Default Re: Harris: Cheaper to keep Steelers’ Harrison

That would have been a nightmare for offenses.

3 out of 6 of his seasons as a starter have resulted in 8 FF+Ints. That is unreal for any player let alone a linebacker.
Harrison played sparingly in his early years so he had much less abuse to his body. It's a good thing, because he fell apart the last couple of years.
