PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Yesterday, Steelers Insider Ed Bouchette told Starkey and Mueller why he doesn’t think Troy Polamalu will be back with the team next year.
Today, Kirk Larrabee of 247Sports.com took a look at the numbers when it comes to Polamalu, including his age and cap hit.

In the pro column, is a quote from safety Mike Mitchell about Polamalu and some people asking whether or not he should have been benched late in the season.
In the cons column, Larrabee points out the Steelers need to clear room in their salary cap and the amount of money they’d free up if they did part ways with their All-Pro Safety.
