Steelers haven’t approached Willie Colon about contract
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Mar 7, 2013
It’s been widely assumed since the start of the offseason that the Steelers would be parting ways with guard Willie Colon. Joe Linta, the agent for left guard Willie Colon, says the Steelers have told him they currently plan to do nothing with his contract at the moment and they have not asked for a reduction, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Max Starks and Ramon Foster aren’t expected back after hitting free agency and the presence of David DeCastro and Kelvin Beachum seem to make Colon expendable as well. For now, though, he isn’t among the veterans helping the team create cap space by changing his contract or departing altogether.
