We've been peppering the site with the news as the rookies have signed their first Steeler contracts, but perhaps the best signing news in Pittsburgh came today when it was announced that Kevin Colbert has been signed through 2010. Colbert, Director of Football Operations, has been instrumental in the successful roster strategies that have kept the Steelers in the playoff hunt year in and year out. You never see "Steelers" and "salary cap mess" in the same sentence, and Colbert's a big reason why.
Kevin Colbert, right, with Coach Cowher, is signed through 2010. Huge.
As the rookies continue to sign (Willie Reid and Omar Jacobs officially signed the dotted line yesterday), let's not take for granted the man behind the Steeler roster management. We're in good hands.
