Steelers give nose tackle McLendon new deal
The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed nose tackle Steve McLendon, who was a restricted free agent, to a three-year contract, the team announced Thursday.
League sources tell ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that McLendon's deal has a max value of $7.25 million, including $1.675 guaranteed. He will make $5 million in the first two years.
McLendon had visited with the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday.
An undrafted free agent out of Troy in 2009, McLendon is expected to start this season in place of Casey Hampton, who likely won't be back with the team.
McLendon, 27, played in all 16 games last season, registering seven tackles and two sacks.
