The Pittsburgh Steelers and free-agent DE Brett Keisel (Steelers) have agreed to an undisclosed deal, according to a source.

  Steelers | Could re-sign Brett Keisel right before training camp    Sun Jun 29, 10:55 AM

The Pittsburgh Steelers could re-sign free-agent DE Brett Keisel right before training camp starts, in the opinion of Scott Brown of ESPN.com. Keisel could be a terrific mentor for DE Stephon Tuitt, and it would allow the team to bring him along slowly.

Footballguys view: Seeing Keisel line up for another team would just be weird. We'll see if the Steelers want to bring in the veteran for a good price. They could always wait until after Week 1 (if he's unsigned at the time) because veteran salaries are not guaranteed after that point.

  Steelers | Remain interested in Brett Keisel    Mon Jun 2, 10:55 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers remain interested in bringing back free-agent DE Brett Keisel (Steelers), but only at a minimum contract for one year. The deal would include a $955,000 salary plus a $65,000 signing bonus, but would count just $635,000 against their cap in 2014 because of the veteran minimum salary benefit rule in the collective bargaining agreement.

Footballguys view: Keisel is a fine fit for the Steelers, but he reportedly wants more than just the veteran minimum. We'll see if the two sides can find a deal that is mutually agreeable in the near future.
