New deal for Polamalu

Posted on: September 10, 2011 2:42 pm
 
Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu has signed a new four-year deal, I've confirmed, and with all of the new contracts and extensions signed post-lockout, Polamalu's is one of the most well-earned.

A source with knowledge of the deal said the contract makes Polamalu one of the highest paid defensive players in the league but what this deal represents more than anything is a reward for one of the hardest working and most vicious players the sport has seen. Sure, there are those who believe he's overrated (I'm looking at you Pete Prisco) but he's not.

He's the 21st century Ronnie Lott. That makes him special and this contract is well deserved.

Now, speaking of well deserved, all we need to have is Drew Brees get his deal done.

i challenge you to watch 4 games that troy is in and you will change your mind quick and he is still only at 80% thats how bad his injury is

He's doing horrendous today and getting beat 24/7.  He can't even make tackles on the running backs without commiting penalties like horse collars either.  Ravens making the Steelers look like chumps on defense and offense.  But Troy Polamalu is the one stumbling and missing at the end of most plays.

There was never a doubt Polamalu would sign & continue his HOF career with the Steelers.  I enjoy watching Pittsburgh's the front office almost as much as watching the team play on Sundays.  It's easy to see why this organization has 6 SB rings and will contend for more, their weakest link, whatever that is, is pretty damn good.
