Big Ben sported a #99 Brett Keisel practice jersey during practice this afternoon in honor of his former teammate and close friend.

Coach Mike Tomlin is back on the practice fields at Saint Vincent College and ready for the 2014-15 season.

“You guys meant the world to me. This city and this organization means the world to me. So today I came back to Pittsburgh to grant Steeler Nation this one last request. Today I am officially retiring as a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don’t want to play in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep with me, and I will remain a Steeler for life.” - Hines Ward #blackandyellow
