“Kevin Colbert is stepping down as our GM after the draft this year. We have left the door open, Kevin and I, to possibly have him fill an ongoing role after the draft, but we will be conducting a search for a new GM starting immediately and probably won’t make a hire until after the draft. We will be interviewing people, and we’ve already interviewed two of our in-house candidates, Omar Khan and Brandon hunt,” Rooney said.

The Pro Bowl is the all-star game of the National Football League.

The 2022 Pro Bowl will be played at Allegiant Stadium, Nevada, on Sunday, February 6.
