James Harrison: I don’t hate the Steelers

james harrison 2Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to move on from him, Bengals linebacker James Harrison doesn’t hate them.

“I don’t have a chip on my shoulder against the Steelers,” Harrison said, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I don’t hate the Steelers. All the things they’re saying, that the media is blowing it up to be … am I disappointed? Yeah, I’m disappointed. But when the negotiations first started, I basically knew the situation was going to be what it was going to be.

“I wish them the best, except for when we play. And I’m assuming they wish me the same, except when we play them.”

I think Harrison understands the NFL is a business and at the end of the day, the Steelers were good to him and helped him get a Super Bowl ring.
