Thread: Looks like Ike is staying

  1. #11
    At this point it looks like this team is very comfortable right now WRT the cap. Excellent job so far by the FO.

    Glad he's back at a discounted rate.

    He's just simply not worth 10 million / year. The Steelers knew it and apparently Ike finally realized it.

    Fact is, he's still the #1 CB on this team until he's replaced. And what's on the market isn't significantly better than him.
    Ike's been a number 1 CB on this team for a lot of years. Didn't play like one last year. I hope he proves me wrong, and returns to form for the next year or so.

    Great news for both. He is obviously smarter than Harrison was.
    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!

    No doubt.. the sad thing is...Harrison really could have helped us last year. Heck...even could have helped us this year with the way things are going.

    This is a good move for the team. Saves the team $$ and brings back a player who still has something left and meets a need.

    And he has always been the consummate pro. Stays in phenomenal shape. Never a second of trouble or controversy. I'm glad he'll call it a career with the Steelers. Now if he could just find his damn hands...

    Ike Taylor agrees to new contract with Steelers

    Posted by Michael David Smith on March 10, 2014



    Ike Taylor will remain in Pittsburgh.

    Taylor, the veteran cornerback who was considered a possible cap casualty, announced on Twitter that he will be staying with the Steelers. He is presumably agreeing to a pay cut to give the Steelers some cap relief.

    In announcing the new deal, Taylor referred to himself as a “lifer” who plans to retire playing for the Rooney family and for longtime defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.

    Taylor, who will turn 34 in May, joined the Steelers as a fourth-round draft pick out of Louisiana-Lafayette in 2003. He started all 16 games for the Steelers in 2013.

    Pay cut. Base of 2.75 mil in '14. I'm Ok with that.
