What is Ike Taylor worth?


Really slow news-wise.

Just curious what the thoughts are out there on what kind of contract Ike will get assuming he stays in Pittsburgh.

 

Some frames of reference:

 

2011 franchise tag $14m

2010 franchise tag $9.6m

Asomugha contract (2009) 3 years $25m guaranteed, avg $15m/year

Asante Samuel (2008) 6 years $23m guar. avg $9.5m/year

Revis (2010) 4 years $21m guar avg $11.5m/year

Ike Taylor (2006) 5 years $6.4 bonus, avg $4.5/year

My guess is that he gets a 4 year contract with some back end loading similar to what Farrior signed that would give him a pretty high average take per year but might make him a cap casualty as he slows down.

 

My guess is 4 years, $8m bonus avg of $6.5m/year with last years much higher base.
