Steelers bring back Colon on five-year deal

Willie Colon is returning to the Steelers after all.

The offensive lineman has agreed to a five-year, $29 million deal to remain in Pittsburgh, according to a league source.

Before the end of the NFL lockout, Colon’s agent, Joe Linta, expressed doubt that his client would return to the team, citing a lack of communication. Things obviously changed.

Colon was the Steelers’ starting right tackle for three seasons before an Achilles injury suffered last summer cost him all of 2010.
