Steelers restructure Ike Taylor’s contract, too

Wild Card Playoffs - Pittsburgh Steelers v Denver Broncos Getty Images

Before dumping contracts and/or forcing players to take pay cuts, the Steelers are willing to give out millions in signing bonuses in exchange for the ability to push cap dollars into future years.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that cornerback Ike Taylor, who signed a four-year deal with the Steelers before the 2011 season, has converted the maximum amount of his $5.75 million base salary for 2012 into a signing bonus.  Since the minimum base salary for a player with Taylor’s experience is $825,00, the team was able to give him $4.925 million now.

The maneuver pushed $3.28 million in cap space into future years, pushing the total cap space created by three restructurings to nearly $15 million.  The Steelers created $11.7 million by pushing the maximum amount of their 2012 compensation into the form of a signing bonus for linebackers LaMarr Woodley and Lawrence Timmons.

After getting torched by the Broncos in the 2011 wild-card round, Taylor should be thrilled he didn’t see his $5.75 million base salary converted into a one-way ticket out of town.

    Not a great signing last year but I guess they had to keep him. Just a pretty good player.

  2. tdotsteel says: Feb 10, 2012 1:28 PM

    Actually it guaranteed Bruce Arians a one way to Indianapolis on the Andrew Luck express.

  3. burnzy32 says: Feb 10, 2012 1:29 PM

    everybody keeps trying to clown the Steelers for getting torched by the broncos, liiiiike Ryan Clark playing wouldnt of made a huge, huuuuuge difference, Im a Lions fan, and trust me I know the importance of good/healthy safety play…theyre almost more important than a MLB

    Or, he should be please that he works for people who actually know what they’re doing, rather than absurdly fickle fans or melodramatic media members.

    Yawn … you know he’s a much better player than a couple downs in that Wildcard game. That, or you only read about football instead of watching it.

    You mean kind of like how Denver didn’t have Brian Dawkins playing??
    Or their RG Chris Kuper (one of the best in the league)
    Or their leading WR Eric Decker for 3/4ths of the game??

    Sick of hearing the excuses that they lost because of injury, Denver had just as many key injuries. Get over it.

  8. ianwhetstone says: Feb 10, 2012 1:34 PM

    “Not a great signing last year but I guess they had to keep him.”

    Nonsense. They retained one of the better cover corners in the league for much less than the going rate for top cover corners.

    Soid, not greatm player, who got posterized by a young beast of a physical speciman is D.Thomas. It happens.

  12. themackstrong says: Feb 10, 2012 1:56 PM

    I don’t care for the Steelers but the way his own fans and media get on him for his play. He’s pretty damn solid player for years including this one. On the last play there was meant to be safety help up the middle and was playing an outside technique forcing Thomas to the middle. The S tried to make the QB think he was blitzing and was way out of position and the play was made. I don’t get paid to write about football but I love the game and think its important to be knowledgeable when throwing opinions out there.

    IF they know what they are doing so well, why do they keep “restructuring” contracts they did just last year or the year before that???

    “the total cap space created by three restructurings to nearly $15 million”

    Actually they haven’t created any ‘cap space’ because they are still over the cap. ‘Cap space’ would be space under the cap, not over it.

    What they have done is reduce their cap, which is a lot different than creating ‘cap space’.

    “After getting torched by the Broncos in the 2011 wild-card round, Taylor should be thrilled he didn’t see his $5.75 million base salary converted into a one-way ticket out of town.”

    Ike Taylor had arguably his best season as a pro and he was coming off a new contract. He was as consistent as he’s ever been all season long. He played a terrible game against Denver (albeit in a zero coverage all game, not making excuses but (yeah I kinda am)). Looking at his entire body of work from 2011, Ike24 totally exceeded all expectations.

    Besides, totally different game if Ryan Clark plays. He’s value is so underrated. Ok now I’m definitely making excuses.

  16. theroc5156 says: Feb 10, 2012 2:12 PM

    I’m a Bengal fan and hate the Steelers but even I think dogging Taylor for one “bad” game is silly. He’s one of the better corners in the league.

    You going to get rid of the rest of the defense as well because they lost to the Broncos?

  17. ac540 says: Feb 10, 2012 2:15 PM

    Music to my ears. Take a cap hit for that scrub in future years while he gets burned my any decent WR in current years. Swaggin’.

  18. clayton43 says: Feb 10, 2012 2:21 PM

    Awesome great moves !! We still need about 9 million left to restructure at a minimum…Ben and Ward is either gone or will have to take a huge paycut as well as hampton, Smith and or Kiesel so we will be fine !!

    On another note, after watching the press conference on Haley becoming new OC… Both Tomlin and haley discussed about how much they talked and the interview process before the hire. The ” media” made it sound like it was only the Rooneys who wanted Haley there and Tomlin had no imput. Also noted, when Tomlin introduced Haley they shook hands and as Tomlin was passing him,Tomlin gave Haley a smack on the ass or a ” love pat” if you will. Now that being said, there could be a BROMANCE going on or something ( not that anything is wrong with that ) but sure doesnt seem like Haley was forced about Tomlin as this site and the media suggest. After watching the press conference I feel better about the hire !!

    Ike “and Tina Turner” Taylor

  20. tommikula says: Feb 10, 2012 2:28 PM

    Here is how they dump the rest of the cap space:

    1. Cut Aaron Smith, great player but he cannot stay healthy anymore.

    2. Cut Hines, old, slow and better younger guys are on the squad.

    3. Cut Casey Hampton. Same reasons as 2 and plus he reportedly tore his ACL before the Broncos game wrestling with another player in the locker room. This also makes him a moron.

    4. James Harisson makes a lot for his age, have him restructure or cut him. Timmons, Foote, Worilds, Woodley would be a hell of a LB core.

  21. clayton43 says: Feb 10, 2012 2:35 PM

    As for Taylors play… no probs with it at all………
    He is underrated as far as his play as a whole… he generally plays man to man every game and takes on the other teams best WR… He does get beat sometimes and doesnt get INT’s but for the most part he is pretty good. If anything, Talor has overachieved to this point from when he first came here. The Steelers prob is they dont have another corner so they play zone on opposite side and LB’s …Taylor played bad in Denver game ( Tebow made some good throws as well and no pressue).. so I dont blame Taylor.. he just played bad and nobody else on D bailed him out. Was a TEM loss.

    I see your Dawkins and raise you Clark,

    I see your WR Decker and raise you Mendenhall,
    Tea Bag, I raise you a hobbled high ankle sprain Ben,
    I also Raise you Keisel, Hampton, and Starks.

    Say what you wish about injuries… if injuries are no excuse as to why a team does not play well, why would you mention the injuries on your team? I applaud your Broncos for winning the game, well done…however, with a healthy squad, I believe different outcome. Oh, and just ask the Colts about an injury not making a difference. Agree to dis-agree.

  24. ppdoc13 says: Feb 10, 2012 2:53 PM

    every time they restructure someone they only defer the pain to another year. unless they really think they have a good shot of making the SB next year, they are playing a losing game. The ravens did this and paid for it in a big way during the Brian Billick era. You are basically borrowing from peter to pay paul. it is not a good way to run a business. one only has to look at the Washington Redskins to see what happens to a team that consistently pushes off the cap hit.

    not that i give a crap. i am a ravens fan and hate the steelers, but what I say is the truth. truth hurts. they should have never signed Troy P to that huge extension at his age with his medical issues. Same for Ike “toast” taylor. Maybe one of the most overrated CB’s in the league.

  25. madczyk says: Feb 10, 2012 2:58 PM

    I wonder what would happen if in the NFL you couldn’t restructure players contracts or at least there be strict limitations to doing so. It seems to me that far to often, successful teams can make deals with players in order to sacrifice cap space in one year to have more in a future year. This allows them to still have the quality player they had before (but now at a cheaper cap charge) and now the ability to sign another quality player, or more players.

    Although this is perfectly legal, it sets up an “all in” philosophy that teams can have in future years. Normally this causes the team to be dismantled the year following such a move. On the flip side it allows teams that have made bad decisions with contracts/players to dump said players and contracts, sacrificing one year of cap space, in order to start fresh the following year (see Stanford Routt).

    If teams where mostly stuck with the contract and player more often, they would be forced to look further for quality players, if they made a bad decision. They would also be less reckless with high priced contracts. This would cause less pay for players, but more consistency with players getting what they deserve to get paid.

    The Broncos has just as many injuries? Really?

    The Steelers had more injuries than that on the offense alone. Ben was playing with a bum ankle, and Pouncey, Mendenhall, and Starks were all out of the game.

    On defense, there was Woodley at 60%, no Ryan Clark, Casey Hampton, Brett Keisel, or Chris Hoke.

    But I guess three players are more important than losing two of your best offensive lineman, your starting running back, starting safety, having no depth on the defensive line, having arguably your best linebacker at 60%, and your franchise QB hindered by a sprained ankle.

  28. haileli says: Feb 10, 2012 3:15 PM

    He is a really solid QB who had a great season last year. On the biggest stage, he got torched. A one-way ticket out of town? Please. Typical overreaction.

  29. jr4real says: Feb 10, 2012 3:34 PM

    how about all the people saying the steelers have cap room problems and will be ruined for the next decade? (Ravens fans?) In two days they’ve gone from $23M over to 7M over.

    not that hard to do if you know what you are doing — unlike most teams. And they didn’t push the problem forward. its not like keeping timmons and woodley was debatable.

  30. johntonioholmes says: Feb 10, 2012 3:40 PM

    Yeah but you’re forgetting that the best safety in the AFC was missing.

    And I say that full-well knowing that people will flip, but the Steelers allowed fewer big plays than any other team in the league.

    And that’s because Clark was on the back end.

    Maybe one of the most overrated corners in the league? Through 8 games you could count the number of receptions that he allowed on 2 hands.

    He literally had one bad game all season and it just came at the wrong time.

    Please don’t make your fellow Ravens fans look so stupid with comments like that.

    @tedmurph …

    I had some issues with Ike in 2010, but he had a great season in 2011. He’s not in the top tier of corners–meaning guys like Revis, Joseph, and Asomugha before the Eagles neutered him. But he’s in the high second tier, and we were fortunate to keep him. Often good corners aren’t seen or heard because opponents respect them enough not to throw in their direction.

    Ike’s one disastrous failure this year came against Denver, and even that was partly due to poor prep by our usually stellar defensive coaching staff. At least Ike was a man about taking responsibility for his mistakes.

    Being candid, I’ll never recover from the loss of Rod Woodson or think anyone else is good enough at the position. But Ike is still a tremendous asset to the team.

    ———————————————————-@toegoat:
    Yeah, I’m a Pats fan and I’m all over those blogs. Just because this thread is about the steelers, doesn’t mean it’s an exclusive club(I have more than 1 tooth, ok if I still blog?). If Ike is better than all the CBs on the Pats roster(debatable), so what? It isn’t saying much, and that wasn’t the point anyway. But, since you brought it up, the difference is, I have some perspective on the Pat’s players. Some of them aren’t good. Difference is, steeler fans glorify their players , think they have 53 superstars and take it as a personal attack when someone points out their shortcomings. Nobody outside of Pitts things Taylor’s a great cover corner. Trust me.

  38. tedmurph says: Feb 10, 2012 5:56 PM

    @deb:
    Never said Taylor sucked, just meant that 28mil for a 6.5/7 on a scale of 1-10 was a bit much. Also said they had to keep him, considering their situation at corner. That’s all I said. I feel that corner(and FS) has been a weak spot for the steelers for years, and would be worse if the pass rush wasn’t so good. Would never get down on a player for one bad play. It may stick out, but 1 play usually doesn’t lose a game. Other factors involved against Denver.

  39. Deb says: Feb 10, 2012 5:56 PM

    Yes, dear, we can tell Broncos fans hate the Steelers. Heaven knows, enough of them troll our threads to tell us. We might hate your team, too, but it’s just not relevant enough to bother. We have more interesting rivalries. However, congratulations on that playoff win. Your team came up with a great game plan and did an excellent job executing it. Pity you’re not better winners. But I guess you haven’t had much recent practice.

  43. cup1981 says: Feb 10, 2012 6:41 PM

    Dude is a top-10 corner and people rag on him wayyy too often. He had a single bad game. Granted, it was at the worst possible of times, but he played at a very high level all year and earned his contract.

    Yes, he does not have the pretty CB stats, like INTs, but he is always near the top of the leagues in passes defended and tackles, which makes him a top-flight CB in the league.

    INTs mean nothing if you can’t cover, ask Anthony Henry.

  44. tedmurph says: Feb 10, 2012 6:44 PM

    Sure he’d get offers. He’s a pretty good player, not great. Aggressive, big hitter, good run stuffer, just ok in coverage. Is he worth 28mil? Not in my opinion. Although he is better than most of the Pats corners, I don’t think he’s worth the price and wouldn’t want him. McCourty is saveable(All-PRO last yr), Arrington is cheap and underrated, and they drafted Ras-I-Dowling with the first pick in the 2nd round last yr and was on IR. They should all get better. A rookie and a cheap vet and I’m fine with that. They need a safety and more pass rush.

    So that must make the 2010-2011 Packers the best team ever cause we beat the Stillers in the SB with 7 Starters on IR 4 more contributors on IR, Woodson, Shields, and Driver lost for the 2nd half and you guys never had the lead. We should have won by 3TD’s but our WR’s couldnt catch.

    It’s admirable watching Steel fans defend Ike so ferverently, but to be honest, he’s been going downhill for a few years now.

  47. northsidesteel says: Feb 10, 2012 7:45 PM

    Ike is a top tier defender.. the team lost in Denver, not Ike. The defensive game plan never allowed them to defend the run and the pass at the same time. Frankly it didn’t matter, this year’s version of the Steelers, because of injury wasn’t good enough to beat either any of the teams left in the playoff pool. I look forward to see the offense redevelop under the new OC.

    tedmurph

    …except football analyst who know a thing or two.

    He allowed fewer TD receptions in the 2011 regular season than Revis allowed in one game against the Bills.

    Taylor has awful hands, but he covers receivers LEGALLY, something that Revis and Haden can’t do.

    Hall and Joseph are probably the best in the game. Haden is 95% of Revis without all of the talk. He has a second set of rules, too, although he occasionally does get called for P.I., while Revis NEVER does.

  52. Deb says: Feb 10, 2012 8:58 PM

    @tedmurph …

    I read your line about no one outside Pitt thinking he’s a great corner as a harsher criticism than you intended. As for FS, Ryan Clark is pretty good at that position. Obviously he’s no Ed Reed, but he’s a smart, savvy player. My only beef with Ryan is that he too often tends to lead with his helmet, but he’s gotten better about it this year.

    I’m excited to see what Myron Rolle can bring to the mix. He’s certainly got the intellectual chops to pick up LeBeau’s complex defensive schemes. I’d like to pick up a corner with a little more speed. But barring injury–or a return to Denver that would take Ryan out of play–our secondary should be okay. I’m most concerned, as always, about the o-line.

    This is the best front office in the league. The only teams that compare are the Pats and the Ravens.

    Their worst season in 42 years has been 5-11, if I’m not mistaken. And that happened only once.

    Why does everyone keep saying they just pushed their cap to other years. All the restructured deals were converted to huge signing bonuses. Doesn’t count against the cap for future seasons

    @johntonioholmes:
    …except football analyst who know a thing or two.
    First of all, I have no respect for people that make
    statements like that, as if you’re condescending to enlighten everyone with your vast weath of FB knowledge the rest of us can only hope to understand. If you have an opinion, give it, you don’t need to try to convince everyone of your FB acumen. My remarks on Taylor aren’t just my opinion, but based on analysis from well known web sites the censors prob won’t let me mention. TD passes allowed is only part of the story.

    Second, your excuses about some corners not getting flags is just that, excuses. If they don’t throw a flag, it’s legal. If Revis seems to get some calls, which he does, it’s becauswe he’s earned his rep with his play. Also the 4 you mentioned are better than Taylor, and that’s just in the AFC.
