Default Steelers D-coordinator Dick LeBeau pays tribute to players with jersey offerings

PITTSBURGH -- Two men wore No. 99 jerseys on the Pittsburgh Steelers practice field Tuesday: defensive end Brett Keisel and 72-year-old defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.

"He found an old 99 somewhere, and it's quite an honor to have him wear it," said Keisel.

When the Steelers played a 2007 preseason game in Canton, Ohio, home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the team's defensive players arrived wearing replicas of the No. 44 jersey LeBeau's wore during his playing career as a defensive back with the Detroit Lions.

The players wanted to show their support for LeBeau's Hall of Fame candidacy. LeBeau was voted into the Hall of Fame in February and will be inducted this summer.

LeBeau also has recently worn the jerseys of players such as linebacker James Farrior and nose tackle Casey Hampton.

"I'm just working through the 30 somethings on the defense, just honoring those guys that have reached their 30th birthday," said LeBeau. " This is just a way of saying thanks to those veterans who have really been a good nucleus for us and will continue to be."

The black Keisel jersey that LeBeau wore Tuesday was tight with very short sleeves. LeBeau displayed his arm muscles.

"I told him, 'You've got the pipes out today,' ''said Keisel. "But the jerseys are tight. You can't wear too much underneath them."
