With the Pittsburgh Steelers way over the 2013 salary cap, there have been some rumors that they will likely release linebacker James Harrison.
Harrison’s agent Bill Parise told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the Steelers haven’t confronted him about Harrison’s contract yet.
With the Steelers about $14 million over the projected $121 million salary cap, there has been speculation they might ask the 35-year-old Harrison to substantially reduce his pay. He is due to make $6.57 million in 2013 and $7.575 million in 2014.
But Parise said Thursday that while Harrison “would (be willing) to help with that,” he and the Steelers have held no such talks.
With Harrison unwilling to take a pay cut, I still can’t imagine him back in Pittsburgh next season. He may just have to continue his dodgeball career.
