Polamalu and Steelers Having 11th Hour Extension Talks Before Season Begins

The Post-Gazette reports today that the Steelers are talking money again with safety Troy Polamalu. They state that they may end up trying to get him locked up before the season starts, that now being four days away.

Pittsburgh may yet show Troy Polamalu the money. The Steelers have been negotiating with [Polamalu] over the past several days, an 11th-hour attempt to sign the NFL defensive player of the year before the season begins Sunday. Polamalu is entering the final season of his contract, and their previous discussions this summer with agent Marvin Demoff went nowhere and stalled. After the Steelers signed linebacker Lawrence Timmons to a six-year, $50 million contract two weeks ago, they decided they could do no more extensions until after the season. Last week, however, team president Art Rooney had a change of heart and decided to give it one last shot.
