Polamalu, Miller Sign New Deals

These two players have been roster centerpieces for a long time.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed S Troy Polamalu and TE Heath Miller to new contracts.

Polamalu has been with the Steelers since he entered the NFL in 2003. In 2013, the 32-year old started all 16 regular season games. He tallied 69 combined tackles, 2.0 sacks, five forced fumbles, and two interceptions, respectively.

Miller has also been a Pittsburgh lifer thus far. The 31-year old started his NFL career in 2005. In 2013, he started 14 regular season games. He tallied 58 receptions, 593 yards, and one touchdown, respectively.

Miller and Polamalu have played in three Super Bowls; winning two and losing one.

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport noted that Polamalu’s contract is a pay cut.

Both veterans have been integral to Pittsburgh’s success in the past, and their leadership is crucial in the transition phase to a younger roster.
