Wow, this is excellant. The contract probably has alot of incentives, like, for instance, if Ike gets hit in the hands by the ball 10 times this season with no Interceptions, he's to be tarred and feathered and traded to the Browns.

Steelers, Ike Taylor agree to five-year deal
Sunday, September 03, 2006

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers today signed cornerback Ike Taylor to a five-year contract worth $22.5 million. It includes a $6.4 million signing bonus and erases fears that they might lose him as a free agent after this season.


The deal came four days before the club's self-imposed deadline to end all contract negotiations until the end of the season, and three days after Taylor told reporters he thought something might get done.


By extending Taylor's contract, the Steelers have no starters eligible for unrestricted free agency in 2006. Starting right tackle Max Starks will be their only restricted free agent if he does not sign a new contract before free agency starts in March.


The deal comes one week after they signed halfback Willie Parker to a four-year, $13.6 million contract with a $3.75 million signing bonus.


Taylor, a fourth-round draft choice from Louisiana-Lafayette in 2003, became their starting left cornerback at the start of last season. His 25 passes defensed led the NFL, but he acknowledged dropping about 10 interceptions. He did catch three, one during the regular season and two in the playoffs, including a big one in the Super Bowl.


Taylor, 26, has the rare combination for a cornerback of size and speed. He stands 6 feet 1, weighs 191 and can run with the better receivers in the league.


He led the Steelers with 10 tackles in the 2005 opener and continued his physical play throughout the season, finishing with 72 solo tackles, fourth on the team.


"He gets his hands on a lot of balls, has a lot of knockdowns,'' Dolphins coach Nick Saban said. "I think their two corners are really smart in how they play, and they're not easy to beat."

The Steelers will never be able to sign Taylor!

John Kuhn is the next Mike Alstott!

We will never win the Superbowl without Plaxico or with Cowher!

Well I can't say I was exactly optimistic before today. Not many were if you heard the rumored "8-10 million dollar bonus" that Ike's agent was pulling for. On top of that the future resignings of Ben and Polamalu and recent resigning of Willie Parker. Plus the fact that the opener is four days away and the FO doesn't negotiate during the season.

Personally, I think it was perfectly understandable to have doubts about this situation.

As for your Kuhn, Plaxico and Cowher statements.........I agree.

Ike and his agent got smart and took the guaranteed money now like Parker did .. lets just hope it works better than the Chad Scott situation.

Great news - $6.4 million signing bonus is in the real world as opposed to what the agent was allegedly seeking - Ike definitely gave a home team discount

Next up is Troy before 2007 season

Sad to say something has to give and it may be some O-line signings (plus Joey P.) in the next several years
