    Colbert Listed As NFL’s 5th Best GM

    Last month, we wrote about Rotoworld ranking Kevin Colbert in the top three of all GMs. While NJ.com didnít put Colbert on their podium, he does still sit in the top five. The website ranked all 32 general managers in the game, settling on 5th place for the man running the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    In their overview of him, author Darryl Slater wrote:

    ďHe has an excellent track record with the Steelers since 2000, but we arenít so sure about some of his recent moves, including the departures of Antonio Brown (trade) and LeíVeon Bell (free agency) this offseason. Still, he does have those two Super Bowl titles, and has won despite never spending a ton of money in free agency.Ē

    Overall, a fair assessment from an outside perspective. Losing Brown and Bell are obviously moves not to be doing cartwheels over but in hindsight, they make sense. Brown wanted out and keeping him simply wasnít an option. Though the trade return was underwhelming, it gave Pittsburgh the ammunition to make a rare and bold first round trade, moving up ten spots to select Devin Bush. So the draft capital was at least well spent.

    Bell simply came down to money. We can debate over the particulars of the contract he received with the Jets, the amount of guaranteed money and if sitting out last year was worth it. But itís also fair to say he got less money than what he wanted from the Steelers and expected to receive once he hit the market. James Conner isnít of Bellís caliber but the difference in money, Conner still cheap on his rookie deal, makes it difficult to be mad at Colbert for not giving in to Bellís demands.

    i would agree with the ranking
    he totally f'ed up the brown deal and almost f'ed up the bell deal(by actually making him those contract offers) but the guy puts better than league average talent on the filed every year, doesnt put us in cap hell, and doesnt wager our future on ridiculous contracts or trading away picks.
    he consistantly messes up less than other GMs, by far

    since the author didn't list Colbert as a top 4 GM it looks like I'll just have to go on a personal attack against that mean bad author...

    That sounds like the makings for a ScyFy made-for-TV movie:
