Steelers sign defensive end Kirschke to two-year deal

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers signed defensive end Travis Kirschke to a two-year contract Tuesday.

Kirschke was a backup until he started four games at the end of last season after Aaron Smith went out with a torn biceps muscle.

Kirschke has played in 141 games, including 64 with the Steelers. He played six seasons in Detroit and one in San Francisco before signing with the Steelers as an unrestricted free agent before the 2004 season.
