The Pittsburgh Steelers took care of business with their head coach this week. Now they've done the same for their general manager.
"I am happy to announce that we have extended Kevin Colbert's contract for two additional years," said team president Art Rooney II. "Kevin's work and footprint on our football operations have been a key factor in our success. We are excited Kevin will continue to lead our personnel department for at least the next three years."
Consider this another example of effective management by one the NFL's most stable franchises. Locking up the coach and general manager -- in the same week, no less -- sends a message to the entire organization. The Steelers are in good hands and they know it.
