Polamalu Ready to Sign?

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that Pro Bowl strong safety Troy Polamalu is close to signing a contract extension that "likely will put him near the top among the Steelers' best-paid players." According to the report, Mr. Polamalu may sign the extension as early as Monday.

Mr. Polamalu tied for the team lead in interceptions (he and Bryant McFadden each had three), but a sore knee and adjustments in offensive planning by opponents limited his effectiveness during the second half of the season (e.g. Mr. Polamalu did not have another interception after the October 22, 2006 game versus Atlanta).

The imminent signing of a key player follows the signings of Aaron Smith and Chris Hoke to extensions, and contract controversy with Pro Bowl offensive guard Alan Faneca.
