Are the steelers interested in Ty Law, they could use him in the secondary!

He killed them back in 2002....He's a big name corner, something Pittsburgh hasn't had since Woodson. He would definately help the secondary.

There have been talks between him and the Steelers. He visited at least twice. I think he failed the physical, but he may end up in Pittsburgh. He is from the area, and has said he would take less money to play for the Steelers. I am sure he would love to get us over the hump, and be the difference maker in overcoming the Patriots.

I haven't heard much about Ty Law coming to the Steelers in a while. I would love to see him come here. He would be a nice veteran addition. Still keeping my fingers crossed on it.

Plenty of other teams mentioned as remaining "in contact" so take it for what it's worth.

Steelers | Remain in contact about Law - from www.KFFL.com
Sun, 12 Jun 2005 06:00:36 -0700

Nick Cafardo, of the Boston Globe, reports the Pittsburgh Steelers have remained in contact with agent Carl Poston about free agent CB Ty Law (Patriots).

Ty Law was the big talk on this site, about a month back when he visited twice. He set up the meeting according to the Steelers. At the time he wasn`t ready to take a physical, he was suppose to start running again in May or June.

our backfield is getting awfully crowed these days w/ talent. The youth movement is definately in full swing in our secondary. That being said, if we dont have to break the bank for him, I'd love to him in the black n gold !

According to reports from the Poston Bros. a few weeks ago, Law is still expecting a good sum of money.

But he certainly has been the forgotten man of late with guys like Verba and Boulware available.

I think the drafting of McFadden pretty much rules out the signing of Law. I also think other teams will be willing to offer more to Law, even if it's just a marginal amount.

clevestinks

I agree before all the hype over McFadden , Law looked pretty good. Now I would rather see us get a safety. I think our starting CB`s will be McFadden and Coc eventually.

If we hadn't signed Willie Williams (but had drafted McFadden), I could see the usefulness of signing Law. But unless we were to cut WW (which would seem somewhat wasteful), I think we have the mentor-type.

Personally, I expect McFadden to progress faster than Colclough. I could be wrong. I think McFadden takes over WW's spot. Colclough gets his playing time in the nickel and on ST's. But I think it would be late '05 if not '06 before Colclough is a starter.

I agree Law kind of died down when the news about how well McFadden was doing started hitting the media. Law is a great player. I have to go with Blitz on this if we can get him for a reasonable price than great, but if he wants MAJOR money I say pass. I'm still really curious as to where Law stands with joining the black and gold. Maybe the media will report something soon.

He's a hometown boy, which is something we have over the other suitors he has. When you get alittle older in the NFL, and you've made alot of money so far.. playing in front of your old home town is more and more appealing.

I am very curious if the Steelers are still interested in him. I wouldn't mind him being in the black and gold for the right price. I agree with Blitz, he has made a lot of money and might be willing to take a major pay cut to play in front of his hometown. However, I like what I'm hearing about McFadden and am excited about his potential, so I don't know...it will be interesting to see where he ends up and for how much money.
Cleve...you are right though...we need get Ward's deal done 1st...to me, that is the most important thing right now!

I agree first priority should be Ward. Ward is a leader to the team and the best all around WR in the league. He has a lot of skill, heart, class, and love for the game. Finish his contract then think about Law. Need to keep Ward in the black and gold.

You would think that Ty would be eager to join a team that is already a playoff team. He could use a year to prove he is over the injury. But if he sign for veteran league min. then I say we offer that. What do we have to lose?

Prosdo
06-14-2005, 05:26 PM
Very true. I would like to see the Steelers offer him something, but not give him a HUGE amount of money. If it was between us and a few other teams I think he would go with the Steelers.Who is more likely to keep the Pats from the big game the Dolphins or the Steelers? Definitely the Steelers. From what I heard he was far from on good terms with the Pats. I think the revenge factor might come in. Plus who wouldn't want to win another Super Bowl in their career. But with our other players having so much potential we may not even offer him something. I would like to, but may not happen.

06-19-2005, 05:29 PM
There are a ton of great topics going here and I'll comment on a few here.

McFadden has every opportunity to be a starter for us, even this year. He is a little raw as far as his coverage skills because the NFL is quite different because they don't allow contact after 5 yards so I think that will be his biggest adjustment. I love his physical style and that fits perfectly with what we expect out of our DBs. He is someone that I'm very excited about.

Law is washed up for now. They guy has made his rounds, agent has called teams all year long, howver, he just isn't healthy enough to be attractive, therefore, he isn't going to be on any rosters anytime soon. When he is capable and passes a team physical, then he can contribute and be productive, but from what I'm reading, this guy isn't anywhere close to returning.

BlitzburghRockCity
06-20-2005, 10:47 PM
Law would almost be better taking the year off, working out, getting 100% healthy and trying it again next season. You may laugh, but he's not ready for anyone to be throwing any significant cash his way yet, and training camp is just around the corner.

SCacalaki
06-22-2005, 04:22 PM
JAX is bringing Law in for a workout. But I don't think they have a ton of cash to deal out. I think it would be in Law's best interest to sign a one-year deal that is incentive-heavy. If he's the same as he was before, he'll make the money. If not, he won't.

THis is from the rumormill, but I found it interesting

http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm

LAW STILL WAITING FOR PAYDAY

A league source tells us that, while several teams remain interested in acquiring the services of former Pats cornerback Ty Law, no one is offering Law anything more than the veteran minimum.

Word is that, earlier in the offseason, Law's agents told one of the teams courting the talented-but-injured cover man that there was an offer on the table averaging $6 million per year.

If there ever were such an offer (and we doubt that there was), it's long gone now.

Instead, Law is left to choose among teams like the Steelers, Dolphins, and Jaguars, Chiefs, and Browns for his next destination.

So the question becomes whether one of the interested teams will sweeten the pot a little bit in order to win his services. Our guess is that the teams will hold firm in their current offers, and wait for Law to make a selection.

And if that's where it all ends up, we predict that Law will land with the Steelers. Law grew up, after all, in the 'Burgh, and the Steelers use the 3-4 defense with which he has grown comfortable over the years. Besides, many think that the Steelers will be squaring off with the Pats again for a trip to Super Bowl XL -- and Law surely would love to be the difference maker in the game that would disrupt New England's run for an unprecedented third straight Lombardi.

Of course, if Law can be had for only a minimum deal, other teams might look to get involved. The Colts, for example, might conclude that Law could help them get over the hump against the Patriots. The Packers still need help in the defensive secondary, as do the Rams and several other NFC teams.

Heck, if Law can be had for a one-year minimum deal, why wouldn't the Tuna give him a call? It was Bill Parcells, after all, who selected Law in round one of the 1995 draft while coaching the Pats.

Interesting!...but like I said earlier...it's in a rumormill so who knows!

I am very excited about McFadden. Everything I have read about him has been positive. If we could get Law for a reasonable amount (I'm kind of doubting we could) then that would be awesome. But I really don't want to shell out a whole lot of cash on him. I rather put it towards Ward and other players and get back to working with McFadden. If he is doing as well as everyone says than with the right training and leadership from the team the guy can become a great player on the NFL level.

06-28-2005, 11:39 PM
How many more ways can it be said? Law will sign with the highest bidder. If Arizona suddenly comes out with the highest bid, suddenly the Cardianls were 'darkhorses' and he'd been interested in them for a while.

Guy has won 3 Super Bowls while never making the mega money he always desired. Money gets Law, not anything else and who can blame him? It will be his last chance it a big contract.

Couldn't disagree more. He's already won his rings. Whoever offers the most gets him IMHO. Now if the money is very close, and I mean very close, I wouldn't doubt he goes with the better chance to win, but money is the driving factor here, nothing more.

Yes. Keep in mind hed like to play with:

- Pittsburgh, as that's his hometown and they have a really good team

- NY Jets as he respects Herm Edwards

- Colts as he respects Tony Dungy

- Cleveland as he has a good relationship with Crennel

- KC as they are a great franchise and are building a contender

- Miami as they are another good franchise and he lives down there now.

- Detroit as they are building a contender

Starting to see the similarities? Though he didn't figure to be in this position, it has not changed his and especially not the Postons position. they want the mega deal. Someone may get him for this season at a 1 year deal only, but after that he's going to want that deal again.

I don't blame him at all. He's won 3 rings, and never got that mega deal. He's 31 and wants to get the last big contract of his playing days. More power to him.

6 mill a year ain't chump change. Does he think he's going to get a Brady type deal? Never happen.

In the his & the Postons mind, yes 6 million was not a mega deal. To say those guys are out of touch is an understatement. I don't think he thinks he'll get a Brady deal, but he is looking for a very good deal with an amazing signing bonus. This injury has really been a thorn in their strategy, but it hasn't stopped their desires.

He is running and cutting, though I've heard his cutting is not up to par yet. I think the reason he still hasn't signed yet is because of both he is not fully recovered yet and he hasn't seen a contract they like yet. I look for him to sign in August, when camps are in full swing and players get injured. SOmeone will take the bait after a player is injured. I don't think it will be their desired mega-deal, but he'll take the higgest offer, even if it is only for a year.

If the raiders can afford to have, or atleast consider to have TO and Moss on the same team, then its not out of the realm of possibility for a team to sign him to big bucks..there's always some goofball front office willing to break the bank on an aging, injured veteran.. :roll:

But I definately agree w/ HW though, if he is all that and a bag of chips right now, why isnt he in mini camps w/ a team?

07-04-2005, 12:38 PM
In the end, the Chiefs couldn't afford Ty Law, whom they really wanted to team up with Patrick Surtain, so they opted for 13-year veteran Ashley Ambrose to add depth. The Chiefs showed a lot of interest in Law, but with Law wanting top dollar and still just 85 percent healthy, it didn't add up. The Chiefs need a sure thing to round out a much-improved defense. Law still has the Buccaneers, Jets, Colts, Steelers, and Jaguars on hold, with offers in hand from most of them. He'll wind up at one of those places (and don't rule out the Browns), but he might have to set his salary sights slightly lower.

I think that's gonna have to be a given... I know there's always a team out there that's willing to overpay for a veteran, especially one thats aging or has had significant injury problems of one kind or another...but he's gotta be realistic here I think.

I agree. I know he wants big bucks, but he may have to take a 1 year deal and prove himself. Then ask for the big money. I know teams go a little crazy sometimes, but I don't see him getting this huge deal that he wants. He has to realize he is a veteran recovering from an injury and that means his market value goes down, even if only for a little while.

I agree, someone will sign him, but since he's only 85% I don't think it will be for what he wants (big but not that big). He has also said he won't sign a one year deal, however, I think if that is the best that is offered to him he will sign.

I don't see it as likely. He is wanting a lot of money and he is not even 100%. Hines needs to be the top priority. Law will end up elsewhere. I am not sure if it will be for the huge deal he wants or whatever, but I'm sure he'll end up somewhere.

Ty Law is a gambler back there. The reason he can gamble, and be so effective, is because he's such a great athlete. If he comes back at say 90%, will he be able to gamble as much, or will he be able to change his game, and still be as good a corner as the money he's asking for would imply? I don't know.

Say, where is Dirty Water to keep us informed on Law?

And no we dont need to take Law to win.. it would be nice to have a veteran of that talent, absolutely, but we've got a good young group in the secondary that has the potential to be something amazing in the years to come.


Cheers! :)

I second that! Our young guys have a lot of potential and I do think they will do well this year. I wouldn't mind seeing Law in the black and gold, but by no means is it necessary for us to have him to beat NE.

You guys have to be realistic, your having trouble signing Hines but you are all wanting to sign Law...It just isn't happening, he will end up somewhere where they can afford him like Oakland

I don't believe we will get Law. I just said I wouldn't mind seeing Law here. Ward is what I definitely want in the black and gold.

He should be your #1 priority....I don't know what teams cap salaries are like but I know Oakland could get him and so could Arizona...they both could use him.

I believe Hines Ward is the Steelers top priority. I know his deal is one I want to see completed ASAP.

Agreed...I to wouldn't mind seeing Law in a Steelers uniform, but I wouldn't want him there at the expense of Ward. I see this talk about Law becoming a Steeler for what they are "Rumors" but don't get me wrong...if I could have both I would take them!

Most of us would like to see Law in a Steeler uniform..but we are also realistic, in that we know we need Hines more than we need a Ty law.. in a perfect world we could sign both, but there is no way in the world the rooneys' would sign law if it mean jepordizing wards deal.

This may be his best option anyway. There is no team out there really pursuing him real hard. I want MaFadden and Coc to be our future corners. Law may disrupt our team chemistry??????

I agree it very well could be his best option. As you said no team has really went after him too much. If he was 100% I think it may have been different or atleast a little. I am excited about McFadden as well. People have been really complimenting this guy. I do think he will have a bright future with us. I am hoping Ricardo steps up his game some.

Not sure if this has been posted on this thread...if so I'll edit it. Very long thread and I've been in and out when trying to keep up.

Why not sign Law and move him to FS a la Rod Woodson? I like Hope but we certainly have little depth at safety. Stuvaints is replaceable. Logan is good...when healthy. Rumors are he might be cut before the season starts. Tyrone Carter showed some good stuff while a Viking but he's been little more than a special teams player so far. Law certainly has a nose for the ball...a regular ballhawk IMO at the corner position. He can double at corner as well.

Bring Law in as a corner, he's going to expect to start. And that may be entirely possible. Unknowns with Colclough, McFadden, and Ike Taylor. Can Willie Williams pull out another season like he did last year or does his age catch up with him in '05? Remember, Townsend had surgery this offseason.

Not a bad idea to make a run at him. But money is the barrier. And I really can't see us bringing him in at this point before we hammer a deal out with Ward. So someone else may beat us to the punch.

I heard someone from another board (a chiefs fan) say they were also talking to Law and the seal was done all Law had to do was pass the physical! Did he NOT pass the Steeler physical?

He was never given a Steelers physical. whne he visited with the Steelers he was not even close in his recovery, From waht I can remember!

Just saw Ty Law interviewed on PTI. He is definitley in it for the MONEY$$$. He is not backing down from what ever price it is that he is asking. I beleive it was DirtyWater who said that Law was all about a big payday. You were right my friend, nothing else seems to matter. Definitley not in Pittsburgh,
