Deshea is a nice complementary piece of the puzzle but Taylor is a shutdown corner and his price is not going to go down.
Ike should have been the priority and maybe keeping some of that cash in reserve for that purpose would have been money better spent.
The Steelers should have gotten Ike's contract taken care of first and then worry about Townsend.
