Default How would this make you feel

Ty law and Polamalu as a safety tandem.

Could Law be the answer?

Dale Lolley - Scout.com

At 32, Ty Law could be ready to make a position switch similar to the one Rod Woodson made to prolong his career.

The New York Jets released Aliquippa native Ty Law Wednesday as part of a salary cap purge.

That was the bad news for Law.


The good news is that even at 32, the 11-year NFL veteran has some options, one of which could prolong his career another three or four seasons.

Just as Rod Woodson did after leaving the Steelers, Law should be convinced that the best way to play another three or four seasons and assure his status as an NFL Hall of Fame player would be to shift from cornerback to free safety.

Though his coverage skills are slipping, Law showed in 2005 that he is still a ballhawk by recording a career-high 10 interceptions, giving him 46 for his career.

Where would Law end up as a free safety?

The Pittsburgh Steelers would certainly be interested, especially considering their own starting free safety, Chris Hope , is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next week.

Law signed with the Jets last year after visiting with the Steelers, a move that could lay some of the groundwork for the Western Pennsylvania native to come home. He knows the Steelers, they know him.

If he wants to take a couple of more runs at the Super Bowl - he already owns three Super Bowl rings from his days with New England - Pittsburgh would be the place to do it.

I personally do not want to see Ty Law sporting a B&G jersey. His age and past problems being the two main reasons.

First it was Jamal Lewis.

Then it was Ricky Williams.

Then Edge.

Now it's Ty Law.

For the most part, it's not the Steelers way of doing business. How often do we go out and sign a big name FA? It's not going to happen IMO. I would be very surprised If any of the players mentioned above are on this teams roster next year.

Yup, agree 83...I NEVER want to see the Steelers become a "Win at any cost with any player" type of team. I've learned to respect the integrity and honor of the Rooney's and their franchise over the years, and I never want to see those things stripped away.

Ok, maybe I'm ignorant to this, but what has Ty Law done that has deemed him "non Steeler" material? I understand being considered a "big" free agent, but thats out the window in my book because they brought him in for interviews twice last year....so obviously they had interest.

Well, as I stated above, what he has done off the field is only one of three reasons why I would not consider him steeler "material and also why I don't see the Steelers signing him this offseason. But if you would like to focus on his off-field antics here you go........

For his X-bust: http://www.espn.go.com/nfl/news/2000/1220/964027.html

For his foot chase in Miami: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=1785289

This is priceless...............According to police, Law told the two officers "not to touch him because he is a professional athlete.". Classy, real classy.

I don't want some guy in our secondary that can't outrun your average law enforcement officer.
