Default Polamalu highest-paid safety...

Troy Polamalu became the league's highest-paid safety by agreeing to a deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers that will pay him $33 million through the 2011 season.

Why is it that I feel that safety has become the most overrated position on defense, if not on either side of the ball?

To me an All-Pro safety is a luxury and not a necessity.

I think Polamalu is getting paid for what he brings to the team off the field as well though.
