Brett Kesiel headed in to lunch on Monday sporting a “Steel Curtain” t-shirt. It wasn’t a throwback from the ‘70s when the Steelers’ defensive line was known as that. Instead, it was new, in reference to the current line, something that makes Keisel proud.
“It’s an honor to play on a defense that some consider the new Steel Curtain,” said Keisel. “We’re trying to be like those guys.”
Keisel, in his 12th season, hopes to be like them a bit longer. He is in the last year of his contract but that doesn’t mean he is ready to hang up the cleats.
“It’s the last year of my contract. That is all it is,” said Keisel. “I am excited about this year and we will see what happens after.
“I am enjoying being able to do this for 12 years, enjoying helping out these young guys, enjoying being a leader. I am just enjoying having the opportunity to play and how lucky we are to be able to go out and do this every day.”
