Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel hopes that the NFL doesn’t lockout.
In a Wednesday press conference, Keisel spoke about the situation, expressing a strong desire to play football. He said that, if there’s a lockout, he’ll earn money any way he knows how, in order to support his family.
Including digging ditches.
That said, he should be OK. He earned $2.925 million in base salary this year. Last year, he earned as base salary of $2.25 million.
And he seems to know he’ll be OK. Though it’s hard to see what’s going on behind that beard and mustache, Keisel seemed to be kidding about having to dig ditches. Judge it for yourself.
