Brett Keisel, Ryan Clark, and more

Yesterday the Steelers re-signed unrestricted free agent Brett Keisel to a four-year $13.1 million contract with a $3.29 million signing bonus. Expect Keisel to take over the starting job at the defensive end position formerly held by 35-year-old Kimo von Oelhoffen, who was signed to a surpringly lucrative 3-year contract by the New York Jets.

The Steelers also added safety Ryan Clark, signing the unrestricted free agent (Washington Redskins) to a four-year contract worth $7 million ($1.65 million signing bonus).

Today, the team re-signed backup tight end Jerame Tuman (three years, $4.2 million, $900,000 signing bonus) and offensive tackle Barrett Brooks (one year, $465,000), and restructured the contract of Pro Bowl center Jeff Hartings, who inked a one-year extension through 2007.

As a redskins fan, looks like we both (steelers and redskins) got screwed. First off, ryan clark is terrible. i cannot tell you how many times he was burnt by fast recievers or how many times he was out of coverage and got burnt because of his stupidity. He cannot be compared to Hope, you'll miss him surely!! On Randle El, we got screwed badly, the guy isn't even a #2 reciever but he's gettin paid like a #1. As long as Danny Boy is signing the checks, i could care less.
