Tight end Mark Bruener lingered on the field with his family and played football with his kids a little longer than he typically does. They posed for pictures near the end zone after what was Bruener’s final game as a Texan.

Bruener, who only played in two games this season, was activated for the season finale and was named the team’s honorary captain. He has spent the last five years of his 14-year NFL career with the Texans.

“I have been enjoying every day as much as I can,” said Bruener, whose sons attended practice with him Friday.

Bruener is a class guy, he was always there, always, to help a tackled teammate off the turf. Good luck Mark!

Loved his work ethic here in Pittsburgh. He will be missed.

Always a fan on him and even though we never really used him as anything more then a extra tackle he was a damn good player for us and I hope his new life is as enjoyable as his career in the nfl. Thank you Mark.

He was one of my favorite Steelers while he was with us, and I hated to see him go to the Texans.

One of my favorite memories of watching Bruener was on a play when Dan Kreider caught a TD pass and seemed like he didn't know what to do, then Bruener ran up to him and pointed at the ground like "spike the ball" and Krieder did. Was a pretty cool thing to watch.

Best of Luck Mark.

I didn't even realize he was still playing.

Peace, Mark!

Bruener was a stud. Best of luck to you and your family.
