Steelers Insider Ed Bouchette On The Fan

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – 93.7 The Fan’s Steelers’ Insider Ed Bouchette joined The Fan Morning Show Wednesday during his vacation to guest host and talk about the Steelers.

Bouchette thinks free agent cornerback Ike Taylor will end up staying with the Steelers.

“But I’m not gonna say 100 percent,” Bouchette said about the Steelers’ 2003 draft pick. “Ike Taylor is obviously their best cornerback, but he’s become Mel Blount over the past two months. I don’t put him in that category. They don’t wanna lose him, but it’s not like they are gonna lose a big piece of the puzzle, I don’t think.”

Steelers tackle Willie Colon is expected to be an unrestricted free agent, and the Steelers could be without him and Taylor.

Colon ruptured his Achilles tendon last June and because of that, Bouchette doesn’t know what teams will be interested in him. But Bouchette believes Colon won’t be a Steeler anymore.

“He wants to stay, really wants to stay,” Bouchette said about Colon. “However, he’s coming off an Achilles injury, and is there someone out there that is going to give him some big bucks? I don’t know think so.”

As for the NFL Lockout, Bouchette said if there is a deal made this week then training camps can start on time.

“If they don’t, it’s gonna be a little iffy,” he said.

    Flag football isn’t worth my time or trouble. Goodell has ruined the game. Many fans are boycotting the NFL till Goodell quits or is fired. We the fans have had enough.

  3. Lyle Mater says:

    Burnett may have dropped the ball but hey Ike stone hands Taylor does it all the time so why did Joe get exciled

    Ike covers teams best WR every week. And he usually takes them out of the game. Ike Taylor is an outstanding corner.

  5. Tony6Ringz says:

    Ike is a good, solid corner, but not outstanding. If he caught the ball, he would be exceptional. Defending the pass is critical, but turnovers completely change the game!
