Steelers Sign GM Kevin Colbert To 1-Year Extension

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed general manager and vice president Kevin Colbert through the 2022 NFL Draft.

Colbert’s current contract was set to end after the 2021 NFL Draft, and the extension adds another year — he will remain on a year-to-year basis with the team.

“I am excited to announce that we have extended the contract of Kevin Colbert for an additional year,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said. “Kevin has been instrumental to the success of our franchise over the last two decades, and we are happy to have him continue for another year.”

The 64-year-old GM joined the team in 2000 as the director of football operations, a title he held for 11 years, and enters his 22nd season with the team, Sports Illustrated reports.

“It has been such an honor to be in this position with the Steelers for over 20 years,” Colbert said. “I want to thank Art Rooney for his continued support in extending my contract another year. We’ve been able to accomplish some great things, but my determination to help the Steelers reach our ultimate goal – to win another Super Bowl – has never been greater.”
