Rooney II Wants Polamalu To Retire A Steeler

Tennessee Titans v Pitsburgh Steelers

During a 30-minute conference call on Wednesday, Steelers president Art Rooney II said he wants safety Troy Polamalu “to retire a Steeler,” just as he wants quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to do, Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports.

Polamalu is scheduled to make $8.25 million in 2014 in the final season of his contract, with a salary cap charge of $10,887,500.

“How we structure or restructure (Polamalu’s contract) is something we will look at in the next few months,” Rooney said. “There are a lot of pieces to the puzzle, but I certainly expect Troy will be one of the pieces to that puzzle. … He’s obviously been one of the great Steelers of all time.”

Polamalu, who made the Pro Bowl this season, said last month the Steelers hadn’t discussed his future.
