Gildon still on the block, Taylor gets a bonus
From the Tribune-Review:
"Steelers director of football operations Kevin Colbert said some teams have expressed an interest in trading for outside linebacker Jason Gildon.

"We are in discussions," he said. "We have had some teams that expressed an interest and they want to do their own further evaluation.""

Bonus for Taylor
Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor received a supplemental payment of $68,013 in the second year of the NFL's Performance Based Pay system.

Under the system, which was included in the extension of the Collective Bargaining Agreement in 2002, payment is determined based on a comparison of playing time to salary. It is given to players who are perceived to be outperforming their contracts.
