    Exclamation Steelers restructure Casey Hampton's contract

    According to a league source, the Steelers got a little further under the salary cap by restructuring the final year of nose tackle Casey Hampton's three-year, $21 million contract. Hampton, who will turn 35 by the start of the regular season, was scheduled to earn $4.89 million in base salary with a $1 million workout bonus in 2012 and his cap number was $8.057 million. Under the restructure, Hampton reduced his base salary to $2.8 million and his workout bonus is gone, reducing his cap number by $3.09 million.

    The 19th overall pick of the 2001 NFL Draft, Hampton has started 148 of 157 games, totaling 347 tackles and nine sacks, but anchoring a run defense that annually ranks among the best in the NFL. Opposing teams have averaged over 100 yards per game on the ground in just one season (2003) since Hampton arrived in 2001.

    Yup, you were right. Still makes no sense, but at least they got some cap savings. Hopefully they will use some of that 3 million dollars on a guard. Can get a pretty good one for 3 mil.

    Sorry man I just had to bust your chops a little bit since you and I have been on opposite sides of the fence on this... it's all good

    I agree though it's all about the savings for now and then see what happens in 2013. An extra $3 million gives them some breathing room for the draft if nothing else at this point.

    They didnt say when he could possibly play again? We sign old rehab players and leave gaping holes in the OL and DL
    Will he be placed on IR, does that remove his cap hit if hes on IR? Rooneys are just being nice.

    he took a legit pay cut, not just a restructure. he wants to stay that bad and if he can play, its a big enough hole on the team that it will be good to have him in the rotation
