I don't think Casey will be back next season unless he takes a paycut.

Hampton has been an anchor , and a fixture on our line for some time now .I haven't one bad thing to say about him . If he was a little over weight , seems the problem was corrected , and i would hate to see him on another team. All his team mates seem to rally around him . Every group shot you see of the defense , there is Casey right there in the middle . He just seems like one of the guys you want to have around , and i do like him around . Hope he is a steeler for life !!!!!

All the steeler nation best be aware of what casey brings to our defense . He is a big part of what allows our defense to be so flex oriented .

If we find someone else to hog up 2 men on every play , then i'm all for it . The man should be a steeler for life .

yeah that deal haynseworth got would get my butt on a treadmill too .. Who would we have to give up to keep big snack? Would giving up Clark, FWP,and Kiesel do it?

Maybe Casey didn't want to be embarrassed by being made to sit out (and work out separately from the other guys) like Mike made him do last season.

The front office is very aware of how much Hampton allows the rest of the defense to be better by taking 2 blockers on every play. As long as he will take a reasonable amount of money, I think they resign him. I am worried though about what does that mean for Woodley and Holmes, in the future.

An ample Casey Hampton, who has been known to push the scale in the mid-300s at times, pointed to his stomach after lunch yesterday and smiled broadly.

"I got abs now," the Steelers' big nose tackle said.

Hampton practiced yesterday with his teammates, something he did not do for the first two weeks of training camp last year. Last summer, he opened camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, put there by coach Mike Tomlin after he failed the run test on the first day.

Friday, Hampton passed that same run test, even though he said he is in the same kind of shape as he was at the start of camp last year. Why did he pass a test he did not one year ago?

"I just felt like doing it," Hampton said. "I just felt like making it."

Last year "I just didn't want to do it, so I didn't do it."

Hampton defended his training schedule, even if it does not coincide with the wishes of his coach. He said he does not like to beat himself up in the spring and prefers to ease into camp and get ready for the season gradually.

"I rest in the offseason, man. My thing is, I wait until like three, four weeks before training camp and then I work out. That's what I've always done. I rest my body, get my body half ready and then use training camp to get ready for the season.

"It's too much, all that banging on your body, especially the position I play. I'm not for the workout in March, April and May hard-hard-hard, for what? It doesn't make any sense. Coaches say that's when you win. I don't feel like you win games then. That's my opinion."

The 6-foot-1 Hampton, who is listed on the training-camp roster as weighing 325 pounds, never has been one to be pinned down on how much he weighs.

"It fluctuates," he said. "Nobody never knows my weight. I can make it look good or make it look bad."

The Steelers' run test Friday consisted of a series of 100-yard runs. But Hampton said, in a game, "If I have to run 100 yards, there's something wrong."so it wasn't that He needed to be put on the PUP list, He was just f*ck'n lazy.....:duh:

I don't believe he could've done it last season--considering the pics I saw. It's a completely different Casey comin into this camp (and just about every other camp I can remember). He just doesn't want to admit how out of shape he really was. He was just used to Cowher not sayin anything about it, and he was probably shocked when Mike did what he did.

Thing is, while he's right about not havin to run 100 yards in a game, what being able to do it DOES say, is that your stamina's better, and you won't get winded as fast or as easy, and will have power to last through the whole game.

Casey Hampton Doesn't Want to Be a Workout Warrior

http://www.blogcdn.com/nfl.fanhouse.com/media/2009/08/casey-hampton-heavy.jpgIf Casey Hampton (http://nfl.fanhouse.com/tag/CaseyHampton/) doesn't get a contract extension from the Steelers, his own words this weekend probably sum up why.

Hampton did finish his run test at camp this year, unlike last year, but he then told the beat writers covering the Steelers that he didn't change his routine this offseason to try to get into better shape. He says he's in the same shape this year that he was last year, when he wasn't allowed to practice until he had lost some weight.

And then Hampton explained his workout routine (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09214/988124-66.stm), or the lack of one.

"I rest in the offseason, man. My thing is, I wait until like three, four weeks before training camp and then I work out. That's what I've always done. I rest my body, get my body half ready and then use training camp to get ready for the season."
That's worked for Hampton up to now. But as freakishly talented as he is, he'll turn 32 before the regular season begins. At some point, carrying all that extra weight into camp with the hope of working it off might come back to bite Hampton, which may explain why many Steelers veterans have already gotten contract extensions while Hampton is still waiting.

It's one thing to lock up Heath Miller (http://nfl.fanhouse.com/tag/HeathMiller/) for five more years when he keeps himself in excellent shape, but paying to keep Hampton around when he's 33, 34 and 35 seems a little riskier.

I don't think you understood my post. Of course he was "lazy", but he was also so totally outta shape that he couldn't have run that 100 even if he wanted to--that's all I was sayin.
