NFL Free Agency: Ike Taylor Is Top Priority For Steelers

The NFL Lockout finally appears to be coming to an end. As we head into what will surely be an incredibly chaotic NFL free agency period, Pro Football Weekly has a list of the 100 top NFL free agents.

Only two Steelers, cornerback Ike Taylor and offensive lineman Willie Colon, make the list. Taylor, of course, will attract most of the Steelers' attention. The team wasn't great at the cornerback position next year, and it's not really clear that they have any starting cornerbacks without him. (At least not right now; the two they drafted in 2011, Curtis Brown and Cortez Allen, might contribute in the future.) Still, Taylor looks inclined to test the market, and if some team swoops in and offers more money than the Steelers think he's worth, the free agency period could begin to get really unpredictable.

You can follow this storystream for all Steelers free agency updates as they happen. Also be sure to check out Behind The Steel Curtain, which is SB Nation's Steelers blog, and SB Nation's NFL hub.
