Steelers LB James Harrison is one of the leaders of the Pittsburgh D, but it appears he may not be around much longer to lead them.
Reports from Ed Bouchette of the Post-Gazette states that the Steelers are inching closer to releasing Harrison as the team and his agent can’t come to terms on a lesser deal.
Bouchette says that the talks are “at an impasse,” and there’s a good chance that the five-time Pro Bowl LB will be released.
Harrison is set to make $6.57 million this season, and right now for a Steelers team that is still very much over the cap, it’s a number they can’t afford.
The agent for Harrison says the LB wants to stay with the Steelers, but if he and Harrison don’t budge, he won’t ba around much longer.
