    I don't think it should be personal....Harrison was dumb to begin with....He did not take the pay cut even though his agent wanted that deal. Forced Steelers to cut him...all Steelers have is dead money cap...

    The only way Steelers are talking to him if he agreed to play on vet min. and i don't think Harrison would have done that....

    The only person to blame for this entire fiasco is Harrison...He valued himself way too much...

    All i can say is god luck to him...except when playing against the Steelers..
    Steelers Draft

    Rd 2: Kyle Van Noy - ILB/OLB
    Rd 3c: Philip Gaines - CB

    Rd 5: Justin Ellis - DT
    Rd 5c:Xavier Grimble -TE

    So the Steelers ask him to stay at a 34 yr old salary. He refuses, realizes no one really wants to pay him and then crawls back. Because the Steelers didn't fall over themselves to sign him, he should have a resentment?

    let me ask you something...if the Steelers allowed every vet to explore the market without consequence what kind of statement does that make to other vets? When Ben is 37 and we want him to take a pay cut, should he be able to explore the market first...then come back if it doesn't work out?

    if Harrison signs with the Bengals, his name will not be spoken in my house. He will be referred to as the traitor without a name.

I get that they wanted to see what they had in Worilds. But now the strongest team in the division will just get stronger. That just hurts no matter how you parse it out.
    Bungles are the strongest team? Huh????

    It makes sense that teams who were victimized the most by Harrison would show the most interest. I dont blame any player who wants to test the market because he thinks he is worth more. Sometimes it works out... sometimes it doesnt.

    we don't know that... they said NOT INTERESTED.... they refuesed to even talk...

    The Steelers made it personal, not Harrison. I don't blame James one bit. Hell, if it weren't for him and his instincts to is disregard the old mans defensive scheme the we lose the Superbowl to the Cardinals and Tomlin is 0-2 in the big game.

    Crap - this moment sucks... because i realized... they tied for the best record (better than ours) AND everyone here seems to think the Steelers are worse than last year at this point... the ravens lost a LOT... On paper, at least, it would appear the Bungals are the divisions strongest team...

    Bengals and former Steelers LB James Harrison will try to complete a deal this week. Harrison more signable than Karlos Dansby at this time.

    That's what I'm saying. Right now, the Bengals would be considered the strongest team in the division. The Ravens and Steelers have hemorrhaged talend since the end of the season, while the young Bengals have been able to maintain. Deebo will be a better OLB than their previous starter. They will have a guy that knows how to win in their locker room, which IMO, makes them even more dangerous.

    Bengals get stronger by adding an all-time Steeler great. That sucks, no matter how anyone tries to slice it.
