It's not like James is the first high profile athlete to overestimate what people would pay for his services and he won't be the last. He took a gamble and lost out this time.
JH felt he was worth a certain amount and the market didn't agree... isn't the first or last time this will happen I just hope we were right about him.
I bet he would feel like a bigger idiot if he took our offer and didn't even try the market. I think it may have led to some bad blood in the locker room too.
HArrison needs to fire the agent ASAP....
Bungholes got him for peanuts....If i was Harrison i would have retired .

Unfortunately for James, the Steelers were right...
Unfortunately for both, James is now a Bengal...
From the sound of it James made it clear he knew he was gone before negotiations even started.
