NFL Rumors: Brett Keisel says he's not retiring, interested in signing with Detroit Lions

Some pretty big free agents are hitting the market this offseason, and one of them is longtime Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Brett Keisel. It seems as though Keisel is getting towards the end of his career, but the Pro Bowler says he’s not done yet and still has something left in the tank.

Not only did Kiesel say he’s not retiring from football, he also mentioned he wouldn’t mind continuing his career by signing with the Detroit Lions. Keisel’s first choice would be to return to the Steelers, as they’re the only franchise he’s ever known. But if he can’t return, Detroit might want to phone him up rather quickly after he hits the market.

Per an interview with 105.1-FM Detroit:

“They’ve got a great team. I really like their quarterback. They’ve got Megatron. Who would want to play with those guys? Those guys, I think are going to make some noise next year.”

Keisel also mentions how he’s  BYU alumni and wouldn’t mind playing with Ziggy Ansah, who also happens to have played football at BYU. Adding Keisel would be gigantic for the Lions, but all of that depends on whether or not the Steelers bring him back.
