Default Steelers Re-sign Keisel for 5 years

Steelers re-sign Keisel for five years
Monday, August 31, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Defensive end Brett Keisel signed a five-year contract this afternoon, most likely the final player the Steelers will sign until after the seasons.

Keisel was among a large group of starters entering their final season under contract. The Steelers have a policy that once the regular season starts, they no longer will negotiate contract extensions.

Among those starters who will enter their final year under contract are nose tackle Casey Hampton, halfback Willie Parker, tackle Willie Colon, safety Ryan Clark, center Justin Hartwig and kicker Jeff Reed.

Keisel, 30, has been their starter on the right side of their defense since 2006. He is now under contract through 2013.

Keisel, represented by Monroeville native Eric Metz, was a seventh-round draft choice in 2002 from Brigham Young. He has started 42 games since 2006, although he missed six regular season starts last season because of knee and calf injuries.

Among others who signed contracts this year were linebacker James Harrison, guard Chris Kemoeatu, tackle Max Starks, guard Trai Essex, tight end Heath Miller, wide receiver Hines Ward and linebacker Keyaron Fox.

Well-deserved. Thank you front office for completing this deal before the start of the regular season.

Congrats on BK for many more years as a citizen of Steeler Nation.

Anyone know what kind of a cap hit he'll be for us or the final terms of the agreement?

Cool--anyone else think that with Smith and Farrior aging and Hampton's contract almost up, we may be transitioning to more of a hybrid defense?

I mean, we don't really have a lot of depth at 3-4 NT, and it's a tough position to find--Hood probably isn't the answer there.

grats!

It makes me nervous that they may not reup Reed. Kicking in Heinz field is an adventure and he seems to have figured it out.

Rather signed Clark...Our line is to old. Probably means the end for Hampton
