I'm not sure who exactly gave him the nic. But I was watching a program on Steelers 24/7 on Comcast and the camera crew was following the players around up at Latrobe. They were inside the cafeteria and Hines Ward and a few others were busting on Hampton the whole time. The camera man actually panned in on the mound of food on Hampton's plate and all you could hear was Hines saying "Big Snack!". It was pretty funny although I felt a little bad for the big guy. Hampton just smiled, shook his head and took it all in stride.

Good article on Hampton even though it's from August of 2006: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06223/712722-87.stm
