Source: Steelers extend McFadden's contract through 2012
By Jason La Canfora | NFL Network



The Pittsburgh Steelers have extended Bryant McFadden's contract, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

The Steelers traded for the cornerback from Arizona during the draft and have extended him through 2012. He will earn $7.5 million over the three years, according to the source.

The club was in need of a cornerback and it brought back a player it knows very well.

McFadden spent the first four years of his career in Pittsburgh and was the starting cornerback on the Steelers' 2008 Super Bowl-winning team. He didn't fare so well in his lone season in the desert, finishing with 69 tackles and no interceptions.

Wow...I'm surprised. I wonder how much they will be willing to pay Taylor. I think Taylor is worth a 4 year 18 million dolar contract. That would pay him the same amount as he makes now...4.5 mil/year.

See? Who said we couldn't afford him.

I guess that's what a good dose of sucking for a year while you play on a mediocre defense that didn't win a Super Bowl will do to your earning potential.

I wonder what he turned down from the Steelers before he left.

From what I have read, the Steelers would have matched the $$$ per year from Arizona, but the Steelers wanted to sign him for 4 years.

If he turned down $20 Million over 4 years from the Steelers...talk about wanting a mulligan.
