Speculation has been swirling since the Pittsburgh Steelers lost in the Wild Card round of the AFC Playoffs to the Baltimore Ravens. Was that the final game for players like Troy Polamalu, James Harrison, Brett Keisel and Ike Taylor?

Although Taylor and Keisel weren't active for that game, considering the legacy of these four great players, fans are wondering if this is truly the end.

Steelers' President Art Rooney II met with reporters on Wednesday and said that no decision has been made on their future. He said would be be speaking them them in the coming weeks to talk about their future within, or without, the Steelers' organization.

Few Steelers fans will likely be surprised if none of the four returns, since Harrison came out of retirement to play, Keisel and Taylor went down with serious injuries, and Polamalu and Taylor seemed visibly slowed by injury, age, or both.
