All the posts focus on Ike going to the Redskins, but the team with $$$ under the cap and a crying need for defensive backs is the Patriots.

Patriots are shedding the older players from the Super Bowl run (Adam Vinatieri to the Colts - Good God!) and have a lot of money with which to to reload.

couldnt agree more. i think ike taylor and eric moulds could solve 2 of their most glaring needs, at a relatively cheap price. dont think their front office doesnt think the same. i think the steelers make an offer ike cant refuse if someone offers him a contract.

A first round pick is a relatively cheap price? In the NFL, first-round picks are worth more than just about anyone. I guess it really all depends on what New England will have to offer Ike to make Pittsburgh not match it (read: Vikings deal with Hutchinson). The Patriots are like the Steelers in the sense they don't go after moves like signing restricted free agents. They prefer to build their team almost solely through the draft. I don't think they'll really chomp at the bit to give up a first round pick to sign a player. Just doesn't really seem to be the way they do things.

I think right now a better perspective is going to be what Pittsburgh is going to have to spend to retain Ike after this upcoming season.

relative to what they would be getting if a cb is what theyre going after with their 1st pick. with ike they would get a proven commodity with low miles, a ton of upside, who has prefomed on the greatest stage and against 4 of the top offenses in the playoffs.

atlanta got j. abraham relatively cheap with their 1st round pick.

but i definitely agree with your post.

Ike got $206,513 in performance based pay this year as a bonus from the league... Former Pitt standout Petitti recieved the most, almost as much as his pay check.
