Troy Polamalu rarely attends the Steelers offseason voluntary practices and, as the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review points out, it's generally the most overblown story of the offseason.

Polamalu has never made any secret that he doesn’t have much use for off-season practices, most of which are voluntary. His absence from them — he attended mini camp, which is mandatory — is annually one of the most overblown stories of the spring.

Polamalu prefers to work out on his own but he returned this week to Pittsburgh for a week of practices.

It's actually great timing in his return.

On Tuesday, the Steelers players went bowling. On Wednesday, they'll have just a walk-through. On Thursday, they'll be in a lighter mood since it's the last offseason practice and Mike Tomlin generally allows them to wear funny hats on the field.

Polamalu is recovering from a knee injury that sidelined him much of the 2009 season.
