i liked what ike had to say to the media the past month or so and i took his comments to be genuinely sincere. hes smart enough to know he could probably have gotten $30-40 million from the partiots or redskins after this season. like he said though he wants to be a steeler and told his agent to get it done.

im not worried about getting ben and troy signed. it will happen. look at the many mega deals the bengals, seahawks, colts, redskins have been able to sign. hell the seahawks offered deion branch a mega deal after shelling out about $40 million for burleson. the steelers are much more fiscally responsible.

the futures so bright i gotta wear shades

I hope uses some of that money and buys some crazy glue for his hands. lol

Great news he is locked up for 5 years. Even great that the Steelers are retaining their key pieces.

At 22.5 million and a $6.4 million signing bonus, I'd consider this a steal for the Steelers. It's refreshing to see an athlete actually back up his words with his actions. Great job by both sides to get this deal done!

I am elated that both sides met in the middle to get Ike signed! Kudos to Ike and the Steelers FO for working together to seal the deal!

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

I think Joey Porter is going to be the odd man out in all this. He's getting up there in age and isn't worth what he thinks hes worth.

Wow... great new. I'm still too bummed about Ben.

It's all about the signing bonus these days. The players understand the team's situation with the cap, so it's all about getting that lump of cash. Great news, though. Our secondary won't be hurting anytime soon.

Agreed - I figured that's how this scenario would play out. The money they would save from Porter's departure will then be used to extend Troy next year, and the money from Hartings' eventual retirement would then be used to extend Ben the following season. Things are looking good all around as far as maintaining the core of the team, at least for now.
