The Pittsburgh Steelers are reportedly working on a long term deal with free agent to be DT Casey Hampton, but if one can’t be reached they’re prepared to use the franchise tag.

That according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, as the Steelers have until Thursday to use the tag.

New England has already tagged Vince Wilfork. Others DTs expected to be tagged if a long term deal can’t be reached include Green Bay’s Ryan Pickett and San Fran’s Aubrayo Franklin.
