This is just a rumor, don't want to get anyones hopes up.....No links on the article.....


An anonymous source has revealed the Steelers and Troy Polamalu are very close to agreeing to an 5-6 year extension that would make Polamalu the games highest paid safety. The deal is believed to include a 17 million signing bonus and a 5 million bonus due on march 1st, 2008. The only minor issue that needs to be worked out is the backend of the contract.


More to come?????

In order to be the highest paid safety in the league his contract will have to top Ed Reed's contract of.....seven-year deal worth $40 million, which includes $13 million in bonuses in the first year of the contract. Thats around 6.5 million per year!!!

You never know, his personality as a class act has nothing to do with his contract. Its still a business and if he wants to demand top dollar its well within his rights. He does deserve it, so we'll see what happens.

Well very cool to hear that.....I didn't think the Steelers would give him that type of contract mentioned in that rumor.....But props to the Rooney's if its true for rewarding Troy with that kind of money.....Hey I think all pro athletes are vastly over paid but if they don't complain about their contracts then I don't care if they get the money...So far Troy has been a class act and great player so show him the money.....lol

Its not like the Rooney's don't have the coin to pay their players....lol The Rooney's have so much money its not even funny....lol Just watch the cap thats all....We need Troy locked up for sure.....Now if Ben rebounds and kicks *** like I know he will this year then we have to lock him up to.....

If this is all true then I'll be doing cartwheels the day he's inked to a long term deal. This is a guy that we gave up a lot for to move up and draft him in the 1st round and he's everything we hoped he'd be and more. I hope he retires a Steeler.

Dude I will be so happy.....Troy is one of my favorite players....He needs to be locked up.....Shocked the Steelers would give him that high of a signing bonus if the rumor is true.....But maybe the Rooney's are getting with the times of today's NFL......:tt02::tt02::tt02::tt02:

........fingers crossed they can do this and still take care of Ben and others like Willie Parker down the road. Hey.......trust in the Rooney's, right??

LOL!! This is just going to cause Faneca to short circuit........!!!

a big signing bonus and lower salary would be the way to go

yeah I don't think Joey Porter and Polamalu left that would be redonkulous. And even if we didn't give him a contract of big bucks he'll sign anyway cause he's that kind of player

Great news. I like the big signing bonus, that should help our cap situation and put us in good position to resign Ben within the next year.

Troy is an integral part of our defense. He is the player that the opposing QB must always account for and know where he is on the field.
I am a huge fan of his and would LOVE to see his deal finalized ASAP.

He'll be the highest paid safety tis year ...the bonus they gave Ward last season raised the bar for the bonuses the Rooneys will have to give out. :tt02::tt02:
