Default Re: James Harrison Leaves Steelers Facility Prior to Wednesday Practice

Which gets back to Timmons underperforming on his contract - Foote has played better than I expected but pressure up the middle on some pass rushes would help

Harrison has been wearing down since 2010 and the idea Timmons was the next great LB looks more and more dubious
