I'm optimistic. I just got back from buying a Troy Polamalu jersey. Do you guys think he'll be resigned?

Yes they will, and you just bought one of the greatest jerseys ever.

If they don't, there might be some rioting in Da 'Burgh and nation wide!

They'd be stupid not to. Did i say that? You bet I did.

The Steelers org. will wait and play this season out I would think. If Troy continues to have the concussions then they will start looking elsewhere. If he continues to have them, then he wont be playing too many more years, at least not to the level we are used to seeing out of him.

They let Porter walk and it seems like they have no plans of re-signing Faneca.......chances are pretty damn good.

I read some articles conerning his concussions and it said that when he had his brain checked after the concussion this year, his brain looked completely normal. Of course, I'm not a medical engineer or whatever, so I'm just going off reports. All things aside, it looks like they are going to resign him.

Take it to the bank - the Steelers will resign Troy. :thumbsup:

Barring some kind of major injury, mark my words: they will not let Polamalu go. Troy is a difference maker. Not just a "point him at the QB and fire" guy (with apologies to Joey Porter). Troy changes plays on the field by himself. You can see it when he fakes out lines and QBs, going back and forth at the line of scrimmage, when you see him going all out for an INT. Troy uses his head as well as having a guided missile attitude with his body. There is no one else in the NFL that can do things the way he does them. You can't replace that.
Plus, they already let Joey go and are burning bridges with Faneca. They can't afford to lose Polamalu too. (do you see a youth movement pattern there?)

anyone know are they trying to get a deal worked out now, before minicamp starts?

I have not read or heard anything locally. It's been pretty quiet.

Thanks so much for all the replies. I love my new jersey and will wear it with pride.

How could they not?

I wouldn't be surprised if they wait until next year... Faneca's money could be given over to Polamalu. However, the money needs to be freed under the cap room.
