I'm curious about the financial side of the deal.

Interesting. I thought they'd target Ike before Parker.

But it's hard to second guess the SB Champs.

They probably wanted to work Ike's deal first but double digit signing bonuses are hard to hammer out!

i think they needed to go ahead and get some other deals done since it is not going anywhere with IKE.. no reason to wait and is excellent news to hear for the Steelers and for Willie !!!!! Nice to see someone such as him get a chance like this !! is great, and maybe this will turn the heat up on Ike. no way should or is Ike going to get more than parker.. i think is a steal to get a guy who SHOULD have 1200 yards a year in rushing and around double digit TD's with some receiving yardage in there as well locked up for four years. Really, with some of the cuts that will be coming and a couple guys gone next year... this was a bargain i think.
