The Steelers officially announced the signing of defensive end Brett Keisel today. Keisel, who is entering his 13th season, signed a two-year contract.
The Steelers cut defensive lineman Al Lapuaho to make room on the roster for Keisel, who will travel with the team to Philadelphia but is not expected to play in the third preseason game against the Eagles Thursday night.
Keisel, a seventh-round draft choice in 2002, has started 110 games for the Steelers. He had four sacks and two fumble recoveries last season.
