Steelers' free agents: Part II (Restricted FA's)

Expect the Steelers to tender offers to both of their restricted free agents, WR Sean Morey and CB/KR Ike Taylor. Morey isn't an NFL-quality wide receiver, but he's made his mark contributing on special teams.

As for Taylor, it wouldn't be a surprise if tbe team offered him more than the minimum one-year tender - perhaps even the maximum - owing to his value as an up-and-coming starting corner and the possibility that a CB-needy team may make him an offer. Ultimately, the Steelers will work towards negotiating a long-term contract extension with Taylor, which would keep him from becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2007.
