Re: Hoke Signs Two-Year Extension
Good move by the Steeler front office. Basically a safety net for the team in terms of a Plan B for dealing with Hampton and his agent.
I didn't take Hampton's comments about wanting to remain a Steeler too seriously. Hampton is looking for a new contract after miss parts of last year with a knee injury. He's looking to say the right things, etc. Say the right things now and maybe you get a contract early enough that you don't have to prove much that the knee is 100% rehabbed. Not to say he doesn't want to be a Steeler but I won't put much weight on those comments right now.
