From the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette and Redzone.org:
Wow, who would of dreamed the Texans would go after an experienced CB in FA.
You could substitute the name of pretty much every FA CB in the league and you would be pretty close to the truth.
Interesting, but I think it'll have a lot to do with what the Steelers do in the draft too. Last I heard, the Steelers wanted him back. If that's the case, most players would rather stay with a winner. Unless of course the Texans pay out the nose for him.
I would sign him and Aso if possible. Now that would be a hell of a CB tandum...
I've had this penciled in for a long time... I think it was Lance that mentioned this months ago. I have a feeling Smith/McNair will pay more than the Steelers are willing to. I just think this makes too much sense.
Would hugely upgrade our secondary. Taylor - Jackson at CB, Quin at FS! woo!
if the only knock on him is that he doesn't catch enough ints (per the link) i'll take that in a heartbeat.....so long as he can cover & locate the ball when it's in the air, i'll settle for a pass defensed .
You got that right. How many times would we have loved for a pass to be even knocked down so we could get a win?
Ole Miss Texan, I've had this penciled in for a while. I believe in a few FA tracker threads I've mentioned going with Ike Taylor over Aso because he will not cost as much and seems to be a bit more physical CB.
Part of me wants to tell me not to get too happy about this report because A)The Texans never do what I'd like to see them do. B) Taylor's agent could be leaking this so that Pittsburgh tries to give him the deal he wants.
Ike Taylor: Steelers should be able to re-sign Ike Taylor Ike Taylor - DB - PIT - Mar. 23 - 2:52 pm et
He could be a good addition to the team. I wouldn't mind over paying for a guy like him as much as if the Texans had paid D-douche(drob) the money.
I'm thinking the Texans will offer Taylor a contract that's basically double that of Sheldon Browns. I'm sure he wants to stay with Pitt and they'd love to keep him but we see this time and time again - money often wins.
I can see it being like the Bodden situation. We'll up the contract, Steelers will match and he'll remain a Steeler.
The funny thing is just about everyone would endorse signing Ike Taylor this off-season but a year or two from now he won't count as a significant free agent signing if/when we have that discussion again.
Yeah people will turn on him and blast him for never catching interceptions. Plus, who knows how he looks without the Steeler pass rush.
Sigh....no faith...or maybe too realistic....
Ugh that would be such a tease 2.0 I'm hoping Smith has that in the back of his head and doesn't play around once we're allowed to start talking.
Another wet blanket cast over the flame by one of our most be-loved moderators
Guess it's really happened that Texan fan base has been beaten into apathy & state of submission
It's all in the PRESENTATION, Texans!
I'll believe it when I see it.
Nah really. Just an observation this is all so predictable.
We have to get a veteran CB (or whatever).
Yay, we signed Ike Taylor.
The Texans paid too much.
[Texans have an underwhelming season]
Ike was overrated to begin with and the Texans were stupid for getting such an old CB.
The Texans never do anything in free agency.
McNair is cheap.
Spot on! That is exactly how it would play out.
What a hell of a fanbase we have. lol
