For a long time now one of the most familiar names that has been associated with the Pittsburgh Steelers is Troy Polamalu. From his outstanding plays on the field to his long, curly hair that flows behind him, the safety has become a face for the Steelers. There’s no doubt that Polamalu has had a hall of fame career thus far but could this be the last season we see him in a Steelers’ uniform or even in the NFL? Polamalu is one of the best safeties to ever play the game. His style of play is unique, risk taking and extremely fun to watch. Polamalu has had some of the most memorable plays in Steelers’ history. The Steelers definitely don’t win the super bowl in 2005 and 2008 without Polamalu’s spectacular play making abilities.

Extending Emmanuel Sanders Comes With Risks and Steelers Know It.

Last week I wrote that offering Ryan Clark, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ durable, 33-year old safety, a contract extension wasn’t a good idea. I based that simply on the fact that Clark is going to want a three-year deal in my opinion and that’s just not smart business for the Steelers. Now a one-year extension? That is something I could be on board with but I don’t see Clark...
