When we looked at Pittsburgh’s free agent priorities a few weeks ago, we ranked Lamarr Woodley, Ike Taylor, and Willie Colon as the three key guys Pittsburgh had to worry about.

Woodley has been given the franchise tag in the meantime. Taylor may get the transition tag.

That leaves Colon, Ben Roethlisberger’s Milledgeville partner and stalwart right tackle, possibly left out in the cold. Colon’s agent told Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that there is “little chance” Colon will be back in Pittsburgh.

Presumably, Colon’s agent only said that because the Steelers have made it clear they won’t pay his client what he thinks he’s worth. Colon is coming off a torn Achilles tendon, but he will only be 28 years old entering next season. He has a lot of experience at tackle and could conceivably kick inside to guard.

As long as there is free agency, Colon’s agent knows his best deal isn’t likely to be with Pittsburgh.

Isn't likely to be with KC either.

Why was this information not posted in the DC forum? It could just as easily been placed in the: FOR CHRISTIANS... WHY IS HOMOSEXUALITY WRONG? thread.

Wouldn't go that far, but he does struggle in pass protection on the outside. Lots of talk in Pitt of him being more suited to guard position. Assuming the injured wheel checks out and the $ is right, he'd be a good pickup for the Chiefs IMHO.

He's an older version of 2010 Barry Richardson.

No thanks.

Not even close to the truth. Of course, you're the guy that said Lilja's knees were shot and that he'd be a bust in KC. So I'm not surprised.

Lilja was not the best right guard on the roster last year and I never said he'd bust, Fuckwad.

And apparently, you haven't watched the Steelers over the years, Champ, which isn't the least bit surprising.

I'd Doug Legursky in a heartbeat as well.

The Steelers have had terrible offensive line evaluations over the years. They let Urbik walk then had Legursky on the bench for the better part of two years. All he does is step in for Pouncey without missing a beat.
