Steelers to keep Polamalu
Loyalty usually isn't a two-way street in professional sports, but the case of Troy Polamalu and the Steelers may be an exception to that rule. Despite needing to create salary-cap space, the Steelers will not release Polamalu, citing the Rooney family's loyalty to the veteran safety. Polamalu has essentially been the face (and hair) of the Steelers' franchise since being drafted in 2003, and imagining him in a uniform other than Steelers black and gold is almost unthinkable. His production has been declining, however, and given that he'll be 33 this season, the Steelers might end up regretting their otherwise-admirable allegiance to one of their all-time greats.
