Defensive end Brett Keisel is looking forward to the first training camp practice, when the speed picks up and the team gets their first real look at what young players are capable of.
“I am very excited,” said Keisel. “We have a young group of guys coming in here. This is where you define your team and figure out who is going to help you win games throughout the season. You don’t know what guys are capable of until they put on the pads and go full speed. It will be interesting to see who steps up and makes plays.”
Keisel, who is in his 11th training camp, has advice for the young players.
“You can’t slow down,” said Keisel. “Yu have to work your tail off every day. Nothing is going to be given to you. You only get so many reps and it’s what you do with those reps that decide if you are going to make this team or not.”
Camp practices will give Keisel and the defensive line a true feeling of what rookie offensive linemen David DeCastro and Mike Adams are capable of.
“We have seen what they do with a college uniform on,” said Keisel, “Let’s see what they do with a Steelers uniform on.”
