Polamalu keeping contract talks quiet

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu says he feels as good as ever, he's just not saying much about his future with the defending AFC champions.

Polamalu said Wednesday contract talks with the Steelers are between his agent, Marvin Demoff, and the team. The 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year is in the final season of a five-year deal that will pay him about $6.4 million this season.

The perennial Pro Bowler has said his preference is to remain with the Steelers, but limited salary cap space could be an obstacle to getting a deal done before the season.

The Steelers have already signed linebackers Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley to lengthy extensions while several veterans restructured their deals to get Pittsburgh under the estimated $120.4 million cap.
