Troy Polamalu Contract: Steelers Sign Star To Four-Year Extension

There had been reports about the Steelers continuing contract discussions with new safety Troy Polamalu, and now it appears those talks have come to fruition. According to various sources on Twitter, the Steelers have signed Polamalu to a new four-year deal. Mark Kaboly:

Troy signs contract in room at the FBO before charter to baltimore takes off

Steelers Depot:

Sources inform me the new deal is in the neighborhood of $36.5 million for Polamalu.

And, finally, the Steelers themselves have confirmed the news:

We have agreed to a contract extension with @tpolamalu signed at airport before we leave for Balt

There wasn’t much danger that Polamalu was actually going to leave – if the Steelers hadn’t reached an agreement with him, they would have made him their franchise player and kept him around on a one-year deal in 2012. But this move should still please Steelers fans.

The Steelers have signed LaMarr Woodley, Lawrence Timmons and now Polamalu to long-term deals this offseason.
