Hampton Resigns With Pittsburgh

Casey Hampton inked a three-year, $21 million contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers today, leaving the free agent market with almost no marquee names left.

This means the 'Skins will most likely use Albert Haynesworth for the nose tackle position whenever the team decides to employ a 3-4 defense in 2010.

I would imagine that defensive coordinator Jim Haslett will use both the 3-4 and 4-3 since Haynesworth doesn't want to play NT, and is actually a better 4-3 DT anyway. Plus, the linebacking situation isn't set in stone yet.
