to all of their restricted free agents, and sign their impending draft picks.

NT Casey Hampton's $ 5.9 million contract wasn't restructured, and the thought was they were saving Snack's contract as the ace up their sleeve.

If that was the case, they played that ace Thursday, getting the 11-year veteran to trim his base salary from $ 4.89 million to $ 2.8 million, and eliminate a workout bonus, which was set at $ 1 million. A total of $ 3.09 million was trimmed from the salary cap, per BTSC friend Brian McIntyre.

This really should be the last salary cap-inspired move the Steelers make this offseason, and it could put them in a position to sign WR Mike Wallace to the long-term deal GM Kevin Colbert said was his priority this offseason. With the Steelers probably a bit north of $ 5 million under the cap, they could also retain the services of WR Jerricho Cotchery, who is currently a free agent.

The end result, essentially, is the Steelers paying a bit more in salary this year than in normal years, so BTSC is asking all Steelers fans to buy at least one more Steelers-licensed product as a way to say thanks to ownership for not completely gutting the team, the way some owners have done in the past.

(seems like a good spot to segue into a reminder about The Jersey Rules, which will be coming out in late July. The league switched its jersey manufacturer from Reebok to Nike, and the Committee is already leaning toward the purchase of at least one jersey of the new makers.)

Every cloud has a black and gold lining, though. The way I see it, without the need to track this information down seemingly on an hour-to-hour basis, the BTSC community never would have met McIntyre.

It's about the small things, ladies and gentlemen.

Casey Hampton gets a “big snack sized” contract restructure

The Steelers continue to free up salary cap space by reworking contracts of current players, and the most recent is veteran nose tackle Casey “Big Snack” Hampton.
According to a league source, the Steelers got a little further under the salary cap by restructuring the final year of nose tackle Casey Hampton’s three-year, $ 21 million contract. Hampton, who will turn 35 by the start of the regular season, was scheduled to earn $ 4.89 million in base salary with a $ 1 million workout bonus in 2012 and his cap number was $ 8.057 million. Under the restructure, Hampton reduced his base salary to $ 2.8 million and his workout bonus is gone, reducing his cap number by $ 3.09 million.
It’s not known for sure at this time but it’s quite possible that the Steelers added another year to Hampton’s deal if indeed it was a true restructure.
Adjusting Hampton’s contract in some manner had to be in the back of their minds all along considering his cap value this...
