05:25 PM ET 01.31 | Some pretty big free agents are hitting the market this offseason, and one of them is long-time Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Brett Keisel. It seems as though Keisel is nearing the end of his career, but the Pro Bowler says he's not done yet and still has something left in the tank. 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.

He's open to wherever the dollars are right. Just like everybody else. I hear his beard wants to go to Miami.

His beard needs to go to the shower first.

Agreed sir. Still, can you imagine the stories it could tell?

We should let the CDC debrief it first.

Never heard of him. Alert the media.

He has a future in Capital One commercials at the very least.

No, the beard needs to go to a cold weather team like GB or NE otherwise it's gets too stinky.

It will be sad to see him go, but the kids the Steelers drafted in recent years are as good as him. Between that and the salary cap, he's probably gone.

Hate to see him leave, has been an excellent person on and off the field. "Fear the Beard"

Or as the Viking Mascot .

If we can get him to resign for a couple years at vet minimum, it'd be worthwhile.
Veteran leadership plus familiarity with the team and system as well as no significant cap hit. Opens the door to either cut Troy or re-structure his contract (again)l

Farewell o bearded one. You were a great warrior.

I was thinking the GEICO caveman.

Bring the beard to Det. I think someone with a lot of time in the league might help teach the young boys up front in Det. a little maturity and control.

That's what I'm hoping for. I'd be sorry to see him go.
