Jason La Canfora reports that the Steelers are “working to see” if veteran CB Ike Taylor will accept a pay cut to be back in Pittsburgh next season.

Reports have indicated for months now that Taylor could be a cap casualty this offseason and the team just informed OLB LaMarr Woodley that he won’t be back next year.
