    Steelers not expected to bring back Ike Taylor

    Steelers not expected to bring back Ike Taylor

    Submitted by Dana Draper on January 27, 2015



    According to Larry Hartstein of CBSSports.com, the Pittsburgh Steelers are likely to pass on re-signing soon to be free agent cornerback Ike Taylor.

    Taylor, 34, sustained several injuries during the 2014 and had 16 tackles in five games.

    The cornerback has been with the Steelers for his entire 12-year career.

    I agree with both statements.

    I hope that Ike remains involved in the team in some capacity, but not as a player.

    He was a solid #2 CB.

    That should tell you how our secondary has been of late.
    Don't think we have had a solid #1 shutdown corner for a long time now.

    It was only a matter of time...finally has happened. He played with swag but age and time caught up to him. Maybe he can retire and come back as an assistant secondary coach like Porter with the linebackers.
    R1- David Njoku, TE; Miami (FL)
    R2- Tyus Bowser, OLB; Houston
    R3- Josh Jones, S; North Carolina State
    R3- Brad Kaaya, QB; Miami (FL)
    R4- Cam Sutton, CB; Tennessee
    R5- Marlon Mack, RB; South Florida
    R6- Jaylon Myrick, CB; Minnesota
    R7- Javancy Jones, OLB; Jackson State

    Look at the work that Ike did against guys like Chad Johnson and even AJ Green. Ike was absolutely a #1 CB; he couldn't catch or get turnovers, but he routinely covered the oppponent's #1 and did a great job until age caught up with him.

    To me he did do this, but for a year or two. He was to inconsistent to be a conisidered a shut down corner over the length of his career. He will be missed though.

    It sad that the final image we had of Ike was him getting absolutely torched by AJ Green. When you stay to long, you end up tarnishing your own legacy. I hope Troy gets out now before he has to suffer a similar tarnishing.

    He didn't "tarnish" his legacy. It happens to nearly every great player eventually.
