Default Re: Steelers courting Ty Law

They say he is still at least a month from taking a physical. He has a bad foot problem they also mentioned Duce Staley as being one of ony two players that ever fully recovered from this type of injury. Staley was 24 at the time and Law is 31

If Ty Law won`t be healthy enough for a physical for at least a month, then we would be coming up on the draft, we would need to know sooner than that

its on this board somewhere, and online, I cant think of it, but it was some crazy amount in guaranteed money, and he just laughed at them. He was lookin to make as close to triple millions as a DB can make.

Default Ty Law to Meet w/Steelers again

http://www.timesonline.com/site/news...d=478568&rfi=6

PITTSBURGH - Even though the Steelers aren't in desperate need of a cornerback, there's a chance Ty Law could be playing for Pittsburgh next season.

Still hobbling on a surgically repaired foot, Law helped cheer on his alma mater Saturday in a PIAA basketball game. And as he left Duquesne University's Palumbo Center after Aliquippa's 72-70 win over Quaker Valley, Law confirmed that he plans on meeting with the Steelers again soon.

"I'm trying to stay low-key and not say too much about it," said Law, the former New England Patriots' star cornerback who was released by the Super Bowl champs three weeks ago as a salary cap casualty.

"I'm here until Monday. I have to go back and visit with the Steelers again and then I have to go make a couple more stops."

Law, a 31-year-old veteran of 10 NFL seasons, first stopped by Steelers headquarters on the South Side of Pittsburgh on Thursday. He met with coach Bill Cowher and several defensive coaches. He met with owner Dan Rooney. And he met with the Steelers' chief orthopedic surgeon, Dr. James Bradley.

Even though their top four cornerbacks are under contract - Deshea Townsend, Willie Williams, Ricardo Colclough and Ike Taylor - the Steelers are intrigued by Law and are serious about opening negotiations with Law's agents pending the outcome of more tests of Law's foot.

Law suffered a season-ending mid-foot fracture in the Patriots' loss to the Steelers on Oct. 31 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

In January, Law underwent surgery to repair ligament damage in his foot. He is still wearing a soft cast as he rehabilitates his injured foot.

Other teams that might be interested in Law's services include the Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys.

A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Law would have been a $12.5 million salary cap hit if the Patriots would have kept him. He was due to make a base salary of $8.75 million, a $1 million roster bonus plus roughly $2.75 million from his pro-rated signing bonus. Six years ago, Law signed a seven-year contract worth an estimated $51 million.

Even though they recently re-signed kicker Jeff Reed and signed former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Cedrick Wilson via free agency, the Steelers still could sign Law if they deem him healthy enough to play next year.

Because of the millions he's already made, money isn't a major issue for Law right now. He's willing to accept less money in order to play for a contender.

The Steelers might not have a lot of salary cap room (the cap this year is $85.5 million per team), but they should be contenders again next season. Last season, they went 16-2 and lost to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

Looks like he's putting forth more of an effort into this, than maybe first thought. There will be other teams that can give him more,but hopefully we have the homefield advantage w/ him, so to speak. so we'll see.

Health is the main deal here, besides the money.

I hope we can sign him for a decent salary. He would do nothing but help our secondary even if he didn't start. Maybe he could do better at safety. Guess we'll have to see how the foot is in the end.
