It’s official — Brett Keisel is returning to the club for whom he’s played his entire career.
The Steelers announced Wednesday they had signed Keisel, a long-time defensive end in the club’s 3-4 scheme, to a two-year contract. The announcement was made on the club’s website.
The 35-year-old Keisel has appeared in 144 regular season games for Pittsburgh since 2002, making 110 starts.
Keisel’s re-signing with Pittsburgh came after Arizona — a popular landing spot for former Steelers in recent years — expressed interest in the veteran defensive lineman.
In a corresponding roster move Wednesday, the Steelers waived first-year defensive tackle Al Lapuaho.
