    What an asinine comment. You don't think that these guys get, and rely on, advice from their agents?

    I believe parise told james to take the deal, but james thought he could get more on the open market.

    The Steelers most likely will wait until after the draft b4 they entertain an offer to Harrison.

    Guys, we all loved JH and contract aside now, I really don't see the Steelers calling his agent. They are going with Jason Worlids now and look for another OLB in the draft. I don't blame the Steelers or James trying to get the best contact he could get eleswhere, they tried and it didn't work out.

    It's Worlids time now, we seen flashes of his ability to pressure the QB with 5 sacks on a limited basis, maybe with a full season under his belt those 5 become 10 or better. He's on his last year of his rookie contract and I'm sure he wants to be the best he can be for the Steelers and his future, so he's the next man up.

I'm like, "Welcome Back, James" what took you so long... There's your #92 right over there by your locker. Now let's get ready to bitch-slap somebody".
    Is a "healthy James Harrison possible?" That is the question
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Is a healthy Jason Worilds possible? A healthy LaMarr Woodley?

    What about Troy Polamalu? Emmanuel Sanders? Maurkice Pouncey? Even Ben Roethlisberger?
    Not trying to be an ar$$e, but it seems like they've all had their injury issues...

    You're all nuts if you don't want him back. He's a wrecking ball.

    Sign him for what his cap hit is. That way he's back and we have no risk.

    harrison strikes me as the kind of guy who would be insulted by being asked to take a paycut after what he has put into it. Numerous times he has been called the hardest worker on the team by his coaches and to then be asked to take less money might have pissed him off. He may have thought he would get more from somebody else.

    pure speculation on my part, but it makes just as much sense as believing his agent told him to turn down the steelers offer. Who would have a better sense of the market, james or parise?

    That's the point: He wasn't a wrecking ball last year. Anyone who focused on him (which I do, because he was such a great player), saw a guy who was a full step late to the play, who could no longer dip his shoulder nor walk the Tackle back into the QB... granted, his stats slightly upticked toward the end of the season (which might take as playing into shape)... But it's a gamble to make that assumption.
