|Stud Steelers ready to go Week 2 |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/11/14) The Steelers will go into Week 2 with all of their stud offensive players.
A number of important players entered the week listed as probable on the injury report. Nearly all of them are active Week 2 against the Steelers. Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Heath Miller, Ben Roethlisberger, Cody Wallace and Markus Wheaton were all cleared to play. While they were all on the injury report, only Wallace was dealing with an injury. The rest missed practice for non-injury reasons.
On defense, the Steelers will have Brett Keisel, Steve McLendon, Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor, Shamarko Thomas and Vince Williams. Wallace was dealing with an ankle issue, but the rest were listed for non-injury reasons.
|Ike Taylor unhappy with taking a pay cut |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/30/14) Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor told The Jim Rome Show that he was "pissed off" about taking a pay cut to stay with the team this season. He gave back $4.25 million in salary.
"I'm pissed off about it, still am pissed off about it and I'm going to be pissed off until the end of the season about it," Taylor said. "Did it hurt me? Hell yeah. Does it still hurt? Yeah, it hurts, but hopefully I can go in and bounce back this year, do what I need to do on the field and we will see what happens after."
Taylor added that he considered leaving the Steelers when asked to take a pay cut but noticed that other players who didn't take pay cuts struggled after getting released.
"I didn't want to leave Pittsburgh, point blank, period," Taylor said. "I've got a lot of relationships -- I have a lot of friends, I gained a lot of business relationships in Pittsburgh. Just hearing from other guys coming from other teams and being on the team with Pittsburgh, they say it's like no other; it's like day and night, so I'll listen."

|Report: Release of Ike Taylor could be sound move |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(1/29/14) Financial and performance considerations could motivate the Steelers to release veteran cornerback Ike Taylor, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Taylor is slated to earn $7 million in 2014, which would count nearly $11.9 million against the cap. In addition, Taylor was burned by several top wideouts in his 11th season, motivating defensive cooredinator Dick LeBeau to abandon him in that role. Speculation is that the most prudent move would be to offer him a new contract at far less money.
