PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – After using the franchise tag on linebacker LaMarr Woodley, the Pittsburgh Steelers could be using the transition tag on cornerback Ike Taylor, according to John Harris of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

If the Steelers do use the transition tag on Taylor, it would allow them a right match an offer signed with a new team. If the offer is not matched by the Steelers it would not provide the team with any compensation if he signs with another team.

Under the current CBA, a player receiving the transition tag would receive the average salary of the 10 highest paid players at that position, which would be approximately $8 million for Taylor.

Teams are allowed to use a franchise tag and a transition tag under the rules of the uncapped year, which still apply until a new CBA is reached.

However, a new CBA could wipe out any transition tags used by teams who also have applied a franchise tag.
