Steelers Open To Bringing Back Veteran NT Casey Hampton OT Max Starks
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Monday the team has not ''shut the door on anybody,'' including veterans Max Starks and Casey Hampton who have a combined four Super Bowl rings between them.
Starks started all 16 games at left tackle in 2012 while Hampton did the same at nose tackle. Both players became free agents last month and remain on the market. The Steelers have already targeted their replacements - Marcus Gilbert for Starks and Steve McLendon for Hampton - but for a team that's already lost a handful of starters to free agency or contract terminations, having some familiar faces might help.
Colbert insisted there is no rush and any movement would most likely happen after this weekend's NFL draft.
''They could sign a contract today and end up behind a first-round draft pick,'' Colbert said. ''We'll see where things stand on Monday.''
