Default with townsend signed, whats up for taylor?

this townsend signing has worried me significantly. i would have much rather signed ike than deshea. with this signing, do you think we're gonna resign ike? the steelers would be making a huge mistake that they will regret for as long as ike plays.

PLEASE RESIGN IKE!!!!!!!!!!!!
(a star in the making)

It all depends on what other teams are offering. I can't imagine them letting Ike slip, but you never know. IMO, it would be a very big mistake.

He has an offer on the table and no team has offered him a contract yet. The only thing that scares me is that the Foreskins are interested in him and they always over pay players.

I do not believe Ike is going anywhere;unless teams are willing to give up drafts picks for him.

I believe Ike will end up staying in Steeltown. FO seems to be coming through on the players that really matter.

I wouldn't worry too much...I think this is all going according to plan. I'm actually a little surprised that Townsend came in for reasonably cheap...I thought for sure some team would vastly overpay him...

Townsend is not the future for us. He's resigned because he's a veteran, he's tough, and plays cover as good as anyone. He's there for insurance and to continue to help develop McFadden and Taylor who are the future.

Ike will be signed to a long term deal...we've invested way to much in him to let him go.

Every team needs 3 good CBs because a lot of the time they are on the field almost every down. Especially seeing Cincy twice a year, you can't just have 2 good corners and a so-so corner.

Ike will probably get an extension after the draft picks are signed.

We'll sign Ike........Deshea agreed to a four-year deal, $8 million contract that could be worth an additional $400,000 a year with incentives to re-sign.Townsend will make $3 million in the first year of the contract. Ike received a $1.55 million tender from the Steelers. If another team signs Taylor to an offer sheet, the Steelers would have to match it or would lose him and be compensated with a first-round draft choice.
