At age 31, Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro safety Troy Polamalu doesn't always make it to every voluntary workout. But as the Steelers held their first OTA earlier this week on Tuesday, Polamalu was in fact in attendance and pledged to be there for the remaining workouts through mandatory minicamp on June 12-14, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
But as the years pass by, the question as to Polamalu's future has arisen, especially with news relating to the Baltimore Raven's Ed Reed, who said he's "not 100 percent committed."
Polamalu says he is committed to playing, but he cannot say for how long. He said he thinks about the end "all the time."
"People have asked me how many years do you think you can play? My reaction is always, when you live day to day, it's hard to talk years. It's always been my mantra in life, whether it was my first year as a rookie or year 10, I just live day to day."
