PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Steelers insider, Ed Bouchette said the team is currently unable to sign Ike Taylor because of the current collective bargaining negotiations.
Bouchette said if the Steelers really wanted to sign him or if Taylor really wanted to come back they could have done it before he became a free agent. However, he thinks in the end Taylor will be a Steeler next year.
In the past, Steelers owner, Dan Rooney was known as a mediator when it came to NFL labor negotiations. Now, his son, Art, is on the Management Council Executive Committee. Bouchette thinks Art can grown into his father’s role.
Bouchette wrote in his blog that Hines Ward is taking Dancing with the Stars seriously, but a couple of his teammates are more interested in what he will be wearing on the show instead of how he will finish.
