Reports circled around the league that the Steelers would potentially release the 8-time pro bowl defensive back. But Polamalu was not too content about testing the free agent market and decided to end his career where he wanted to end it. “I did not seriously consider playing elsewhere. It was just whether or not I wanted to play,” Polamalu told Scout.com.

Polamalu also went on to say:

“What it came down to was definitely family. If I’m in my fourth year, fifth year, even if I’m in my 10th year, I’m playing in Alaska. But when I started this process and started to debate whether I should come back or should I play, that was kind of the sign for me to say ‘Whoa, if you’re just even debating it maybe you shouldn’t play anymore.”

Troy Polamalu ends his very successful career with: 158 games, 32 interceptions, 12 sacks, almost 800 tackles, 15 playoff games, eight Pro Bowls, four 1st Team All-Pro selections, the 2010 AP Defensive Player of the Year Award, and two Super Bowl rings. We can almost guarantee their is a Bust waiting for him in the Hall of Fame soon.
