Default Ike's future and the 22nd pick overall...

Word out of Washington says the Redskins (surprise, surprise) are interested in signing restricted free agent Ike Taylor. The Steelers gave him a tender offer of $1.55 million, meaning they have the right to match Washington's offer, and if they choose not to, they get Washington's first round pick. This is No. 22 in this year's draft.

I think this puts Pittsburgh into a very interesting position. Obviously, they want Ike around (who wouldn't?), but with the way Washington has been spending money lately, one would be led to believe they are planning on offering him four times as much as the Steelers would pay.

Question is, do we keep Ike at what's going to end up being a higher dollar amount, or do they let him go and take their first-round pick?

(off-shoot question, do they use that pick on a guy like Youboty from OSU, or, perhaps, will LenDale White fall to this spot?)

well that 22nd pick was traded to the broncos i think last year. so i guess we'd have to wait, and if ike becomes a bitch after all this time the steelers stayed loyal to him and letting him grow i hope he has a career ending injury for being a hoe j/p but i hope he flops and gets bombed on every play where he gets cut and has to play in the afl

IMO, this is a no brainer. Match the offer and keep Ike. Unless we want to watch our secondary get toasted next season.

im sick of rookie cb's so no to youboty. no way he can contribute like ike did last year. 2 #1's could help (if we were rebuilding) but right now replacing starters with rookies will just set us back. would a deal like this help us move up to take lendale white? yes, but would anyone trade their #1 pick and ike taylor for him? probably not.

all i know is we better sign ben and troy polamalu up longterm. i can see snyder drooling over them already.

we have to match (which means we might overpay a bit) we get robbed if we give up ike for #22.

We are in an interesting position... But the Ike/McFadden duo just sounds too sweet to let go.

It's very unlikely for it to happen. What would happen is the Skins would offer somthing up to the Steelers and trade for him, but offering a sheet on IKE has about 5% of happening.

There's not really a point in trading for him. His set value is a first-round pick due to him being a restricted free agent. The Redskins have to give at least that, but the Steelers can't stop them from signing him unless they want to pay him that much money. If not, they get a pick.

And yes, I didn't notice that the Skins don't have a first-rounder this year. I only saw the order on NFL.com, who, for some reason, hasn't updated the draft list. My bad.

So what gives, then? The Steelers are forced to give up a player with NO compensation this year if that goes down?
