Default General manager Colbert: Steelers wouldn't condone bounties

General manager Colbert: Steelers wouldn't condone bounties

PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said the organization would never condone bounties placed on opposing players.

"To intentionally set out to injure another player, there's absolutely no room for that in our game or any other game," Colbert said during an interview on Steelers.com.

Colbert also said the organization does its due diligence in the locker room to make sure nothing like that happens.

The New Orleans Saints are being investigated by commissioner Roger Goodell for an alleged bounty system used against opposing players.

"You always think that you are ahead of it, but you don't know for sure," Colbert said. "You always want to make sure that your house is in order, and we are comfortable that our house has been in order."

>> Talking for the first time since releasing key veterans last week, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said it was difficult to cut accomplished veterans such as Hines Ward, James Farrior and Aaron Smith.

"You try to remove emotion from it more than anything, but that's a difficult thing to do," Tomlin said. "These guys have made a lot of plays for us. They've provided great leadership. They've been significant members of teams that have been very successful. As human beings, we all feel that and acknowledge that. When it comes to making the decision, it has to be football-based, with the building of the team moving forward."

Smith, Ward and Farrior accumulated 42 seasons and accounted for seven Pro Bowl selections, while being integral to six division titles, three AFC Championships and two Super Bowl titles.
