Have We Seen the Last of Troy Polamalu?

Troy Polamalu Undecided Whether to Play Another Year…

It appears that Troy Polomalu is still undecided as to come back to play one more year or not.   There is a lot of talk that the Steelers are actually hoping he retires so they do not have to release him.Troy Polamalu

Polamalu has been one of the the most recognizable Steelers of all time with his diving interceptions, jumping over the offensive line to sack the quarterback seemingly before he even gets the ball, and coming out of nowhere to kill a play that looked like a sure touchdown for the opposing team.   His ability to come up big in big games is what has made him in icon in Pittsburgh and a huge celebrity everywhere else.

But the Steelers organization has been famous for letting go of older players – it IS a business.   Their decisions to let great players go is never popular with fans.   Recently Hines Ward was let go after he announced he wanted to come back for one more season.   Could this be another case of an incredibly popular player being let go?

Read the articles below to get all the latest on Troy’s situation, the Steelers situation, and the reaction of fans worldwide…
