“I’m a tractor guy,” the defensive lineman said after pulling into the Pittsburgh Steelers’ camp in Latrobe, Pa., in a Kubota front-loader and dismounting. “I grew up in Wyoming driving one of these bad boys. This reminds me of my childhood days, swathing hay, plowing fields and planting fields.”

“We have a deal going,” Keisel said. “They let me drive one around my house a little bit to work on my fields. So I thought it would be a fun idea to show up to camp with this.”

He drove the tractor the last 20 miles to camp with his luggage up front and admits he “got some crazy looks from people driving past me.”

Maybe he can swing by and scoop up Mike Wallace.
