Yesterday, the Steelers and Kevin Colbert came to an agreement on a 1-year-deal to keep him as the franchise's general manager.
This is good news for Steelers fans.
Colbert is an excellent talent evaluator, and fans should want him to remain with the organization for a long time.
In his 20 years on the job, the Steelers have had just one losing season, made the playoffs 12 times, gone to six AFC Championship Games, appeared in three Super Bowls, and won two titles.
He drafted hall of famer Troy Polamalu, future hall of famer Ben Roethlisberger, and hall of fame hopefuls Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Maurkice Pouncey, and David DeCastro. T.J. Watt is on the fast track as well.
That's a pretty damn good resume.
Kevin Colbert doing his contract year by year doesn't inspire confidence that he wants to be doing this for a long time. He's 63 years old and retirement seems to be calling.
The organization is content to keep him as long as he wants to remain. Steelers fans should hope that's a long time.
