Default Does Harrison agree to a pay cut?

Since we are $25 million over cap does he restructure? Last year he openly complained about Ben and Rashard yet I don't recall him even making a tackle in the SB. Then this year, especially in the Denver playoff game, he was invisible. I'll be interested in seeing how this plays out.

Looks like a few will have to agree to a cut or retire......

No. Harrison is underpaid, if anything.

Yeah, and most likely some will retire anyway. There are/should be a few vets retiring that will free up the salary cap. As much as I've loved Aaron Smith, $4 mil on a DE that doesn't play is to much. Hampton and/or Hoke will go, I do think it's Farrior's time, Hines HAS TO restructure or retire. If I was going to have a LB restructure, not Farrior which is a given, I would be looking to Timmons. I don't remember exactly how large his contract was, but I know it was pretty good, and IMO this year he was average. Harrison is a beast, he played contain against Denver like he was told to, you could even see him running from Tebow to get a better contain position on a few plays, he followed the game plan. There is no excuse for last years SB, but usually he makes plays in spite of being held every play. If they ask him he may agree, but with all these fines lately I don't see him wanting to take a cut.

No, Timmons should give half his paycheck to Harrison. Woodley was dominating before his injury. Unfortunately, he just wasn't 100% for the rest of the season after that.

lets think about tapping into the colon bank before we go insulting a main contributor of this team.

james is the best OLB in the league if you ask me. i guess some could argue ware, but most of them are cowpoke fans and i could care less what they think.

Terrell Suggs also might disagree

Is there somewhere online that shows what the players contracts are? What is Colon's contract? He definitely hasn't earned any money, you can't earn money on the bench.

And Terrell Suggs would be wrong. Suggs is almost as good as Harrison, but Harrison is held every single play and is still better, realistically Harrison is probably the best with Ware being the next arguable runner up. Remember how well Harrison was playing before all the fines and before O tackles realized that they could hold him all game and get away with it? He's still that same player.
