Colbert and the Steelers agreed to a one-year contract extension last week, as he prepares to enter his 21st year with the franchise and his tenth as general manager.
Colbert also made it clear that he has no plans or desire to work for any organization other than the Steelers, signalling that he would most likely retire once his tenure in Pittsburgh is complete.
Kevin Colbert made it crystal clear that he will never work for another organization. It is either the Steelers or he rides off into the sunset.
