If he hired Colbert it would be the first sign that he’s preparing for post Rhule (and possibly post Fitt) life even tho I think he’d be more of a consultant for Fitt. Shad Khan fired Baalke and Meyer. He admitted defeat in an even shorter period of time than Tepper would. These guys want to win. Bringing in a trusted advisor at the cost of eating a contract and eating some crow would be a small price to pay for Tepper.
