Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports
After a 12-year playing career, Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu has retired. Per ESPN:

Polamalu told the newspaper on Thursday his decision to walk away from the game ultimately came down to wanting to spend more time with his wife, Theodora, and young sons, Paisios and Ephram.

"Since the end of the season I've had a chance to enjoy my family on a level that I never had before. It was awesome," Polamalu told the newspaper.

"Thank God football has provided me the ability to be able to sit back and see what the options are. But I'll definitely be the best father I can be."
