PITTSBURGH (AP)

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed restricted free agent Steve McLendon to a three-year contract.

McLendon originally made the Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2009. He has appeared in 37 games over the past three seasons and has three career sacks.

The 27-year-old McLendon is expected to compete for a starting job when training camp opens in July. The Steelers are looking to replace five-time Pro Bowler Casey Hampton, who is a free agent and will almost certainly not be brought back. Hampton would turn 36 before the season opener.
