The Steelers have signed director of football operations Kevin Colbert to a five-year contract extension Wednesday.
It was a move that had been anticipated for some time.
Since joining the Steelers in 2000, Colbert has overseen one of the most successful periods in team history.
The Steelers have also drafted a number of stars, including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and strong safety Troy Polamalu, on his watch.
