Pittsburgh Steelers Rumors: Troy Polamalu To Be Released in 2014?
The Pittsburgh Steelers are in the midst of a very disappointing season. As much as some fans didn’t want to believe that 2013 would be a transitional year for the storied franchise, that’s been the case so far. The Steelers lost several key pieces over the offseason and overall, the team is just aging. It’s because of that reality, that many rumors have started about some of the key players in Pittsburgh.
Most notably, Ben Roethlisberger has found himself in trade rumors over the past week. The quarterback came out and vehemently denied wanting out of Pittsburgh, but even with his comments, you can’t rule out the possibility of him leaving town in 2014.
Now, Troy Polamalu has become the latest Steeler to find himself in 2014 rumors. In the case of the Pro Bowl safety, the rumors are in regards to his release. At 32-years of age, Polamalu is clearly not the same player he once was and certainly not the same guy who won Defensive Player of the Year back in 2010. Some have even gone to the extreme of calling him a ‘liability’ in pass defense.
The rumors of Polamalu getting dropped in 2014 aren’t just coming from fans on the internet, either. Ian Rappoport is reporting that Polamula and Ryan Clark are going both going to have to play ‘incredibly well’ in the final games of 2013 to save their jobs.
If the Steelers decide to release Polamalu next spring, they’ll save themselves about $5.6 million in cap space.
