"No need wasting time on players who aren't here." That's what Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said on the radio recently.
Wow. Hold outs are funny because usually the team and the player end up agreeing to something before the regular season and the whole thing ends up being much ado about nothing. This one, well, this one might be longer.
“No, that’s totally up to Bell,” Colbert said. “I mean, he needs to do what he needs to do in his mind and we need to do what we need to do. Whenever players aren’t here, we focus on who is here and who can help us win and that’s where we are. And really, beyond that, there’s no need wasting time on something that we can’t control. Let’s just move on and get ready for Cleveland throughout the preseason.”
“You know, until he shows, he’s not here and again, we’re fine moving on day-to-day and getting ready for Cleveland with what we have and being confident that the guys here will grow and get better and hopefully meet that challenge,” Colbert said.
Nothing to see here folks, just the Steelers moving forward without the best running back in the league.
