Troy Polamalu on the fence about retiring, playing in 2015

What we know now for sure is that the Pittsburgh Steelers don't have plans to include safety Troy Polamalu in 2015 plans, which means he's either shown the door or leaves on his own accord.

Stevan Ridley View image | gettyimages.com If the Pittsburgh Steelers want to lighten to load on Bell substantially in 2015, Stevan Ridley might be a decent option.  He has had his fair share of turnover issues, but maybe in a lighter role, and under new coaches, in Mike Tomlin and Todd Haley, the issues would subside. Ridley and Bell would be an excellent one-two punch...

Nobody’s safe in the NFL and nothing is sacred

Part of the reason that the signing of Josh McCown was such big news in Cleveland is because it meant the end of Brian Hoyer. As a player, there’s nothing worth talking about with Brian.
