The Pittsburgh Steelers said that Willie Colon was a priority this offseason and they weren’t kidding. Even though Colon missed all of last year with an Achilles injury, the Steelers rewarded the right tackle (RT) with a 5 year / 29 million dollar contract. Sources around the league say that Colon is a top notch RT but many fans have their doubts. Regardless, Colon was rewarded with a “more than fair” contract especially coming off of a serious injury. Maybe the fact that he’s good friends with Ben Roethlisberger helped his case.
