The Steelers have been negotiating with the agent for safety Troy Polamalu over the past several days, an 11th-hour attempt to sign the NFL defensive player of the year before the season begins Sunday. Polamalu is entering the final season of his contract, and their previous discussions this summer with agent Marvin Demoff went nowhere and stalled. After the Steelers signed linebacker Lawrence Timmons to a six-year, $50 million contract two weeks ago, they decided they could do no more extensions until after the season.

David Troy started tinkering with computers when he was 7 years old. In the 1980s and 1990s, he ran a company that sold Atari computers by mail in Anne Arundel County. That venture eventually morphed into ToadNet, a regional Internet service provider that was an alternative to America Online, and which he sold in 2004. Since then, the 39-year-old Johns Hopkins graduate has pursued a variety of interests and projects, including using Twitter for Election Day poll monitoring and helping to promote the technology community in Baltimore.

The Troy Park Tennis and Sports Center, a multi-use athletic park in Elkridge, was supposed to be developed enough to host a $220,000 WTA International-level event next month, but because funding did not come through as expected in December, the tournament is being moved. The Tennis Center at College Park will be the site for this year's Citi Open, formerly known as the Mid-Atlantic Women's Tennis Championship, from July 23 to 31. Meanwhile, Troy Park's developers wait for an independent economic impact study, approved by the Maryland Stadium Authority last week, before pursuing other sources of financing.

Dave Troy knows computers, social media and the power of the Internet. He is a successful entrepreneur — and one of the most influential figures in local technology circles, according to Baltimore magazine. Now he's dabbling in politics. Over the weekend, Troy posted an endorsement of Baltimore Democratic mayoral candidate Otis F. Rolley III on his personal blog, Fueled By Randomness. Rolley is a 36-year-old city planner with a master's degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who headed Baltimore's planning department and served as chief of staff under former Mayor Sheila Dixon.

A $220,000 WTA tournament will be held July 25-31 at Troy Park Tennis and Sports Center, the newly approved state-of-the-art complex being developed just off Interstate95 near U.S. 1 in Elkridge. Troy Park, a multi-use athletic park that will include 30 tennis courts, 12 of them indoor, is a seven-year dream pursued by Art Tollick, president of the Howard County Tennis Patrons. Tollick saw his dream turn to reality 26 days ago when he and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman signed a 40-year lease agreement.

Billy Cundiff's stay in Baltimore will last a little longer. The 30-year-old journeyman who ended last season as the Ravens' kicker will begin this season in the same role as Cundiff beat out 32-year-old Shayne Graham, who was cut by the team Saturday. Cundiff converted 15-of-20 field goals in 14 regular-season and playoff games last year, but the incumbent was thought to be the underdog against Graham, the fourth-most accurate kicker in NFL history who had been unceremoniously released by the Cincinnati Bengals in the offseason.

ST. LOUIS – The Ravens' 27-21 ugly preseason loss to the St. Louis Rams burst many bubbles and caused coach John Harbaugh to explode in anger. The score didn't reflect the most haphazard showing in the Harbaugh three-year era. The preseason finale at an empty Edward Jones Dome was filled with head-shaking blunders and disgraceful acts. There was Dannell Ellerbe taunting the Rams after the linebacker returned an interception for a touchdown. There was undrafted rookie Prince Miller dropping a punt inside his 10-yard line.

— Troy Smith's drama-filled run with the Ravens comes full circle at Edward Jones Dome on Thursday night. It was two years ago at this spot where an illness forced him out of the starting quarterback competition. Now, Smith is battling to remain on the team as the third string. In Thursday's preseason finale, the 2006 Heisman Trophy winner has a prime opportunity to prove to the Ravens — and the rest of the NFL — that he is a viable quarterback at this level.

Michigan cornerback Troy Woolfolk underwent surgery on his dislocated ankle and will miss the season, according to a report on the school's Web site. Woolfolk will have a year of eligibility remaining and could be back for 2011. "He's got quite a bit of rehabilitation ahead, but they don't see any reason he can't be 100 percent this time next year," coach Rich Rodriguez said on the Web site. In Woolfolk's absence, Rodriguez said as many as five true freshmen could see playing time.
