Default Ike Taylor restructures contract

to help sign the draft picks. talk about a team player

Quote:
Cornerback Ike Taylor agreed on Friday to restructure his contract to create more salary cap space to help the Steelers sign their top draft pick.

Agent Scott Smith of XAM Sports confirmed that Taylor, who signed a five-year, $23.75 million extension in 2006, will reduce his base salary of $4.1 million this season by $3 million. In return, Taylor, the highest-paid cornerback in franchise history, will receive a signing bonus of $3 million that will be spread over the next three seasons on the team's books -- $1 million in 2008, $1 million in 2009 and $1 million in 2010.

By converting $3 million of Taylor's base salary into a signing bonus, the Steelers were able to free up $2 million in cap space.

no doubt this is good news that we are doing what is right to help our team be the best it can be.
now it is just time for Ike to start hanging on to some of those balls that should be intercepted so he earns that top DB $$ in steelers history.

He became the first player in team history to record interceptions in three consecutive playoff games when he picked off a pass against Jacksonville in the Steelers' 31-29 loss in the AFC wild-card game.

Three? I'd prefer two - I want a bye week.
