Steeler Nation, it sadly looks as though we may have seen the last of Troy Polamalu in a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform.
Multiple reports suggest that the Steelers are ready to move on with out Polamalu in their plans for 2015. The Steelers could save up to $6 million by releasing Polamalu with a post June 1st destination.
Longtime Steelers beat reporter Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette spoke on the subject on 93.7 The Fan’s The Cook and Poni Show….
Ed Bouchette:“That is the elephant in the room, I expect him not to be here by some means. The Steelers are hoping he would retire, but I don’t know if he is going to.”
Troy Polamalu would be heading into his 13th NFL Season in 2015.
There has also been a report on NFL.com by Marc Sessler siting NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport as reporting that he was told by more than one team source that Polamalu is not in the teams plans for 2015 and the only question that remains is how he will exit.
Only Troy Polamalu knows that answer for sure but Albert Breer of NFL.com did tweet earlier today that Polamalu may just decide to call it a career.
Troy Polamalu has expressed some desire to play in 2015, but those around him believe he’ll consider retirement if the Steelers let him go.
What ever the out come Steeler Nation will surely miss one of the greatest players and people to don a Pittsburgh Steelers uniform.
