Default Steelers Sign Chris Hoke

Excellent news! Underappreciated outside of Pittsburgh, but he's a majorly talented interior lineman in my book.....

Source: Post-Gazette
http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07172/796116-66.stm

The Steelers have signed backup nose tackle Chris Hoke to a new four-year contract worth $6 million.

Hoke, who had one year left on his contract before signing the new deal, also will receive a $1.5 million signing bonus.

And we continue with good players at all positions... rather then superstars at a few...

Thank goodness.

And I am correct that he was also undrafted?

Yes, he was undrafted. I'm glad we have him, if anything happens to casey, hoke will be there to take over, and he must be great in the 4-3.

Not the big signing I was hoping for but I'll take it. He's not the most talented guy, but he plays with a lot of heart. He's a team player and you can never have too many guys like that.

A player that you hardly hear about, but always knows his role on the team.

when hampton went down in 2005 hoke filled in and the defense didnt miss a beat (15-1). when hampton has to leave the field for a breather, nobody even notices.

excellent, under the radar move. i bet hoke didnt even have to ask for an extension, although as much money as he coulda made on the open market it seems like he told his agent he liked where he was at.

He's one of my favorites too, we never skip a beat when he's in the line up

He's a solid player that won't break the bank - I'm happy with the signing.
