If he is not willing to accept a contract for close to the vet minimum much like Bettis...he will be gone. The Steelers will not pay him even close to starter money. Why? Because this is his last season starting. He knows it...the Steelers know it. I would like to see him stay...but it's a business. If he really loves the Steelers that much he will accept a 2 year deal for 3.4-4 million. That will retire him as a Steeler and the Steelers get to keep a vet presence in that LB core.
Who's going to take over for him next season?
D will look like this
Sprinkle in a rookie first round ILB.
Yeah Harrison's a good choice. We know he's good at beatin' on them mouthy hoes!
