Default ? on Troy's Contract

http://www.geocities.com/steelersala...oyPolamalu.htm

With Ed Reed raising the salary bar with his new deal. Will the Steelers pony up and pay Troy what he is worth? Or might he be gone in two more years?

What Steeler has ever been the highest paid at their position?? There is always another team that raises the bar at selective postions but it's always the other teams.

They'll offer Troy "Top 3" money. And he'll take it.

Sorry, help me find the thread so I can see some more comments.

As far as holding out... did you think Hines would have held out for more Jack?

I would like to think that Troy knows a good thing when he sees it. It makes sense to stay with a winner, you will have enough money either way. But a chance at rings is priceless. BUT you never know! Agents suck

Polomalu is a very humble and religious (Christian) man. He's not out there to show off and get big money. On this board I've read an article of him bein in constant prayer durin the entire game he plays. A man like this isn't goin to uproot his family (even if he only has a wife) and move to another city to get more money at another team. I have faith in him to stay humble and stay wit the Steelers.

If Troy improves again this year, the team will make him one of the top 3 paid safeties in the NFL, next offseason.

Troy's not going anywhere,..his honor is very important to him. Maybe even more so as opposed to Bussy's. Remeber Bettis could have left us for more cake ($) in his prime,...but he stayed. He even took paycuts to stay when he wasn't the same player he used to be,..and Troy seems to be the same way. Make no mistake,..he will be payed very well and he knows as much. But i don't think his character will allow him to to go the way of Greed. Remember him showing up and working out his rookie season without even having a deal done ? And he was the best at his position in that Draft.
