2010-11 Season
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. NFL: 12-4
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. AFC North: 5-1

The Pittsburgh Steelers recently signed their star safety to a contract extension that would keep Polamalu in Pittsburgh through the 2014 NFL Lines season. The deal is purportedly worth $36.5 million, with $10.55 million guaranteed.

In fact, the 2010 Defensive Player of the Year signed the contract at Pittsburgh International Airport right before boarding his flight to Baltimore to play the Ravens Sunday afternoon.

This contract is following a 2010 season in which Troy Polamalu excelled, finishing with 7 interceptions, 64 tackles, and one sack. Polamalu was due for an extension, as he was about to commence this season as the last year of his five year contract, which he signed with the Steelers back in 2007.

The Steelers had turned their attention to locking up the 30-year-old defensive back after they had agreed to deals with Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley, who both signed on to long-term contracts within the past few months.

En route to winning the AFC Conference Title last season, the Steelers’ defense led the NFL in scoring (232 points allowed), had the second-best opposing passer rating (73.1), and had the second-most interceptions (21) in the AFC. Most of these stats can be attributed to safety Troy Polamalu, along with the stellar play of Lawrence Timmons, LaMarr Woodley, and James Harrisson.

Messina Mention: The Pittsburgh Steelers must also complete the signing of top wide receiver Mike Wallace, who is also entering the last year of his contract, to ensure that their dynasty remains intact for several more seasons to come.
