Troy Polamalu is retiring from the NFL.
Polamalu said he made the decision so he could spend more time with his family. The Steelers asked Polamalu to retire months ago to avoid the awkwardness of cutting him. The 33-year-old was a remarkable talent, appearing in eight Pro Bowls during his 12-year stay in Pittsburgh. Polamalu won two Super Bowls and was named 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Injuries marred the end of his career, but there's no doubt Polamalu is Canton bound. He was the rare (only?) safety around which a defense was built; Dick LeBeau specifically designed his defense to allow for Polamalu's highly-disruptive freelancing. Shamarko Thomas is the leading in-house candidate to replace Polamalu. Apr 9 - 10:21 PM
