Steelers sign McLendon to three-year deal

APR 18
By Jamison Hensley | ESPN.com

The Pittsburgh Steelers reached a three-year deal with nose tackle Steve McLendon, thanks to a nudge from the Green Bay Packers.

A day after McLendon visited the Packers, the Steelers struck a multiyear deal with the restricted free agent that's worth a maximum of $7.25 million and includes a $1.675 million signing bonus, according to the NFL Network.

The Steelers had other options -- like re-signing Casey Hampton or giving Alameda Ta'amu a shot to start -- but keeping McLendon was the best one. Hampton turns 36 by the time the season starts and Ta'amu is a risk considering his off-the-field issue.

McLendon, 27, is hitting the prime of his career and has shown the ability to step up when Hampton has been hurt. But the Steelers committed to McLendon more on projection than on production. He has one career start and played only 139 defensive snaps last season.

The Steelers could have avoided all of this drama if they had put a second-round tender on McLendon, which would have cost the team $700,000 more this offseason. Still, in the end, the Steelers likely would've reached a multiyear deal with him anyway. The interest from the Packers just sped up the process.

Mclendon has shown flashes in his abbreviated playing time. He is hungry and coaches raved about him last preseason. i was surprised he didn't get more playing time last year. Lets see what the 2 young lions tamu and fangupo can bring during camp.... competition is good!!!

Just waiting for the naysayers to come in and post how the FO screwed this up and they don't know what they're doing.

I thought he was too small and didn't fit a 3-4

This guy has impressed everyone when he's on the field unlike Evander Hood. I wish we would cut ties with him already and give Heyward some playing time.

This is the first offseason move we've made that I'm legitimately excited about.

Finally!!

Please play the younger guys, it's the only way you find out if they've got what it takes.

I too was surprised that he didn't get more snaps over Casey last year.

Last summer I remember hearing many times how he was going take the big jump last season.

But he never got the chance......and when he did he seemed to play angry and make plays.
