If you thought Ike Taylor was a must-sign for the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason, you’re probably pretty happy right about now. According to reports from ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Pro Football Talk, the Steelers and Taylor have come to terms on a four-year contract.

The Steelers are clearly a better team in 2011 with Taylor than they are without out him, but it’s difficult to ignore his age and the overall landscape of the position across the league from a long-term outlook.
Prior to this news it had been a relatively quiet day from the Steelers in terms of free agent talks, and this pretty much came out of nowhere late Tuesday night.
