According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Steelers president Art Rooney told the media that he wants safety Troy Polamalu “to retire a Steeler.”
“How we structure or restructure (Polamalu’s contract) is something we will look at in the next few months,” Rooney said. “There are a lot of pieces to the puzzle, but I certainly expect Troy will be one of the pieces to that puzzle. … He’s obviously been one of the great Steelers at all time.”
With Polamalu scheduled to make over $8 million with a c$10 million cap number in 2014, the Steelers will have to restructure his contract.
