    I would take him back but it would be between vet min & under 2 mil. He is already costing the Steelers close to 5 mil this season. He would know up front he is going to see signficant decrease in snap count to get Worilds on the field. That would benefit him too keeping him fresh for the end of season and possibly post season. 1 YEAR DEAL.
    2017 Draft:
    1st Njoku TE
    2nd Rivers or Willis OLB
    3a Davis ILB
    3b Witherspoon or Griffin CB
    4th Dobbs QB
    5th Conner RB
    6th Nicholson S
    7th Ebukam OLB

    If Worilds could have performed at the same level as James Harrison in 2012 wouldn't he have been on the field and James on the bench? Wouldn't the Steelers have known then, they were going to release Harrison? Instead, the Steelers made an offer to Harrison at a reduced price hoping to keep him, for what? To be a backup at 70% of his salary? For leadership at 70% of his salary? No, they wanted him back at a reduced rate because he's the best OLB they have and they were hoping the incentives to earn his entire salary would get him to sign. He's still the best OLB they would have, unfortunately, he isn't a member of the team at this point.

    According to Bouchette, the door has been closed for Harrison with the Steelers.
    Well at least for now I believe. Obviously they're not dead set on Worilds if they're looking at that Cowboys OLB and Freeney.

    If Bouchette says it's closed he'll probably sign by Friday.

    Awesome.

    If he's not signed by the third week, we will pick him up then.

    And so do we...


    Seriously... if the guy still has value and we were willing to pay him decent money a few weeks ago, would we really let egos get in the way of signing him now? I can understand if we dumpped a truckload of money on somone else but we haven't.
