Steelers' safety Troy Polamalu is retiring from the NFL according to the Uniontown (PA) Herald-Standard. The 33-year-old said he made the decision so he could spend more time with his family.

Polamalu played 12 seasons, all in Pittsburgh. He won two Super Bowls during that time and was named 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. If injuries didn't rob him of games throughout his outstanding career, he could have further cemented his legacy as one of the best safeties to have ever play in the league. Even so, he's certainly to land in the Football Hall of Fame.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Steelers are currently 25/1 to win the 2016 Super Bowl.
