Scott Brown of ESPN.com doesn’t believe Ziggy Hood has a good chance at re-signing with the Steelers this offseason.
The Steelers appear willing to let the market set Hood’s price as well, and he may be attractive to teams that play 4-3 defenses and need help up front. Hood played nose tackle in a 4-3 defense in college. He did not line up directly over the center, which may be the best position for him. Hood, who just turned 27, could command $3 million a year on the open market. If that is the case the Steelers won’t bid on the player who could not establish himself as a long-term starter in Pittsburgh.
It feels like the Steelers just drafted Hood a few years ago. It’s a shame if they lose him.
