Default Harrison's agent plans to meet with Steelers

Harrison's agent plans to meet with Steelers

By Mike Prisuta

The agent for Steelers linebacker James Harrison said Monday that it's likely he will meet face-to-face with the Steelers at the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis about a contract extension for his client.

"It looks that way," agent Bill Parise said. "We've been talking. We are talking. We'll continue to talk."

Draft-eligible prospects will be worked out at the combine from Saturday-Feb. 24.

Harrison, a two-time Steelers MVP and the NFL Defensive Player of the Year this season, is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent following the 2009 campaign.

Harrison made a reported base salary of $1.2 million in 2008 the third year of a four-year deal signed in April 2006. That contract was worth $5.5 million before incentives, including a $1.375 million signing bonus.

"It's been fine," Parise said of his talks with the Steelers. "We haven't called them any names yet, and they haven't called us any.

"I'd love for it to be sooner rather than later, but it's a process."

Yes Harrison should get a contract extension. I just hope he does not get to greedy. But I don't think he will.

They'll get a deal done for Deebo. I have no doubts.

Hopefully this meeting includes a contract, a pen, and a few autographs on said contract:

Rooney and Harrison are two major ones!!!

I must ask this question, it's been burning at me lately. I'm all for keeping Harrison, but why does it seem that nobody pimped Porter like this when his contract was up? It seemed like everybody was alright for the most part with him leaving. Harrison is about the same age Joey was when he left for Miami. Did we not keep him strictly because of cap space? Are we trying hard to keep Harrison because we have nobody to take his place and it's just a timing issue? Just curious what everyone thinks.

Not to mention that Porter was pretty much the heart and soul of our team as far as emotion went. Sometimes, you can't put a price on stuff like that!
