Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert told the media that he’s not concerned about their locker room after an anonymous player came out and said linebacker LaMarr Woodley was “awful” and “:out of shape” this past season.
“Whether you win the Super Bowl or go 8-8, there’s no 100 percent harmonious locker room,” Colbert said today at the NFL combine, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I don’t care where it is. That’s exemplified more when you’re 8-8. Quite honestly, I’m not concerned about our locker room.
“Coach [Mike] Tomlin and I had an opportunity to speak to our players since the season ended. We have a very good finger on the pulse of where we stand. From a team standpoint, we’re comfortable with that.”
Colbert was upset that the comment was anonymous.
“I was bothered by the fact it was an anonymous comment,” Colbert said. “I don’t believe any comments made about LaMarr Woodley. LaMarr Woodley has been a significant player on very successful teams and we’re happy he’s part of our team.
“If you talk to LaMarr, he’ll be the first to tell you he was disappointed in his performance. Going forward, he’s going to try to erase that season. I don’t give any credence to any comment that’s not attributed to a player. That’s a bigger disappointment to me than anything LaMarr Woodley did or didn’t do.”
