The problem is McClendon will never take full time reps if the Steelers keep re-signing Hampton.

What would be the point of signing Hampton? The Steelers don't need 4 NTs. Hampton is a player who should have been let ago 3 years ago.

Ta'amu was let go and then re-acquired. He is on the roster.

First I disagree that he should have been cut last year. Primarily because I don't believe McLendon is his future replacement. Sure he is in the short term but McLendon is no Hampton and frankly not even close.

Having said that, I truly hope Hampton retires.

Hampton was injured for the first part of last season. When he was healthy he did a little more than his job, unlike his supposed replacements who are at least not as bad as Hood, who needs to keep a passport with him on the field so he can get back from whatever country he keeps getting driven back into. Cutting guys just because they hit some birthday to make room for the guys who can't win the position away from them is just stupid.
