Good Bull from Troy Polamalu

These tweets from Bruce Feldman confirm what we previously heard about Troy Polamalu covering funeral expenses for Texas A&M's Polo Manukainiu.

Texas A&M defensive lineman Polo Manukainiu and his younger brother Andrew "Lolo" Uhatafe were tragically killed in a car accident in 2013. I later heard that Pittsburgh Steelers' safety Troy Polamalu covered the funeral expenses, and Bruce Feldman's tweets this evening verify the story. Gig 'em and God bless, Troy. Even though you just retired, you have a lot of new fans in Aggieland.

Update: Bruce Feldman posted a great story with more detail, including a response from Polo's uncle.
