Default This is why you never give up on a player

Look at James Harrison:

2002-2003: Spent time on and off the practice squad for Steelers.

2004: Spent time with the Ravens in the Offseason but was released, then was signed by the Steelers for a third time because Clark Haggans sustained an injury. Harrison said if it wasn't for Haggans injury, he would have retired at Age 26, and become a vetenerian.

2005: Harrison didn't have a big role on the SBXL team but he got his championship ring. A prized posession that numerous athletes dream about.

2006: Re-signed by the Steelers to a 4-year deal. Had an mediocre season as the Steelers fell to a dissapointing 8-8.

2007: Named Starter, Team MVP, and Pro Bowl. Including is monstrous MNF game against the Ravens where he had 9 Total Tackles, 3.5 sacks, 3 Forced Fumbles, 1 Fumble Recovery and 1 Interception. He also had a body slam on Ravens Safety Ed Reed.

2008: Pro-Bowl, Team MVP, DPOY Nominee (hopefully winner), hopefully All-Pro 1st team

Bull! He bodyslamed that Clowns fan whor an onto the field!

Also, I just can't see him as a vetenerian, you have to be compassionate to do that job and when I look at him, I don't see someone with tons of compassion for other living things...at least on the football field.

His age and value scares me a bit. He could pretty much demand what he wants and several teams would line up on his doorstep. I hope he sticks with the Steelers the way the fans and organization stuck with him, because they can't afford to pay him an outrageous amount.

For every James Harrison out there, theres about 9 Scott Shields, and 12 Fred Gibsons. Sometimes you just have to let players that arent very good players hit the streets.

Because they're one of two teams that is apparently exempt from the salary cap and free to spend as much money as they want. Dallas is the other, but I had to pick one.

Dallas is ridiculous. They can get away with whatever.

to be fair, Jackson had to switch positions. I think he could have done well at his natural position at DE.
