Polamalu Signs Long Term Extension

Breaking news just in, as Troy Polamalu has signed a long term extension with the Steelers.

According to Ed Bouchette of the Post-Gazette, the deal is 5 years for $33 million, and a team record of approximately $15 million in bonuses. This is close to Ed Reed's 6 year, $44 million deal with $15 million up front signed with the Ravens last summer.

It's a big commitment, but I'd rather them drop this kind of cash on a 26 year old stud safety than a guard over the age of 30.

Clearly everyone is working very hard at their jobs today, what with all the Steelers afternoon updates.
