STEELERS RE-SIGN KEISEL



Continuing a busy day of Steeler news, the team has signed Brett Keisel to a five-year deal that keeps him in the black and gold until 2013. He will more than likely be the last of the pending unrestricted 2010 free agents to sign before or during the season, says the PG's Ed Bouchette.

Keisel, a 2002 7th-round draft pick from BYU, has been a full-time starter since 2006. He missed six regular season games due to knee and calf injuries last season. His career highs came in 2006 when he had 55 tackles and 5.5 sacks.

The Steelers still have a number of players entering the final year of their contract in 2009, most notably Willie Parker, Casey Hampton, Jeff Reed, Justin Hartwig, Willie Colon, and Ryan Clark, among others. Long story short, don't get too used to the 2009 Steelers staying together for a long time, because there will be some level of turnover virtually guaranteed for 2010.
