The Steelers named two captains on Monday, QB Ben Roethlisberger and DE Brett Keisel.

Roethlisberger is a four-time team captain, having been named it previously in 2008, 2009 and 2011. He was not named team captain to start the season in 2010 while he opened the year on suspension from the league following an incident in which he was accused of sexual assault in Georgia.

Keisel has never been named captain of the team before. The Steelers did not name a special-teams captain.
