Whats the point of even trying this year? Do we think they will get any pass rush with fatty Lamar or Worilds? We are gonna stink this year.

Agreed....... Harrison was my favorite Stiller, and the number one reason why the team was winning these past few seasons...........

Looks like we'll be playing with the Clowns the next few seasons.

I don't know guys...everybody has a price and from what I'm reading, James' was too high. It's not like plenty of other guys haven't had to restructure. It's possible the guy could have 1-2 more good years in him but with his back and knee, it's a pretty big risk.

The Steelers paid a lot of guys over the last few years in trying to eke out another super bowl win...we got a trip but not another Lombardi. Seems to me like we didn't develop enough young players along the way and might have to pay the price for a couple years. Oh well, it was a heckuva run, by most teams' standards.

These guys who seek out another year of the big bucks....seems to me they miss a shot at a full-blown retirement party that would probably net them some endorsement money to make up for it. Instead they head off to nowheresville and then show up again at some celebrity golf tournament in the 'burgh and try to work their way back into favor. I wonder if it's really a positive financial transaction for them.

I agree with Pommah. Harrison was my favorite player, but the Steelers know what their doing. It is a business unfortunately. He will certainly be missed but the defense will be fine. Don't go throwing away your Steeler jerseys just yet. Team

Let's not forget that we've cut Harrison before..twice I believe.

He was undrafted and cut in camp, and spent seasons on our practice squad after no one picked him up on waivers.

We'll see who wants him now and for how long.

This is not good. not good at all. I'm starting to get a knot in my gut worse than last year. Cut our best pass rusher. WTF?
