Alright now. Good move. I want Willie in the Black and Gold as long as he is a good back. Way to go Steelers FO.

A four year deal before he goes over the 1500 yard mark and wants more. Good Deal!

Really, with some of the cuts that will be coming and a couple guys gone next year... this was a bargain i think.
I got your general message, well said, but Ike will get more than Parker. An eight digit signing bonus is what we are looking at, if not with the Steelers then some other team. Sorry but I think Pittsburgh is going to shell out the $$$ or give him up. This year Taylor could play his way right out of Pittsburgh, if he has an outstanding year of course.

well of course another team can pay him all they want, i was referring to THe Steelers and i dont think they are going to pay or give Taylor more than they did Ward.. and i think Taylor should get right around what Parker did ..MAX.. the Steelers are not gonna fall for the Larry Brown syndrome so many teams fall into.. let someone else do it

I'm happy to see Willie get locked up long term to a reasonable deal.

Question to consider: would you cut Deuce now, before the season, if it meant you'd have the cap space to sign Ike to a 5-year deal?

Based on what I've seen, absolutely. Verron Haynes is da man.

this is out of the blue like last year when it was all about ward and hampton was suprised by an unexpected extension.

dont ask and ye shall receive.

this has to be looked at as a good deal. compare willie and last years rookie of the year, cadillac williams in their 1st year starting. we know caddilac is on a hefty top 5 draft pick contract. sure willie gives up an inch and about 10 lbs., but he lasted for 15 games. carnell only started 14. willie averaged more than a half a yard a carry more, on less touches. 1202 to 1178 yards. willie had 140 more yard receiving on only 2 more catches. willie has as much upside as any back in the league short of reggie bush. willie is nomore likely than any other back in the league to get hurt. just ask jamal anderson, terrel davis, or clinton portis.

and finally willie has less mileage on him than anyone else. he is ready to tote the rock! did i mention hes pretty quick?

"There is NO substitute for speed" and.... "that boy is FAST!"

"Did he even get touched?!"

He deserved the contract, and he looked great in camp. The Rooneys rewarded him, and I'm proud they did, because he was huge last year & has only upside.

Good signing at the right price...it won't break the bank. Ike is gonna have to play his way to an 8 figure bonus unless that butthead in Washington likes him... then he might get nine!!!
