Polamalu Undecided About Future According to Agent

Detroit Lions v Pittsburgh Steelers

As we talked about Wednesday, the Steelers have decided that they are going to part ways with long time safety Troy Polamalu, deciding they are not going to bring him back for a 12 season.

The club is hoping that he will retire, but as of now, the safety isn’t sure about the route he wants to take for this upcoming season.

“Troy is still determining whether he wants to retire or try and play in 2015,” agent Marvin Demoff told Mark Kaboly of the Tribune-Review. “We will make a decision fairly soon, but [it is] not imminent.”

It’s a smart move for the Steelers to let Troy go before the 1st of June, as he is set to count $8.25 million against the salary cap this year, but a release before the first of June will save the team $6 million, money they can use for a new deal for Ben Roethlisberger or a free agent on the market starting next week.
