We like Ike

Restricted free agent cornerback Ike Taylor has yet to draw a contract offer from another team, but could get one soon.

Now that the New York Jets have two first-round draft picks available to them thanks to their trade of John Abraham to Atlanta, Taylor might be on their radar.

Any team that signs Taylor to a contract would owe the Steelers a first-round draft pick in return if the Steelers don't match the offer.

Considering the Jets released starting corner Ty Law just prior to the start of free agency, Taylor would be a nice pickup for them. And they have the ammunition with which to do it.
