Troy Polamalu likely won’t be a Steeler after 2013

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, next season will likely be safety Troy Polamalu’s final season with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Small-market teams like Pittsburgh must be particularly calculated about the contracts and investments. Safety Troy Polamalu, set to make $7.5 million next season, has rarely played since getting his extension and has slowed down. Sources said he is expected back for 2013, which could be his final season there.

Polamalu is likely a future hall of famer, but he’s had a hard time staying healthy over the past few years and isn’t getting any younger.

    Someone needs to explain to this guy what a Salary cap means in the NFL. the Steeler’s aren’t a small market team and they have the same salary room as any other team, this isn’t baseball.

    The Steelers are not a small market team. Statistics show they have one of the largest, if not the largest, fan base in America.
