Default Talks resume -- not that they matter to Ike

http://steelers.scout.com/2/556921.html

quote of the year:

Quote:
?I don?t care who you are, or how good you are, you?re not going to bust the Steelers,? he said. ?You might be the best player with the best agent, but if the Steelers think you?re worth a certain number, they?re not going to budge. I respect that. I respect them. That?s why I want to stay here.?

Does Taylor?s agent know this?

?I told him that the first day,? Taylor said. ?He knows.?

As with every athlete, talk is cheap.

I'm going to wait and see how talks between Ike's agent and the Steelers FO pan out over the next year.....

talk is chaep but this quote is priceless (we shall see. if this comes to pass, i just hope ben and troy approach negotiations with the same attitude.):

“I told him that the first day,” Taylor said. “He knows.”

But Smith plows on. He has until Sept. 7 to negotiate for as much as he can. Once the regular season begins the negotiations will break off and both sides will wait until February to resume talks. By then, the rest of the league will know more about Taylor, the terrific one-year starter. But Taylor said it doesn’t matter what the rest of the league learns this season.

“I’ll be here,” he said Monday. “I will be here. I will be here. I’ll put a stamp on it: I’ll be here. We’ll definitely get something worked out.”

Hopefully Ike and the FO will get a contract worked out. I would love to see him stay in the Burgh.

Ike just impressed me off-the-field.

None of that quote from Ike actually makes any sense in terms of him staying.

Quote:
“I don’t care who you are, or how good you are, you’re not going to bust the Steelers,” he said. “You might be the best player with the best agent, but if the Steelers think you’re worth a certain number, they’re not going to budge. I respect that. I respect them. That’s why I want to stay here.”
So he is saying that he knows that the Steelers wont budge on a valuation, yet he hasn't signed a large extension?

Sounds more like he is saying 'goodbye' but doing it nicely.

Ike wants to stay in Pittsburgh............Ike wants an 8 figure signing bonus.

That equation does not compute.
