During an interview with 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh, guard Ramon Foster revealed that one player thought that linebacker James Harrison was just hanging around to help out and didn’t realize that he’s actually the Steelers’ roster.
“It was a young guy. I won’t say who it was,” Foster said. “He actually thought James was retired, and he was just here helping out. So everything that he’s seen him do in the weight room, he’s got to realize that that’s what he’s about to go through. So he was like, ‘man, I thought that dude was retired and helping out!’ I was like, ‘no, he’ll be out here real soon’, and ‘he’s like, oh.’”
Harrison has been training on the sidelines and working out since Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin wants to keep his 37 year-old body fresh for the season.
