#99 in BLACK & YELLOW released by Steelers!..."TRIPLE DIAMOND Chronicles" as the Original "Fear the BEARD" Steelers DE Brett Keisel no longer a STEELER and most likely to retire! @bkeisel99 #SteelersNation

Look that Steelers "D" and that stout Run Defense through the 2K's hasn't been the same without Aaron Smith #91. Now comes news and expected news that #99 Brett Keisel has been released by the Black and Yellow all good players will get to the end sooner rather than later. Keisel like Smith was a vital part to that 3-4 zone blitz scheme as you see a shell of it now!  

Safety Troy Polamalu anchored that back end for quite sometime as Backer "Potsie" James Farrior of Wahoos Nation (former Jets 1st Rounder) anchored that front seven. They both will tell you without hesitation our job was made easier by the likes of #99, #91, and #98 Casey "Honey I ate the Purple Browns" Hampton among others.

#99 was consistent on the playing field but will be missed more in that Steelers Locker Room. The Career Numbers for the original "Fear the Beard" #99.

"Fear the Beard" #99 Black & Yellow Career Numbers:


College: BYU Cougars
Draft: Steelers 7th Rd Pick (242) 2002
Twitter: @bkeisel99
#99 Steelers Numbers:

156 Gms 114 Gms Started
254 Tckls 154 Asst
30 Red Jersey Collections (Sacks)
2010 Pro Bowler
2x Super Bowl Champ
3x AFC North Champ

Look Steelers Heads he was great and I hope some of the young players learned from him as Cam Heyward has finally arrived and next up is 2nd year DE Stephon Tuitt. #99 will be missed but we all know that "Elephant in the Room" #43 has to fall within days and I hope Troy does the right thing and just retires as a Steeler!  

Good Luck #99 in your next phase and keep that Website with the Pics rolling as once a Steeler always a Steeler!
