James Harrison Wont Take Pay Cut

James Harrison is willing to work with the Steelers to lower his salary cap number, but hes not willing to take a pay cut just to stay with the team that drafted him and developed him.

Harrisons agent, Bill Parise, told John Harris of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that he still thought his client was a bargain (although what else would he say).

Of course, the Steelers could make a decision on the 34-year-old outside linebacker independent of Harrisons wishes also.

Could it happen? It certainly could. The NFL can cut any player at any time, Parise said. Having said that, if James Harrison was released, there would be 31 NFL teams interested in him.

Can we help the Steelers by restructuring James contract? Were certainly willing to do that. Do we need to take less money? I dont think so. Personally, I think hes a bargain.
