PITTSBURGH (CBS Sports) – Back in March, Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor agreed to a $4.25 million pay cut to help the Steelers make some room under the salary cap.
As you can imagine, Taylor wasn’t too thrilled with taking the pay cut and he told Jim Rome all about it on Monday. Taylor was scheduled to make $7 million in 2014, but now will only pull in $2.75 million.
“I’m pissed off about it, still am pissed off about it and I’m going to be pissed off until the end of the season about it,” Taylor said of taking the pay cut. “Did it hurt me? Hell yeah. Does it still hurt? Yeah, it hurts, but hopefully I can go in and bounce back this year, do what I need to do on the field and we will see what happens after.”
