Ike Taylor says he'll be back with Pittsburgh Steelers

Ike Taylor apparently is staying with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The veteran cornerback used his Twitter account Monday to share the news that he'll be back for a 12th season in the Steel City.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Media's Aditi Kinkhabwala reported Monday that Taylor took a pay cut from the $7 million he was due in 2014 to remain with the team that selected him in the fourth round of the 2003 NFL Draft.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette reported that the cornerback agreed to a one-year deal for $2.75 million in a move that will save the team $4.25 million in salary cap space.

The 33-year-old's play dipped last season, leading to speculation that Pittsburgh would sever ties with one of its defensive fixtures.

Taylor has been a starter at cornerback in Pittsburgh since the 2005 season. He'll likely be on the field with William Gay and Cortez Allen in three-corner packages.
