Troy Polamalu Contract Could Be Next For Steelers

After signing outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley to a huge new contract, the Steelers could now turn to safety Troy Polamalu.

“My only comment is, because I know things can really get misconstrued a lot, is that everything regarding our contract talks will stay between the Rooneys and my agent,” Polamalu said. “Other than that, I would love to retire a Pittsburgh Steeler.” When asked if talks have already begun, Polamalu smirked before saying: “I’d love to retire a Pittsburgh Steeler.”

Polamalu’s current contract expires after this season. At 30, Polamalu is a bunch older than Woodley, and any new contract for Polamalu should probably be approached with some degree of caution. He plays an incredibly physical game and has already shown a tendency to get hurt, having missed several games in both of the last two seasons. It would be great if the Steelers could keep him, but they need to be careful here.
