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.
always been a big ike taylor fan.
happy he gets to stay.
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.

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.

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.
Yep...that is a terrific number.
