The Steelers all wore Jerome Bettis’ jersey on their way down to Detroit in 2006, and then the Bus retired after the game.
The Steelers offensive line all wore Flozell Adams’ jersey on their way down to Dallas last week, and there was some thought Adams would retire after the game if the Steelers won.
In the moments after a crushing defeat, Adams wasn’t sure what he would do next season.
“This game just finished so we will worry about next year when the time comes,” he said via the Beaver County Times.
Adams is due $5 million next year after making $2.5 million in 2010. There’s almost no chance the Steelers will pay Adams that money, but he showed in 2010 he still had some gas left in the tank.
Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said during the week Adams was as consistent as any lineman on the team and they don’t know what they would have done without him.
If Adams is comfortable in a “swing tackle” type role, he should have the option to make another run at a title next season.
