Steelers | Steve McLendon believes he can be starting NT
Pittsburgh Steelers DT Steve McLendon said he believes he can be a starting nose tackle even though he weighs 280 pounds. "People may say I am not the classic nose tackle, but what is the classic nose tackle. Some nose tackles are big, some small. If you look at Jay Ratliff for the Cowboys he is not a big nose tackle, but he plays very well. You look at [DT Casey Hampton] and he is a big nose tackle and plays well. I figure I will be in between. If I can move quick at nose and play strong at nose, it's all going to work itself out for me," McLendon said.
