    James Harrison.....

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Steelers have reached an impasse in contract restructuring talks with James Harrison.

    Per the Post-Gazette, "the chance has increased that the star linebacker could be released soon." Added beat reporter Ed Bouchette on ESPN Thursday, "They've been talking all day and they've gotten nowhere. ... Neither side has come to any kind of agreement on this." The Steelers want Harrison to take a pay cut off his $6.57 million base salary. So far, Harrison's camp is balking.

    Re: James Harrison.....

    Not sure if it means anything but caught this on a Steelers blog...............................

     

    The Steelers were under the NFL’s salary cap last week, but signing William Gay likely brought them back up to or above the cap. And the Steelers have restricted free agents such as Isaac Redman and Emmanuel Sanders to resign; they undoubtedly like bring back some of their unrestricted free agents such as Larry Foote or perhaps Plaxico Burress.

    To do that they need money. They can restructure LaMarr Woodley’s contract, but they don’t want to do that.

    • They can gain 5 million and change by cutting James Harrison outright.

    The Steelers don’t want to do that because James Harrison still has something left, and he’s still better than Jason Worilds.

    The two sides are still talking, but the clock is ticking….

    Might be a good ...one/two year pickup ...if that option is available....still averaging double digit sacks I think.

    Re: James Harrison.....

    If it is a questipn of whether or not he adds value on the field ... well... he does. Clearly. If it is a question of overpaying for what he brings, I am not sure but I expect if Pitt does not want to pay his asking price neitehr will we. But I do think he would make the D better - if he was on the field.

    Never liked the guy or his game, but I thought Rodney Harrison was a cheap SOB when he played for the Chargers too.  Unlike R. Harrison though, I think J. Harrison's best days are past.  Not to say he can't still play, but I think some desperate team will overpay him a bit.

    Re: James Harrison.....

    If can still play, which i think so BB will make it happen

    and I wish we could stop calling players who play the game hard/tough "thugs" that kind of play made the game a lot of money..so sick and tired of hearing that...I dont want to pull the race card out BUT the "thug" reference always comes up when it is a black player...how ironic

    But anyways BB knows whats best

    James Harrison  changes  tune on Patriots  

     

    Posted  24 min ago   (Jeff Howe Boston Herald)

    Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison has thrown more than a few verbal haymakers at the Patriots during his career. Now, he's angling for a handshake.

    Harrison was released by the Steelers today and was asked by ESPN about potentially playing for the Pats. His response was telling.

    "Of course it would be nice to play with Tom Brady," Harrison said. "I mean, who wouldn't want to?"

    Harrison also said he isn't opposed to playing with anyone.

    Harrison, who turns 35 in May, has played outside linebacker in the Steelers' 3-4, but the Pats played with more four-man fronts in the last two seasons. Yet, they used both Chandler Jones and Rob Ninkovich in stand-up roles in 2012, so there's no doubt Bill Belichick could use Harrison in an edge-rushing capacity if the interest happens to be mutual.

    He brings the toughness an attitude that is sorely lacking on the Patriots D. Does he have anything left is the question. But you won't know if you don't give him a shot.

    Yeah, but Suggs says everyone hates the Pats, so this quotation must be false!

    for vet minimum and depth, sure, why not. But let's not waste a roster spot for a position where we still need some signficant help.

    They'd only sign him on the cheap . . . I expect he'll be on a market for awhile (a least until after the draft) as I do not see a big rush to sign a guy who on the way out the door.
