Pittsburgh Steelers: Re-Signing Willie Colon Should Be A Top Priority
The Steelers Offensive Line Is Awful, Losing Willie Colon Does Not Make It Better
Willie Colon lost the 2010 season when he ruptured his Achilles tendon last June. While the Steelers still made the Super Bowl, the patchwork offensive line was a factor in the Steelers loss to the Green Bay Packers.
As the NFL Network showed in some film breakdown, the Steelers kept pulling their tight ends back to help block in that game because of the amount of injuries to the line. In addition to Colon, Max Starks had been lost for the year and Maurkice Pouncey got injured in the AFC Championship Game.
Colon is a free agent this year and Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin would not commit to Colon since he has not been re-signed yet. The Steelers front office is known for making good decisions, and with LaMarr Woodley tagged, the team should now be focusing on getting Colon back in the fold.
The team could be waiting for a new CBA at this point, but if the Steelers enter the 2011 season with a healthy Colon, Pouncey, Starks and a fresh draft pick, that line all of a sudden is one of the best in the league.
