Report: Steelers remain interested in re-signing Brett Keisel for the veteran minimum

brett keiselAccording to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,  the Steelers are still interested in re-signing defensive lineman Brett Keisel for the veteran minnium.

Brett Keisel remains a free agent and it makes just too much sense for him not to rejoin the Steelers. He might be with them now if it weren’t for his balking at taking the minimum money. But as a top-tiered veteran, Keisel’s minimum would be $1 million. He probably also would not have to play as many snaps as they rotate rookie Stephon Tuitt at defensive end. The Steelers remain interested in Keisel for a contract that would included a $955,000 salary plus a $65,000 signing bonus but would count only $635,000 against their cap in 2014 because of the veteran minimum salary benefit rule in the CBA.
