    I don't think the Steelers will do anything until after the draft...

    people are acting like the steelers royally F'ed him and offered a 80% flat paycut.
    Who is acting like that? I think the Steelers offered him a fair deal and he got some bad advice.

    The only thing I can think is teams are worried about backlash from Goodell from signing him. Is it possible he got black balled by the league.

    I feel bad for Harrison. He's probably caught up in taking some bad advice. By all accounts, he's been the hardest working Steeler on the roster since he's been here. He's also been arguably one of the best defensive players to ever lace em up. Why should he take a pay cut?

    Sure we can all say he's old. And he's injured. And he's past his prime. Maybe true. Maybe not. Apparently the coaches don't think so based on them wanting him back. Whatever it is, I'm sure the competitive nature of James probably won't let his mind believe he's on the decline. He probably thinks he's the same guy he was when he was in his 20s. Heck, I still think I'm way younger than I actually am in my mind. It leads me to do all kinds of things my body reminds me I shouldn't have been doing a day later. But I never seem to get the point either.

    If we can somehow get him back, he'd still be one of the 3 superstars on this team. I'm kinda on James side on this. He probably deserves to get paid. And I'd love for him to get the chance to prove it with an offseason to get healthy again. I think everyone in the league is making a mistake on him.
    I'm thinking the same way. I just don't know how a man like Deebo could walk back into the locker room after being made to eat it like this. His pride has been one of his best assets, but it seems to be what will keep him from the Steelers.

    i'd bring him back at league minimum and have him as a backup, if he'd do it. time for worilds to get his crack. maybe put harrison in a few times a game or on longer drives or something.

    Technically his agent should be on the hook. By giving him bad advise, he forced the Steelers to write off $3M+ by cutting James, and that's why there's no money left to give James.

    If I were James, I send this guy a bill instead of a commission. He screwed James and the Steelers both.

    The agent works FOR James. If James wanted to sign that offer HE would have.
