The Steelers had preliminary talks with Taylor prior to the NFL lockout, but demand is sure to be high for Taylor in what reasons to be a thin cornerback market.
Taylor, who signed a $23.5 million contract in 2006, has started every game for the Steelers since Mike Tomlin took over as coach in 2007. Though he has just 11 career interceptions -- likely contributing to his lack of Pro Bowl berths -- he regularly covers opposing teams' best receivers and contributes on kickoff coverage as well.
Farrior thinks re-signing Taylor is a "top priority."
"He had a spectacular season last year, probably the best I've seen since I've been here," said Farrior. "I know (the Steelers) are excited to get him back, but with the lockout going on we just all have to wait."
