    Does anybody really think Diesel won't come back next year?

    He seems to be really energetic and enjoying himself lately.

    Where did all that talk start??

    I hope he comes back!


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    It will probably depend on who else stays around and how much he wants to make.

    Keep Keisel here next year. Say goodbye to Zig. Lots of good can come from having Keisel on this team and playing too.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    Just depends on how much he wants to make next season.

    vet minimum and he stays. I seriously doubt he has the leverage or the interest from other teams to get more elsewhere. so unless he decides to retire, i think he comes back under those terms.

    That sounds about right, if he comes back. Keisel played with a lot of fire the past two weeks, likely knowing that these could be his last two games. If he comes back, I'd want to see him as a rotational player. I don't particularly want to see Ziggy Hood return, but he was not as bad at the end of the season. I doubt that both will return, and I think the infusion of some new blood at DE could help a lot. A Travis Kirschke or KVO level FA, somebody who could add some strength and toughness without breaking the bank, would help a lot.

    As a 10+ year veteran, Keisel will be at the veteran minimum of $955K for 2014 + any bonus money he wants or they add. I thought the last CBA included some cap relief for the older guys and counting against the overall cap hit but maybe I'm making that up.

    Depends. He is not a 16 game player any longer, so taking the roster spot is something to consider. Vet minimum is fair for the team, but no one knows what Kiesel thinks is fair.
