if they were serious about Ike, they should've offered El a few less million, IMO. Ike would've been money more well-spent. not that El isn't a good player, but I don't think he's worth the kind of money they put up for him

Not sure what name I called you here...or even what idea you presented. Perhaps if you wrote it at a level easy to recognize by someone with a high school diploma, we might not have this problem...Ya know what? Nevermind.

My guess is it would be Washington's next available first round selection. I haven't found anything that suggests what would happen in this situation.

I posted this before, but its applicable again. IKE HAD ONE GOOD YEAR !!! Do you really think owners are gonna break the bank on the guy ? and give up a 1st round pick? I think IKE has the potential to become a great corner, is he now ... NO. Remember Chad Scott and Dwayne Washington, they both had A GREAT YEAR ......got their contract ...and look what happened. I think we are really overreacting about Ike Taylor. I'm not bashing him, just looking it at realisticlly, IMO.

I certainly have to agree with the above comment, but, more than that I believe the orginisation is playing safe here, I believe they are looking for a higher pick than #22 and by setting a low offer they are making it more realistic for other teams, perhaps they intend to offer a higher sheet to Ike - let us wait and see.

A scenario I like the look of, is that the Rams take Ike and we get their #11 pick now i see Lendale dropping to us, or Santonio Holmes, or dropping back down the opportunities are endless lets be positive

Love Ike, he is a must keep. Although I would have liked to keep Hope, keeping Keisel and Ike will satisfy me enough. but like i said id rather have all 3

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?
The Redskins can't sign Ike to an offer sheet unless they have a 1st round pick in this years draft. They would have to workout a trade, like they did for Brandon Lloyd (also a RFA who would have required a 1st round pick as compensation).

The Steelers paid him a middle level tier to see what teams would bit on him, and seeing if someone possibly in the middle rounds would bite. Taylor had an good year, but i think Steeler fans over react to his greatness. C Scott looked really good as well for a couple of years and then he all the sudden couldnt cover his shadow. I cant say for sure, but i dont see a team giving up a first round on a guy who has limited playing experience and missed about 10 INT"s and had some tackling issues. The missed INT's being the worst of it, i would get so mad at him when watching games. I would say if a team did offer us a first round pick for him, i would take it and run and get White.... use Mcfadden and Townsend, Coclough draft another CB in 3rd round and another in 5th. just my opinion of course lol =)

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.
If one really believes that LenDale White could become the tailback of the future then yes I'd make that deal. There is a good secondary crop available in the draft this year.

I love the way Ike plays but he does self-promote. And if we start to overpay in the secondary now then what is going to happen when Troy's contract is due. Troy is more valuable than Ike.

This is a slippery slope that the Rooneys should let lil' Danny take his Redskins down.

Umm. Seems like Dan Snyder is suffering from 'Napoleon syndrome.'

the redskins first round pick (22 overall) was part of the trade for clinton portis, so please do a little research before we start posting information that is not accurate
