Default Steelers discuss contract renegotiation with James Harrison

Steelers discuss contract renegotiation with Harrison

March 5, 2013
By Ed Bouchette / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers have have been discussing the contract situation of James Harrison with his agent, Bill Parise, to try to reduce the linebacker's salary cap hit for 2013.

Harrison, who will be 35 in two months, is scheduled to make salaries of $6.57 million this season and $7.575 million in 2014 in the final two years of his contract.

Parise did not say if those discussions include a request by the Steelers for a reduction in salary or a restructured contract that could spread out the salary cap hit this year with an extension that neither side would expect to be fulfilled.

"We're talking," Parise said. "Both sides want to try to do something. We're trying to find common ground."

We can't bring him back. He was a good bandaid option for a year while we're finding the right guy to play opposite Woodley, but he's not the answer anymore. He's 35 years old and not willing to take a pay cut. That equals the road out of town, James.

while it IS a cut throat business, the rooneys are a bit more of a family run organization. i still think james will be back with loyalty to service and opportunity being shown by both parties.

And, that loyalty by the owners is why some guys will kill for this team.

Bring him back only if he takes a paycut; if the Steelers can resign him, I think they will look at picking up a Safety or WR in the draft. If they go Safety, for sure they will try and move down. I think if Keenan Allan is there at #17, they pull the trigger.

I thought selling internal organs on the black market was illegal? Oh wait. You said "give".

Harrison’s agent, Steelers looking for “common ground”

Posted by Darin Gantt on March 5, 2013



The agent for Steelers linebacker James Harrison said early on in the process he didn’t think he should have to take a pay cut.

But agent Bill Parise said Tuesday he’s talking to the Steelers, to see if there’s a way to carve into Harrison’s cap charge.

Parise told Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the two sides were working to find a resolution.

“We’re talking,” Parise said. “Both sides want to try to do something. We’re trying to [find] common ground.”

The soon-to-be 35-year-old linebacker is scheduled to make $6.57 million this year and $7.575 million next year. Parise did not say whether the Steelers offered a pay cut.

It would be easy enough to drop the cap charge if Harrison hadn’t dug in heels on a pay cut, but it might be tricky to balance the need for short-term room with the long-term interest of the team.
