Rumors circulating that Ty Law will be released by the Chiefs. This blurb was posted over at ProFootballTalk.Com, "CHIEFS TO CUT LAW. A league source tells us that the Kansas City Chiefs soon will be releasing veteran cornerback Ty Law. Law, 33, was cut by the Patriots in February 2005. He played for the Jets that year, and then signed with the Chiefs in 2006. Signed through 2010, Law is due to earn a base salary of $6.5 million in the coming season." Now, seeing as though Anthony Smith sucks so far in coverage, and Ryan Clark is still recovering from a serious health issue, it's my opinion that we take the Aliquippa boy home to the 'Burgh and have play a little FS ala Rod Woodson. Everyone has seen it done. Whether it was Ronnie Lott, Rod Woodson, Jason Sehorn, or Aneas Williams they were all CBs that made the move to FS/SS in an effort to extend their careers. Ty Law should be ready to make that move. He's a heady vet that knows how the exact way secondary play should be done. I say bring him in a 3-4 year deal as the starting FS and help solidify that defensive backfield.....

Smith isnt the fastest safety ...but can outrun Law backwards. Law was great...lets let him go quietly into the night....preferably in someone elses colors.

Lets create 10 thousands post on players we do not need are who are over the hill are who do not even fit to are system. Thank God the coach knows we need to get younger and not bring in relics.

Tom Donahoe? Is that you? It has to be, after all that's the exact same thing he said when he allowed Rod Woodson to go, only to watch him switch positions and go to another 3 or 4 more Pro Bowls. All we need now is to have some suggest we bring a former player back like Randle El and then you can say "We are not the Salvation Army" and I'll be positive you're Tom Donahoe.....:kick:

good idea by switching him to FS but i'd rather have him as a nickel CB... i trust ryan clark to get the job done and to come back healthy... it's our 3rd CB after deshea and ike that i'm questioning... no diss to mcfadden but other than that INT return for a TD this season i rarely saw him...

chad scott was my favorite defensive back when he played for the steelers, he was basically released because they didnt think he could play anymore, he was around 30 at the time, ty law is what 33, 34...there is no way in hell he will be signed.

Sure! Can we also hire Kim Jong-il as the Steelers ombudsman? Osama bin Laden can sing the National Anthem, and then we can have neo-Nazi skinheads come out and perform at halftime next year, too. The Steelers can also hire a Satanic Priest to say the prayer (to Satan, of course) before each game. I mean, if you're going to go for it, why not go for it all?

Woodson was one out of a hundred that the decision to let him leave didn't pan out, and at the time it was correct; he was coming off two sub-par seasons in a row and his health was questionable. Too bad the crystal ball couldn't see the future as well as you can see the past, huh? The Steelers' track record for ditching guys when they've peaked is pretty close to perfect, IMO.

I agree 100% with Chrono; all the guys suggested are the guys who we would let go if we had them, too.

You take the team of old rejects, and I'll take whatever team we actually field, and my team will mop the field with yours. I'll even let you have Faneca and Starks.

I didn't want Law a few years back when he hit the FA market and rumors were circulating that he would take one of those infamous "hometown discounts" that a good number of fans feel players will automatically take just because they are from Pittsburgh or Western Pennsylvania.

I said no then and I say no now.

I've already read a call for the return of Wayne Gandy.....now Ty Law.

Sign both and we can start a Steelers Fever Death Poll next season. Just an idea.

Yeah, I'm so glad he had 10 INTs for some other team that season.... :toofunny:
I say he can convert to safty and contribute probably better than what we have. He's a potential H.O.F.er who has the talent to make the switch. BUT only if he takes a cut! :cheers:

I wouldnt use that one season where he had 10 interception as a ruler. That was the most he ever had. He has averaged 4 interceptions per year in his career

The Chiefs let him go after he lost a step due to a foot injury and surgery in 2005 that continues to bother him.

Also keep in mind that he doesnt fit the Steelers preference for players who stay out of trouble. This is the same dude who was driving down the wrong side of the road in Florida....was flagged down by a police officer.... initially pulled over, but then sped off, prompting the officers to chase him until he stopped again....The officers then told Law to put his hands behind his back, and he "became agitated" and ran... leading the police on a foot chase through a popular nightclub district in Miami Beach....when they caught up with him he demanded they "not touch him because he was a professional athlete".

The Steelers need to look to the future .. They are not one player away from the super bowl .Yes get younger and faster.

Oh that's right, I forgot about that season.

Now was that the season before or after the first time he was arrested by U.S. Custom agents up in Niagra Falls, NY for ecstasy possesion?

or...

Was it around the second time he was arrested down in Miami when he led police on a foot chase after being pulled over in his Rolls-Royce? Telling the police not to touch him because "I am a professional athlete".

Yeah, no idea what the Rooney's were thinking by not jumping on that FA at the time, but hey, he's hitting 34 and he has a bum foot. I'm sure the Rooney's will take a nice long look at him this time around. Afterall, the Rooney's are known for going after aging, injury plagued players with past run-ins with the law. I'm sure they will get right on it.:coffee:

You guys are right. I don't know what I was thinking. Older vets can't ever help a team. Who would want any older guys like Junior Seau, Kyle Brady, Rodney Harrison, or even Randy Moss. They don't really add anything to a team. What we need is a roster full of young guys fast guys that don't know their coverage responsibility and let WRS run right by them for TDs. You know, guys like Anthony Smith.....

Are you really putting Kyle Brady and Randy Moss in the same category???
C'mon!!

Since you seem intent on providing the Patriots roster as an example, perhaps it would be appropriate to also add how the patriots will owe $85 million to just a handful of players if they hope to keep their team together.
They sold out their future for a "One or Done" season....did they make it to the Super Bowl?...sure. But they lost, and they are now scrambling to hold the team together.

Naw...I wouldnt use THAT roster as an example of how to build a team. It hurts your arguement much more than it helps it.

From PFW insider:

Team insiders say that an infusion of youth is needed in the Chiefs’ CB corps. For as great as his career as a whole has been, 34-year-old Ty Law no longer has the speed to be considered an elite player. Once boasting the physicality and recovery speed to be a premier bump-and-run corner, Law now cheats further off the line to help mask his diminishing ability. Fellow starting CB Patrick Surtain will be 32 by the time training camp opens and also has seen a regression in ability.

Guess you should be hired by a NFL team "genius"...since you know more than the coaching staff and NFL scouts do.
If there is one thing that we notice on this board...those who feel the need to call names when people disagree with them....dont last long.

Hey Tooth, I agree with you on the point of not bringing him in as a corner. He doesn't have the speed any more. But why not as a safety? He obviously can still make reads and probably can cover from that position?

02-18-2008, 08:52 PM
No, No, and No. Ty law, unless brought in as a reserve, is not a help to us. Every time this guy is available, these post come up about him.

We need to get some younger guys in here who can play. We aren't going to get better bringing aging, slow veterans to play the secondary. I know..I know...Rod Woodson converted to safety about this age. This guy is no Rod Woodson.

He wouldnt be worth the pricetag....and if we really wanted a safety...lets go after one either in the draft or FA that isnt dealing with a chronic foot injury.

We could probably get Atogwe or Bell cheaper thatn Law..and they are both legit Safeties already.

Actually, the main reason Woodson left was because the coaching staff wanted him to switch to safety and he didn't want to. So your theory about Woodson is way off.

It took Woodson a few more years to realize he wasn't up to being a CB anymore.

"Steelers set to kick off, and here it goes, its caught at the 2 yard line, coming toward the near sideline WOOOOO what a hit by Ty Law. Great tackle and hit by the veteran. You know Jim, since Ty Law has been signed on to the Steelers as a Special Teams player, as well as Dan Morgan, they haven't had any coverage issues. It seems they did truly address one of their "flaws" from last year. Great pick up signing Ty Law to little money to cover kicks for them. Dan Morgan of coarse is out for 8 weeks with a concussion, but Ty has really helped their coverage units. "

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not but Ty Law isn't going to be covering any kicks in the Burgh and he damn sure isn't going to play anywhere for "little money"

Ty Law may be a lot of things but one thing he is for sure is a capitalist, he'll retire before he plays for small $.

I LOVE Insert Name!!! he would be a steal at the right price!!! If I'm not mistaken he ran an Insert Speed at the combine and could really help our Insert Position corps!!!

Sorry Insert Poster, but I think that he is much better than Insert Current Player and could probably rack up Insert Stats this year.

I LOVE John Kuhn!!! he would be a steal at the right price!!! If I'm not mistaken he ran an John Kuhnat the combine and could really help our John Kuhn corps!!!

Sorry John Kuhn, but I think that he is much better than John Kuhn and could probably rack up John Kuhn this year.

John Kuhn, please feel free to move this if it belongs in another forum.

This team needs as many thugs and over the hill players as possible. That is key. It has worked for the Raiders and it has worked for the Bengals.

Hey, that's all that matters. Plus, I'm sure with the "I found God" factor that every inmate seems to find all of sudden, he will be set.

Sorry Insert Poster, but I think that he is much better than Insert Current Player and could probably rack up Insert Stats this year.

Kansas City coach Herm Edwards said the Chiefs have shut the door on free agent cornerback Ty Law returning.

?We?re going in a different direction, and Ty knows that,? Edwards said. ?We had a great conversation at the end of the season. He knew at the end of the season we were probably going in this direction.?

I know he's 34, but he HAS to be an upgrade over our current CB situation. The question is:
1. Does he have a year or two left in him?
2. Do we have the cap room to sign him?

What do you all think?

I don't see what the big problem is with our CB situation. Ike seems to be back to 2005 form and although Townsend is slowing down I don't think that Law is that much better than him now or BMac for that matter. Don't forget we had the third best pass defense last season without a pass rush and with a depleted secondary.

:uhh:

ain't gonna happen

I know he's 34, but he HAS to be an upgrade over our current CB situation.

in experience, sure, but not necessarily a better overall player

we have townsend as our old and experienced guy, we need to get younger on the secondary

and he's looking for tons of cash, and the steelers won't give him that

I wouldn't trade any of our CB's for Ty Law and that includes Gay. He's too old and too slow.

If anything, Ty Law will make the switch to FS for 3 seasons and finish his career. I'll pass.

The only reason a team would sign law is if they had no veteran CB to show some rooks the ropes. He is no longer a shutdown corner. You don't sign a free agent like law to play you sign him to teach.
