    I will be shocked if he gets that kind of offer.

    I have to agree with this. My guess is that he's going to have to sign a one or two year deal with a low base salary and incentives. I also believe that whoever signs him is going to get as really good football player for two years.

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    I don't think the Steelers were willing to pay Harrison even $4.7 million, and i still think he made a mistake by not cutting a deal. No way he gets 4 years, $25 milllion. He's 35 years old, has been injured a good portion of the past two seasons, his production has been down, and he is the poster boy for Goodell's war-on-football-as-we-used-to-know-it. He''ll be lucky to get 2 years for $8 million.

    I think whoever gets him will expect 2-3 good years, but, will sign him for a longer term (3-4), knowing that can cut him a couple of years down the line if they need to... I say he'll have a 2015 roster bonus that he'll never see... either way, my gut says it'll average $5 mil per or higher...

    Some bad team with a lot of cap space (there's quite a few) is going to see Harrison as a guy who's "young" for his age, with something major to prove (recovered from injury and Steelers not keeping him), a TON of intensity and intimidation factor, and a Super Bowl winner and former Defensive player of the year. He's going to get some bank. You can never underestimate the stupidity/propensity to overpay of ownership in the NFL. Never.

    If Harrison had not been effectively blackballed by Goodell, I would agree...

    He did make a mistake.... Even with a 30% pay cut he would be making crazy money and a high chance to get back to playoffs\Superbowl...
    On the flip side if that was the first offer the Steelers should have changed that to 25% to counter given the 150% effort he puts in...
    He is down to his last few years of being able to play.....
