The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's "best guess" is 2014 will be SS Troy Polamalu's final NFL season.

It's an interesting projection after the Steelers signed Polamalu to a new three-year, $20 million contract in March, though that same deal considerably lowered his salary cap number. Polamalu is under contract for 2015 and 2016 at reasonable base salaries of $6 million and $5.75 million, respectively. Now 33 years old, Polamalu finished 2013 as a top-five safety per Pro Football Focus.

Owner Art Rooney II has made it his "goal" to ensure SS Troy Polamalu retires as a Steeler.

Pittsburgh could save $8 million under the salary cap by releasing Polamalu, but Rooney's comments indicate that won't even be a consideration, for better or worse. Polamalu turns 33 in April and has an $8.25 million base salary. He's increasingly become a deficient coverage safety. Polamalu did play a full 16-game season in 2013, forcing seven turnovers with a 19-yard pick six.
