Exactly. If we sign Ike now as opposed to after the season we should be able to save a decent amount over his "market value."

We're going to pay out the ass for Troy....but he's worth it.

Yea, definately sign Ike now, and sign Troy ASAP, cause no matter what we pay him now, it'll be alot more if he gets a look at how much teams'll be willing to pay for him.

i'm agree with ox197 if we give a long term at troy and ike the defense be very dangerous. mcfadden and i hope a new safety with the draft (cromartie,youboty,bing,ko simpson) and the steelers build a big d for future. ps:receiver in draft isn't a priority

Nice, maybe the Steelers are hoping that , not much interest in Taylor from other teams, will keep his price tag down???

Im kinda surprised they started the talks this early,especially with the draft coming up..usually they talk extensions for players after the draft and into training camp. But hey im not complaining... getting Ike nailed down to a long term deal will cement our CB's for years to come, along with McFadden and Townsend still around.

This could be some proof that the Steelers know just how great the potential is in this kid...

Anyone know exactly how much cap room we have left for this year to sign rookies, Taylor ?

The Steelers love to be stable & consistent first and foremost...

I knew that they thought this kid was special when in the middle of last season they man'd him up on Marvin Harrison and Chad Johnson. In the last 15 or so years the Steelers have only asked 1 other player to do this. And that was Rod Woodson. They are going to lock up Taylor for a while I'm guessing...... and in the names of Dewayne Washington, Delton Hall, and Tim Mckyer.... Thank goodness!!!!!!

They dont change their defensive approach (having 1 DB shadow a particular WR for the whole game) for many and we have had some good ones along the way... Ike and McFadden in a year or two could be really scary as well above average corners.
