Steelers bring back Keisel

Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed defensive end Brett Keisel to a two-year contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Keisel has played his entire 12-year career with the Steelers, who selected him in the seventh round of the 2002 NFL Draft. However, he had not received a contract offer as an unrestricted free agent this summer. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that the Arizona Cardinals were set to make him a proposal earlier this week.

The Post-Gazette reported a deal with the Steelers was in the works on Tuesday and Keisel revealed his plans to stay in Pittsburgh on Twitter.

"I am very excited to finish what I started in 2002 with the @steelers," Keisel wrote. "Time to get to work!!"

Keisel has started 110 of the 144 games he has played with Pittsburgh and has helped the Steelers to a pair of Super Bowl titles. He has 29 career sacks with seven forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries.

A 2010 Pro Bowl selection, Keisel also has three sacks in 16 postseason games.

The Steelers released defensive tackle Al Lapuaho to open a roster spot.
