    Colon signs RFA tender with Steelers

    Pittsburgh Steelers RT Willie Colon signed his restricted free agent tender on Tuesday, his agent Joe Linta confirmed to Scout.com. The former 2006 fourth-round pick will make $2.198 million this season under his one-year, first-round tender.

    Colon, who turns 26 in April, has started 34 games in his three seasons of play for the Steelers.

    There it is. The last piece of the line dubbed "The Garbage Men" has been signed. Hope your insurance is paid up Ben!

    No ****ing doubt!!! He's just not built to be a tackle in the NFL.

    Colon to RG

    Draft Mack at center. Lets face it Hartwig was never a long term solution.

    Draft Cornelius Lewis and let him and Tony Hills battle it out for the RT job.

    They have a lot of upside! When you are amongst the leagues worst it leaves a lot of room for improvement.

    The Steelers were kind of forced into re-signing Kemeoutu and Colon. They are young, still have upside, and most of all we have nobody to replace them. Starks is the only guy on the line being severely overpaid. Once we get a LT in the draft, Starks will sign a longer term deal and move back to RT next year. It's all part of the front offices' master plan!

    ..............................i hope

    Colon is not a RT and should be moved to Guard. I do not see why we would bring back the same crew. Ok Ben moves around a lot and maybe he causes the O-line to be out of position. But the penalties at critical times during games last year caused a lot of good drives to stall. Colon was the worst one for penalties. All I can say is good thing it is only one more year.....

    I'm not concerned, Colon is still a young player who has potential. I don't think that the Steelers are done with the O-line yet, they will find help in the draft, and I wouldn't be surprised if they bring in a veteran at the start of camp.
