Access, to an extent is part of the benefit of being a Steelers season ticket holder. Sort of.
Monday, a call went out to all season ticket holders with an invite to a conference call with Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert. On it, fans could ask Colbert whatever they wanted (to an extent, as presumably there were moderators ready to provide a quick disconnect to any out of line questions).
Think of it as a random sample of questions on the collective minds of Steeler Nation.
One particular question stood out, as transcribed by Bob Labriola of Steelers.com.
"...it was interesting when Clifford asked Colbert to talk about one of this year's undrafted rookies: Utah WR-KR Reggie Dunn."
Dunn just keeps coming up. With a "countless" amount of people on the phone, Colbert fielded 22 questions in total, one of them on the undrafted free agent kick returner from Utah, Dunn is quickly picking up popularity and will no doubt be a hot story as the Steelers begin their full-team Organized Training Activities with a weekend session starting May 21.
Colbert was asked about second-year linebacker Sean Spence, who continues to recover from a knee injury suffered at the end of the preseason in 2012.
"Sean is progressing. When you have as serious a knee injury as he unfortunately had, it sometimes is a very long process. Sometimes it takes over a year to fully rehabilitate. But the good thing is we are seeing signs of progress, albeit small steps. But it is progress. Sean's attitude is off the charts. He wants to rehab. He wants to be a great player. He is working hard to get there. He is making small progress, and as long as he is making progress, we will be patient with him and hopefully get him back at full speed at some point."
