Ike Taylor Interested In Following Dick LeBeau To Tennessee

Long-time Steelers CB Ike Taylor mentioned Sunday during an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio. that he would be willing to follow defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau to Tennessee if the opportunity presented itself.

“If there’s anybody I would follow, it would be him and him only,” Taylor said of LeBeau.

Taylor mentioned that he would consider other opportunities in either broadcasting or as an NFL scout this offseason if things didn’t work out in free agency.

In a previous interview with Pro Football Talk, Taylor said eh would consider switching positions from cornerback to safety, if necessary.

Taylor, 34, agreed to a one-year contract worth $2.75 million with the Steelers last year. However, he sustained a broken forearm that kept him out for two and half months, and later suffered a knee contusion.

There has been a lot of talk that Taylor is unlikely to be back with the Steelers next season, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him move on.

In 2014, he recorded 16 tackles and two pass defenses over the course of five games. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing just 263 total snaps last season.

While Taylor would easily be able to make the transition to playing for the Titans, it would probably be best for them to target some younger options at cornerback to develop in the coming years.

    • William Richards

      zzzzzzzzzzz

  • Michele Banal

    Bye-bye Ike. It’s long overdo and Steeler Nation will be forever grateful

    • William Richards

      Not even a little love for Ike? What kind of fan are you?

  • Greg Deusenberry

    offer any team that wants taylor, him and a draft pick! get him out of a Steelers uniform!

    • Ariel Jimmer

      Did you even read the article? Uninformed dipshit, he’s not even with the Steelers anymore.

      • Greg Deusenberry

        you really dont need to act like an ass…and yes I know that he WILL be a free agent…the aticle was “NFL Trade Rumors”…and obviously your “dipshit” ass didnt read it considering he said he would change positons to stay..DIPSHIT!

        • NFL Trade Rumors

          Oh man, this Ike Taylor conversation is getting out of control.

          • Greg Deusenberry

            lol, yeah but my post was just my opinion to start with…to each their own

          • NFL Trade Rumors

            For what it’s worth, I think Greg was actually making a joke here. Opinions are always appreciated though.

          • Ariel Jimmer

            It must be tough writing these articles and having people just jump straight to the comments to say something retarded.

        • Ariel Jimmer

          The article isn’t “NFL Trade Rumors” it’s “Ike Taylor interested in following Dick Lebeau”. NFL trade rumors is the website. Him considering a change of position doesn’t make up for you being a dipshit.

          • Greg Deusenberry

            I’m sorry that I hurt your feelings…lol

          • Will

            Your name is Ariel Jimmer. That means you dont have the right to insult people

        • William Richards

          He’s right Deusenberry, get your facts straight before you start trashing a player! Btw you couldn’t carry Ike’s jock strap!

          • Greg Deusenberry

            I believe my facts are straight! and yes, I would have to agree he more than likely is better than me…yeah, I got the article wrong, SORRY, but the debate at least for me wasn’t about the article title, it was the fact that I hope he follows anybody out of Pittsburgh that will LET him follow. and btw, I’m sure you couldnt carry is jock either, richards.

          • William Richards

            Touch a nerve? I have respect for every player who has ever put on a black and gold uniform…..with the exception of Legarrette Blount. I don’t try too find fault or rag on them when they cant play as well as they once did.Taylor was a fine corner for a long time and quite a charector. I wish him well in whatever endeavor he choses too follow.

          • Greg Deusenberry

            touch a nerve? not sure what you mean by that, but, I have respect for every Steeler that has ever played except for taylor, even more for Bubby Brister! lol…again to each his own man… this is a forum for opinions to be discussed, sorry you have a problem with that…I wasn’t the one that took it personal

          • William Richards

            Awww it’s nothing personal, just my selfish view!

          • Greg Deusenberry

            the debating is fun though, GREAT to see so much passion about the Black and [email protected]!

          • William Richards

            If the 70’s Steelers use steroids they were prescribed by a Doctor, every team in the NFL used roids in the 70’s but little sonny boy has too single out the Steelers because he’s a jealous @[email protected]

          • rennan

            Says the defender of cheaters …
            You sound like Al Sharpton , defending degenerates

          • William Richards

            You don’t have a clue @sshole, grow up, learn something about the game before you run your big mouth! You’re nothing but a big mouthed punk, hiding behind the internet.

          • lantham

            so what !!!!!

  • Dave Miller

    Ike Taylor is the most overrated cb in possibly NFL history! He sux and I can only hope his sorry ass goes to the shitbag titans! Good riddance loser!

    • mike

      what are you a raisins or bagles fan. He was very good at his position over the years. Sounds like you just like to hear yourself whine.

      • Dave Miller

        What are you an idiot? I’ve been watching that douche for years do nothing but give up huge plays, touchdowns, in his hands dropped balls and countless penalties! Tell me where I’m wrong on that mikee. 24 is a joke and any Steelers fan if being truthful will agree. Sounds like you just like to troll like a bitch and make up gay names for teams.

        • mike

          You are some kind of douche! Typical whinner who likes to listen to himself. If he was so bad, he would have been gone long ago. Your opinion is your opinion and opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one. You don.t like him, fine, just don’t run him down! Whine on, weinie!

          • Dave Miller

            I’m the douche? That fat whore you call wife is a douche you fucktard. He would have been long gone? You mean like kordell? Remember him and how long that shitshow lasted?
            You don’t know what you’re talking about, you must have started being a Steelers fan when they drafted Roethlisberger. You’re one of the only people defending this one year wonder. Talk to you soon, hi to the wife.

          • NFL Trade Rumors

            Guys, Ike Taylor isn’t worth bringing wives into the discussion. I promise.

          • Dave Miller

            Yes your absolutely right, I apologize to Mike and it won’t happen again

          • William Richards

            Ike was a good player for a lot of years, is this what fans do? Trash him when he’s down? I know one thing Ike has a whole lot better chance of making the Titan’s roster that you or that other clown does! ( Mr. Lighthouse?)

          • NFL Trade Rumors

            I’m not ripping Ike Taylor. I was trying keep things in perspective a bit.

            I agree that he was good player for them in the past. Things have gone south in recent years, but he was once an asset.

          • William Richards

            True Ike has played his last down with the Steelers and probably in the NFL..

          • s60

            You need to BAN “William Richards ” , he’s threatening and overly aggressive

          • Will

            How do you know who hes married to, if hes even married at all? He might be with a chick that you jerk off to every night, DOUCHE.

          • Dave Miller

            Hi will nice to see you being the good Samaritan douchebag. Why don’t you take your rainbow coalition flag and shove it up your ass, cause only a bitch would come to the defense of someone who didn’t need it. I realized I was out of line with Mike not you and apologized so you can go Fuck yourself will and mind your own business.

          • mike

            Bite me idiot–whine some more. I am willing to bet you never played football in your life but you know everything about the game! BTW the world is laughing at you now!

          • William Richards

            I get it, you’re a big fan when they win……but not if God forbid they lose! Word-Frontrunner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • s60

            ?

        • William Richards

          Chad Johnson said he was the best corner he played against.And ole Chad was a pretty good W,R,

    • William Richards

      How’s he over rated, anyone who’s seen him play the last few years knows he’s not the same player who came into the leauge 12 years ago, but give him his due…..you couldn’t make an NFL roster if your life depended on it.

  • Yeah

    Thank god. All he has done is take up cap and drop open interceptions.
