According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, free agent CB Ike Taylor "has accepted the idea he likely has played his final NFL game."
Unable to drum up any free agent interest, Taylor says he is no longer fielding offers. It would be a stretch to say Taylor went out on top after another dismal season in Pittsburgh's yard-bleeding secondary. Quarterbacks have been using him as a punching bag for years. Taylor, who spent his entire 12-year career with the Steelers, now plans to pursue broadcasting, possibly with NFL Films or NFL Network. Mar 23 - 9:14 AM

Free agent CB Ike Taylor said he'd be interested in signing with the Titans.

Taylor had previously said he'll only play for the Steelers. But now that longtime Steelers DC Dick LeBeau is in Tennessee, Taylor has let the Titans into the mix. In reality, Taylor, 35 in May and coming off a string of horrible play, likely won't be drawing any interest outside of Pittsburgh or Tennessee.

Free agent CB Ike Taylor said he's "training as if he'll be playing in 2015."

Taylor isn't expected to be re-signed by the Steelers, but reportedly wants to play 2-3 more years. He's open to moving to safety to prolong his career. Entering his age 35 season, Taylor will struggle for guaranteed money on the open market. Taylor has interest in following ex-Steelers DC Dick LeBeau to another team.

ESPN Steelers reporter Scott Brown says free agent CB Ike Taylor is "unlikely" to be re-signed.

It's a sad day for matchup-savvy fantasy owners. Taylor was a weekly target for the last few seasons, giving up countless big plays to front-line receivers. Notable whippings in 2014 came at the hands of Kenny Stills in Week 13 (5-162-1) and A.J Green in Week 14 (11-224-1). Although the Steelers are razor-thin and severely lacking talent at corner, moving on from Taylor is their only move. At age 35 (in May), he could very well be at the end of the line.

Steelers LCB Ike Taylor (shoulder/forearm) is listed as questionable for Week 17 against the Bengals.

Taylor got in a limited practice every day this week, but with the secondary playing well over the last several games, the Steelers may choose to hold out the oft-burned corner. That would be bad news for A.J. Green, who torched Taylor for 136 yards and a touchdown Week 14.

Steelers LCB Ike Taylor is listed as doubtful for Week 16.

The fantasy moneymaker will join SS Troy Polamalu (knee) on the sideline. 34-year-old Taylor is battling injuries to his knee, shoulder, and arm.

Steelers LCB Ike Taylor (knee, shoulder, forearm) may not start Sunday's game against the Falcons even if he's healthy enough to play.

Taylor has gotten dismantled by Kenny Stills and A.J. Green the past two weeks, and coach Mike Tomlin has taken notice. "That's to be determined," was Tomlin's exact response when asked if Taylor would start if healthy. "We just need to, first of all, get a handle of where he is from a health standpoint, and then make a decision accordingly." Our guess is that Taylor will be sent to the pine as the Steelers look to slow Roddy White, and perhaps Julio Jones (hip).

Ike Taylor says he took himself out of Sunday's Week 14 win at Cincy because of a knee contusion.

Coach Mike Tomlin also said the knee was why Taylor was removed from the game. In reality, it's just a way for Taylor to save face after he got humiliated by A.J. Green one week after getting toasted by the Saints. He says he's going to play against the Falcons next week -- Julio Jones and Roddy White can only hope so.

In his first game since breaking his arm in Week 3, Ike Taylor gave up a 69-yard touchdown to Kenny Stills Sunday.

Welcome back, old friend. Long one of our favorite corners to target from a matchup perspective, Taylor got burnt on a double move. "Your eyes can be your friend or your worst enemy," Taylor said. "So when your eyes aren't where they need to be, just for that split-second, that's what happens." The Steelers face A.J Green, Mohamad Sanu and the Bengals in Week 14.

Steelers CB Ike Taylor (arm) is expected to return for Week 13.

Taylor hasn't played since breaking his right forearm way back on Sept. 21. Although he's annually picked on by opposing quarterbacks, he's actually an upgrade on the hot mess the Steelers have been trotting out opposite William Gay. Brice McCain, who replaced Cortez Allen, will go back to a slot role.

Steelers CB Ike Taylor (arm) will not play in Monday night's game at Tennessee.

Taylor has been out since breaking his forearm Sept. 21. It appears he's not cleared for contact.
Tue, Nov 11, 2014 12:48:00 PM

Steelers CB Ike Taylor (arm) is inactive for Sunday's Week 10 game against the Jets.

Taylor is getting close after breaking his right forearm on Sept. 21, but he's not quite ready yet. The Steelers also previously ruled out starting S Troy Polamalu (knee) and starting ILB Ryan Shazier (ankle), sapping them of a ton of speed. The rest of their inactives: S Shamarko Thomas, S Ross Ventrone, QB Landry Jones and G Chris Hubbard.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 11:42:00 AM

Steelers CB Ike Taylor (arm) returned to individual drills Wednesday.

Taylor broke his right forearm on Sept. 21 and was given a six-week timetable after titanium plates were surgically inserted. Even though the 34-year-old has been getting dominated by opposing wideouts for a few years now, the Steelers will gladly welcome him back. Cortez Allen has graded out dead last among 106 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' ranks.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Steelers CB Ike Taylor (arm) is aiming to return to the field in six weeks.

Taylor's season looked lost when his forearm snapped last week. The 34-year-old instead got two plates and 15 screws inserted into his arm this past week, and hopes to be back shortly after midseason. While Taylor is out, the Steelers will trot out Cortez Allen and William Gay as their starting corners.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 12:18:00 PM

Steelers CB Ike Taylor will be out indefinitely after breaking his forearm in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

He's undergoing surgery on Monday. It's bad news for matchup-savvy fantasy owners as Taylor is a weekly target. Last year, he was PFF's No. 98 corner out of 110 qualifiers. Look for Taylor to head to short-term injured reserve and William Gay to take over at right corner in the meantime. Gay was PFF's No. 9 corner last season.
