    Steve McLendon spent the better part of the past four years — which included more than a dozen transactions — waiting for his opportunity to run out of the Heinz Field tunnel as the starting nose tackle for the Steelers.

    You would figure that even the most hardened player — one who has a resume that includes being released three times in a 33-day span — would allow himself to soak in the moment.

    Not Steve McLendon.

    “I don't have time for that,â€￾ said McLendon, who supplants veteran Casey Hampton.

    “Man, I've been here too long. It's just time for me to play. I've been waiting, and the time is finally here.â€￾

    McLendon will start only his second game Sunday, when the Steelers open the season at Heinz Field against Tennessee. He will be one of the few new faces on a talented and veteran defense that's finished in the top five in the NFL against the run in eight of the past nine seasons, when Hampton anchored the unit.

    Thinking I'll be very happy with his production this year.
