Keisel Coming Back to The Steelers

In a move that adds veteran leadership to a defense that already after two preseason games looks better than last year – “The Beard” is coming back to the Steelers.

Defensive lineman Brett Keisel has agreed to a deal to return to the black and gold – a fan favorite that has a cult like following among Steeler Nation.

Keisel was a free agent entering the offseason and the Arizona Cardinals had interest in him after losing Darnell Dockett for the year with a torn ACL.

Instead, Keisel said he wanted to remain with the black and gold for the rest of his career – and the Steelers obliged with a deal.

The 36-year-old will push for time at LDE with free agent pickup Cam Thomas and rookie Stephon Tuitt.

To make room on the roster, the Steelers released defensive tackle Al Lapuaho.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL. On Sunday’s during football season, you can hear Matt on national networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and others. Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, Matt studies and talks football inside and out, and is anxious to share his thoughts and comments with readers on a daily basis.
