Steelers Director of Football Operations Kevin Colbert was on “Movin\’ The Chains” on Sirius NFL Radio this afternoon to talk to Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan about the Steelers draft this past weekend. After discussing Cameron Heyward, Marcus Gilbert, Curtis Brown, Cortez Allen and Chris Carter, Ryan asked the thoughts of Colbert regarding the recent capture and killing of Osama bin Laden. Colbert said the event was a great moment for our country, for our President, for our government and our military and anybody that works in the field of bringing down terrorism. Colbert called it great moment in American history and that everyone will remember where they were when they heard about it.
Ryan pressed Colbert further for his thoughts on the recent comments made by running back Rashard Mendenhall on Twitter and Colbert said it is obviously not an opinion that is shared by the Steelers organization and that goes without question. Colbert went on to say that the unfortunate part is that during the lockout they can\’t have communication with any of the players to discuss these types of issues. Colbert ended by saying that in his opinion and the organizations opinion, the comments by Mendenhall were ill-advised and that right now there is just nothing they can do about it.
