Steelers are thinking about re-signing Brett Keisel
The Pittsburgh Steelers have tons of veterans that want to come back and play for them in both James Harrison and Santonio Holmes, and now they could be looking at bringing another one back. According to the Post Gazette Keisel is still on the Steelers radar.
Brett Keisel remains a free agent and it makes just too much sense for him not to rejoin the Steelers. He might be with them now if it weren’t for his balking at taking the minimum money. But as a top-tiered veteran, Keisel’s minimum would be $1 million. He probably also would not have to play as many snaps as they rotate rookie Stephon Tuitt at defensive end. The Steelers remain interested in Keisel for a contract that would included a $955,000 salary plus a $65,000 signing bonus but would count only $635,000 against their cap in 2014 because of the veteran minimum salary benefit rule in the CBA.
At a cheap rate this would be a very smart investment.
