Default Re: Wexell's twittering he's hearing "good" things about resigning Taylor

I know there is a lot of angst about not taking a CB in the first round, but it is not as if the Steelers passed on the equivalent of Darelle Reavis, Deion Sanders, and Mel Blount with the 31st pick the other night

Steelers would need to re-sign Taylor even if they had struck gold at CB the other night

Taylor is a good but not elite CB - good but not elite draws a lot of $$ these days on the NFL open market - to make budget for Taylor I would not be surprised to see no effort to bring back Colon and for Aaron Smith to be "requested" to take a haircut on the last year of his contract

In terms of big $$ contracts, the looming issue is whether to sign Timmons or Woodley to long term deals after 2011 - Steelers cannot afford both unless Harrison is gone after 2011
