Default Polamalu/Steelers Agree to Contract

Steelers, Polamalu agree to 5-year contract extension
Monday, July 23, 2007

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

(Published: 3:40 p.m., updated 3:51 p.m.)

The Steelers agreed to a contract extension today with safety Troy Polamalu, assuring one of their best players will remain in Pittsburgh for a while longer.

Polamalu signed a five-year contract worth $33 million, making him the highest-paid Steeler and highest-paid safety in the NFL. He will receive bonuses -- including signing and roster -- of $15,375,000.

Polamalu, who has made every Pro Bowl since he became the Steelers starting strong safety in 2004, had one year left on the contract he signed as a rookie in 2003.

At 5-10, 207 pounds, Polamalu plays a unique brand of safety, lining up in various positions on defense. Coordinator Dick LeBeau has designed many of his defenses to take advantage of Polamalu's ability.

WOO HOO!!!! Troy's signing just made my day! Thanks for posting the story 83.

Hark! What is that I hear in the distance? It sounds like a baby crying. Oh wait - it's Alan Faneca.

highest paid steeler?

more than hines?

more than a lineman?

i guess that proves exactly what they think of him. no hometown discount though?

oh well, hes worth it and in 5 years he will probably only be the 15-20th highest paid safety while he is still playing at a level in ronnie lotts substratosphere. kinda like when faneca was the highest paid guard.

so how long before ed reed and sean taylor announce they will hold out. good luck to the pats getting their THa U safety signed. hell probably hold out for troy money too.

I love the fact we signed him. I love the fact that he will be a Steeler for a LONG time....

i just hope we don't hamper our ability in the future to keep players by signing the big contract now.

However... I still trust the Rooneys!

And if I were to give the big contract to ANY of our players.. it would be Troy. Plays big, shuts his mouth, great guy. Yeah, I can understand it.

Looks like the P-G just updated the story with the terms:
