    Ike Taylor contract restructured

    Sorry if this is a retread of a story, it seems a few days old but worth noting.

    This is the kind of cap-shifting I want to see from the Steelers FO, other successful teams do the same. Now if they just quit paying backups $7 million, we will be fine.

    Taylor restructures contract
    Pittsburgh cornerback Ike Taylor has agreed to restructure his contract so the team had cap room to sign Rashard Mendenhall, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
    Our View: Taylor will still get the $4.1 million due to him this year, but instead of it coming in base salary, $3 million has been transferred to a signing bonus that allows the team to spread it out over three seasons.

    Good move and contrary to popular belief Ike is a very good DB.

    I think Ike is a good DB. If he catches better, he can possibly make the probowl.

    And if I ran faster, I could possibly qualify for the Olympics in the 100m dash.

    Ike is a solid DB and from all indication a good chracter individual who fits the mold of what we should all want from Steeler players.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I like Ike too, but you gotta admit that his butterfinger tendencies when trying to pick the ball off makes Nate's hands look like they are lathered with stick-um by comparison.

    But remember playing football as a kid and in high school - the fast, tall and thin guys that could catch were wide receivers. The fast, tall and thin guys that couldn't catch became defensive backs.
