Steelers believe right tackle Willie Colon is their best offensive lineman, and they showed him some love Tuesday by extending a first-round tender on the restricted free agent, according to Adam Caplan of Scout.com.
Colon will make $2.521 million if he signs the tender, which is the second highest available. We doubt anyone will try to sign Colon away, although it’s not an entirely crazy notion considering many consider Colon one of the more underrated tackles around.
Pittsburgh also extended the lowest tender to restricted free agent punter Daniel Sepulveda, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The Steelers will get the chance to match any offer Sepulveda signs elsewhere.
