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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?)

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.

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.
