Default Steelers re-sign Kirschke

Steelers re-sign defensive end Travis Kirschke
By John Harris
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Tuesday, February 19, 2008

The Steelers signed veteran defensive end Travis Kirschke to a two-year contract extension today.

Kirschke, 33, recorded 29 tackles, two sacks and three quarterback hurries primarily as a backup in 2007.

He replaced injured starter Aaron Smith for three games during the regular season and also started against Jacksonville in the playoffs.

Kirschke joined the Steelers as a free agent in 2004.

With the lack of depth on the d-line to begin with, I don't think we could have afforded not to re-sign him.

i like the signing for depth, and depth only, but we still need to get a younger defensive line.

Kirschke will be good for veteran leadership. We still need to get some younger guys. We have 2 guys who are solid DL(Snack and Smith). But Kiesel's spot bugs me.
