Default Casey Hampton

Dammit! Don't start a thread about a bad to the bone, run stuffing, stump of a DT unless they're already signed. I seriously thought we aquired Hampton overnight. Demeco is even upset with this thread.

I don't know about a 3rd for a 32 year old. Maybe two 5ths.

I would definitely love to have Hampton. I've been begging for a run stuffing NT all off season. They could play Hampton as a 2 down NT, and move Smith inside on passing downs.

Default Re: Casey Hampton

There are news stories in Pittsburgh about the possibility of the Steelers releasing Hampton in the final round of cuts. Here's one:

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt...ce=rss&feed=9/

For an analogous deal, the Jets traded a 3rd and 4th round pick to Carolina for Kris Jenkins, shifting him from a 4-3 DT to a 3-4 NT. Jenkins was 29 at the time; like Hampton, Jenkins had multiple Pro Bowls on his resume, and the Jets signed him to a $20 million guaranteed deal (5 years, $35m total) in the trade.

Also, the Browns traded Shaun Rogers to the Browns for a third and CB Leigh Bodden, but this trade was after a deal with Cincy for a third and fifth fell through. Rogers was 30 when he was traded.

Hampton turns 32 tomorrow, but he is still a very good player. I'd see if the Steelers bite for a third and a fifth (their choice between our pick and San Diego's pick). I think a nice four year deal could work.

I'm drooling at the thought. He would instantly solve our DT problem. That means there is, of course, no way this deal will happen.

Exactly. For Pitt, who would I am sure love to win another SB... what would be in it for them besides getting worse on defense this year? Who would step in for them?

Isn't he more of a classic 3/4 type NT, ala a Curly Culp? I guess I'm not certain if he fits our scheme. I know he is a very good run stuffer but at his age, I wouldn't give up the farm for him.

Default Re: Casey Hampton

Steelers NT Casey Hampton and defensive coordinator **** LeBeau laughed off rumors that the run-stopper would be cut before the season.

The 32-year-old is entering a contract year, but he's an unlikely candidate for release. Instead, the Steelers will let him walk as a free agent after the season.

http://www.rotoworld.com/content/pla...ort=NFL&id=645

Is this a smoke and mirror act, to up the anny?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......

I'd offer both 5ths, one regular one conditional (on how many games played) that can be moved up to a 3rd. If the Steelers are letting him go though...That gives bad vibes unless it really, truly is just a cap move.

Default Re: Casey Hampton

The Steelers have a number of players in the last year of their contracts (including Hampton). They may want to free up money to work deals with the players they want to extend. Hampton has all but said that if he hits FA, he's gone. I seriously doubt they will outright release him, but, if they do, it will be for financial reasons. The more likely scenario is a trade, as they want to get something for him.

This team, in particular the defense, is still extremely young, so I wouldn't mind giving up two draft picks for a veteran player. IF we had Hampton, we would have some real flexibility on defense of the first time:

Base Defense: Mario, Hampton, DelJuan (a far better run defender than Okoye), Smith with Cushing, Meco and Diles (Adibi is killing this team with his lack of gap discipline) at LB.
Long Yardage (non-nickel): Mario, Okoye, Smith and Barwin backed by Adibi, Meco and Diles. Diles comes out in a pure nickel.

The only iron-men in this scheme are our two bell-cows, Mario and DeMeco, and this year's big-money FA in Smith. Hampton plays only on run downs, Okoye is a pass-rusher, and the two rookies start out as specialists while they learn to become every down players.

A fan can dream, can't he?
