Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel wants to play in 2014, but understands the Steelers may not want to re-sign him.
“That’s very possible. That’s the nature of the business we’re in, everyone’s getting younger. Whatever happens, I’m grateful for my time that I’ve been here. I’m grateful for the success we’ve had on this team,” said the 35 year-old Keisel via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“But I want us to go out and finish this thing strong, win these last two games and go out on a positive note.”
Keisel isn’t trying to think about playing for another team or retire all together.
“I bleed black and gold, everyone knows that,” said Keisel. “I’m a Yinzer. I love this city. I plan on raising my family here. It’s one of those things that it’ll be a tough decision to be made when it’s there.”
For a player at the end of his career, Keisel has been fairly productive this season with 25 tackles and 2 sacks.
