While we were writing up Nick Eason's impending signing in Pittsburgh, we noticed a piece of information that seemed worthy of its own post.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that long-time Steelers defensive end Travis Kirschke is expected to retire this offseason. The note was casually in the article, but we haven't seen this news elsewhere.
Kirschke, 35, has played 13 seasons in the NFL, including the last six in Pittsburgh. He started seven games last season.
