I honestly don't get where all this "Ike is inconsistent" talk comes from. I think he is very consistent. He consistently has tight coverage and consistently drops every ball that hits his hands. Nothing new there. He never will have good hands. I think they might ask both players to take cuts but I don't see them outright cutting either. Troy has his quickness back (although he has far too many plays where he is just in the middle of no where and that hurts the D). Ike is Ike. He's got at least one more good year.Source: CBSSports.com - Joel Corry
The Pittsburgh Steelers could consider releasing CB Ike Taylor and SS Troy Polamalu this offseason. The team would create $8.25 million in salary cap space if Polamalu was released and $7 million if Taylor was released.

Before the players are released the Steelers are likely to ask both to take a pay cut. It would be difficult to imagine Polamalu in another uniform. Steelers fans sometimes hope Taylor would be in another uniform with his inconsistent play.
