Default James Harrison's agent says he is interested in the Ravens

Agent: James Harrison interested in Baltimore Ravens

By Dan Hanzus
Around the League Writer
Published: March 10, 2013 at 07:10 p.m. Updated: March 11, 2013 at 09:55 a.m.

Hours after being released by the Pittsburgh Steelers, James Harrison told NFL Network he wasn't "closed to playing for any team or any area."

Harrison's agent, Bill Parise, hammered home Harrison's wide-open viewpoint by making it known the five-time Pro Bowl linebacker is interested in joining the Baltimore Ravens.

"Baltimore would be a great fit for James," Parise said on Sunday, via The Baltimore Sun. "They're a contender and a class organization, so James would definitely be interested. I would think they would have a need with the market for (Paul) Kruger."

Kruger seemingly is destined to bolt as a free agent this week. So yes, the Ravens have a roster need, but might Harrison be a legitimate option? We haven't heard anything out of Baltimore's camp to indicate its thinking either way.

Harrison is out of work for the first time since 2004. Parise is telling the media that Harrison is interested in joining the Ravens because that's his job. There's little logic to closing any doors, even when one houses a team that has been a longtime adversary.

UPDATE: Harrison's agent is a busy guy. Parise told The Times-Picayune that Harrison also would be a "great fit" with the New Orleans Saints. Something tells us Parise would say Harrison was a great fit with the Rockford Peaches if enough guaranteed dollars were involved.

Harrison (or should i say Harrison's agent?) is interested in everyone and everybody right now. Parise loves everybody. The Raven's quote is for headlines and shock value to add.
Whomever pays, they'll play for. Will be interesting to see just how much of a paycut James will end up taking wherever he goes.

Thats the best:

line em up, shoot em down

Former Steelers LB James Harrison joining New Orleans Saints would be 'a long shot,' source says

Former Steelers linebacker James Harrison may "love to be in New Orleans" and may be a "great fit for the Saints," according to Harrison's agent Bill Parise. But the probability of Harrison joining the New Orleans Saints would be "a long shot," according to a league source.

joining the Saints (if he stayed firm on the money) would indeed be a long-shot. They're in salary cap hell just like we are.
Thats what happens when you give a guy named Brees $20+ million a year. Get ready, Baltimore - you're the next to feel this kind of pain. Hope they'll be happy giving all the money to Fluko and no one else.

I do bet Harrison's agent is busy. Plenty of teams will be in the hunt to get him at the right price. I'd look for the Browns and Pats in the AFC to be players.
