Storylines of interest: The 12-year veteran Keisel re-signed this week with the Steelers, agreeing to a two-year deal, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "For them to give me the opportunity to come back means a lot to me and I can’t wait to get back to work," Keisel told steelers.com. His re-signing cost another local, Utah State's Lapuaho, his job, as the Steelers released him to make room for the former BYU star. ... So'oto is receiving attention for his play in the preseason, which included three tackles, one sack and a forced fumble last week. “I think everyone in a helmet and cleats out here has a chance to make it,” So’oto told steelers.com. “I don’t think one play or one turnover will sway the coaches’ decisions either way. I think it’s more about practice day in and day out and being able to come out here and be conditioned and make plays and just do your best.”
