Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert reportedly plans to retire after the 2022 entry draft is held.
This is what the NFL Network said on Sunday.
The 65-year-old has been the Pennsylvania team’s GM since 2010. He previously served as the club’s director of football operations since the 2000 campaign.
Going into the Steelers’ final game of the season, the team had gone 225-124-3 under Colbert. She also got her hands on two Super Bowls (2005 and 2009).
The football man is considered one of the best talent scouts in the NFL. Under his rule, the Steelers drafted Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Polamalu, Maurkice Pouncey, TJ Watt, Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and Cam Heyward, among others.
In addition to a possible departure of Colbert, another page of history could turn at the conclusion of the 2021 season with the Steelers. Indeed, it would seem that Roethlisberger is currently playing his last campaign on the Goodell circuit.
Last Monday, the quarterback hinted that the matchup against the Cleveland Browns could be his last Heinz Field. “Big Ben” has led the Steelers offense for 18 seasons, having been Pittsburgh’s first-round pick (11th overall) in the 2004 draft.
