James Harrison tweets his goodbye to the Steelers

James Harrison AP

For days, it’s been clear the Steelers and James Harrison weren’t getting anywhere in talks about lowering his salary/cap hit.

So now the inevitable has apparently happened, with Harrison tweeting out his goodbye to Steelers fans.

Harrison played well when he got well last year, but approaching 35 years old and with a $6.57 million salary, the Steelers did what they have done so many times — they walked away from one of their own sooner rather than later.

    Looks like the steeler swill be in the basement with the browns, again

  2. jarvis1104 says: Mar 9, 2013 11:55 AM

    At his age, with 2yrs max left in his career, I would’ve hoped he would take a pay cut to retire a Steeler. I guess 3mil meant a lot to him

  3. pdxpanther says: Mar 9, 2013 11:56 AM

    The first big hit he lays on Ben, Steeler fans will immediately cry foul and say he’s a dirty player. After years of blindly defending him.

  4. ravenator says: Mar 9, 2013 11:57 AM

    The foundation is crumbling. Many years of mediocrity await you Pittsburgh.

  5. filthymcnasty1 says: Mar 9, 2013 11:57 AM

    Goodbye James, and let the long and painful rebuilding process begin.

  6. scoobies05 says: Mar 9, 2013 11:57 AM

    not a steeler fan at all but very classy james

  7. ravenator says: Mar 9, 2013 12:02 PM

    What a great run as of late. Watching your rival take control of the division, getting Tebowd out of the playoffs, going 8-8 and missing it entirely, watching the Ravens win the Super Bowl and Flacco winning MVP. My question is were you and Woodley watching him together collecting your checks from the worst financial bookeeper in the NFL?

  8. jimbroney says: Mar 9, 2013 12:02 PM

    Again?

  9. ravenscaps48 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:02 PM

    SIGN HIM!

  10. ryanclark25 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:03 PM

    You might be gone James, but your td back in super bowl 43 will be part of the Steelers organisation forever. Among many other moments. Thank you for everything.

    You stand corrected..looks like steelers will be in the basement with ravenator again…..priceless.

  12. lilrob10201 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:06 PM

    I think James Harrison has one more year in him.

  13. stainlessstill says: Mar 9, 2013 12:06 PM

    “The Steelers are too old! They will never compete again! BLAHBLAHBLAH” Next man up!

    Thank you for your service, James Harrison. You were one helluva ferocious player and have your spot ETCHED in Pittsburgh Steelers Hall of Fame. Helluva run! Thank you for all the great memories and good luck to whichever team gives you a new home. GO STEELERS!

  14. 4suresure says: Mar 9, 2013 12:07 PM

    Damn Damn Damn

  15. eja642 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:08 PM

    It’s a plug-and-play pass rush spot. I don’t know why the steelers pay anyone big money to play that position. It’s clearly not talent driven. Dick LeBeau has never had a non-productive pass rusher from Harrison’s spot.

  16. beerbudsnbevo says: Mar 9, 2013 12:09 PM

    It is time the Steelers start to rebuild…they are an old team.

    They have a solid head coach, just give them a couple years and they will be back in the mix.

    not a steeler fan at all but very classy james

    Can’t keep a promise? So you can call me out then post on here…raven logic? At least you say something intelligent unlike your rabid posting buddy ravenator. Give me an honest opinion scoobie…aren’t you embarrassed to have ravenator as the face of the raven fan base? Be honest not just funny, both if you can.

  18. joenash72 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:10 PM

    James Harrison and Richard Sherman on the same defense in Seattle?

    Hope so………

  19. ravenatorblowsgoats says: Mar 9, 2013 12:10 PM

    @ravenator….I can t wait to see Flacco bring down your organization now that he got his contract….best part about when the ravens lose you go into hiding and keep your pie hole shut…better hope boldin stays because anybody watching the superbowl knows he bailed out your mediocre qb time and time again…..can’t wait to see your lil troll ass go into hiding here very shortly.

  20. jarvis1104 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:12 PM

    The Steelers have survived through the losses of Hines Ward, Aaron Smith, James Farrior, Alan Faneca, and Joey Porter just to name a few. Now we’re supposed to be crumble because of Harrison? No way. Whether you like a team or not doesn’t matter, we all know their are a few teams in the league who continously manage to stay competitive. The Steelers are one of those teams.

  21. emmac13 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:13 PM

    It will be twice as bad for the Steelers if he stays in AFC North. If Kruger leaves Bmore they may look at Harrison. It just might benefit James. Bmore is ahead of the Steelers to go back to SB.

  22. classyjacklambert says: Mar 9, 2013 12:14 PM

    I gotta think the Cardinals are going to make a play for him. They’ve made a habit out of taking the old Steelers the last couple years and I think Arians will keep that up. Nofool please just stop responding to Ravenator. If no one pays attention to him he will get bored and go away like kids who stop getting the reaction they are looking for by acting out always do.

  23. mikebrownistheworstownerinprosports says: Mar 9, 2013 12:14 PM

    Bengals > Steelers. It’ll probably stay that way for awhile too.

  24. bengalskuta82 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:15 PM

    Well Ray Rice was right when he said on Superbowl week that the AFCN will be a two horse race.. Bengals vs Ravens..It is looking that way right now..You reporters that strongly disagreed with him can start scratching your heads.

  25. bobzilla1001 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:16 PM

    This news is disturbing…
    In the past, when the Steelers have released a quality team leader, they’ve always had someone of at least equal quality waiting in the wings. For example: When the Steelers (Tomlin) cut Joey Porter in 2007, they already knew they had a beast to unleash in Harrison.
    There is no one currently on the roster the equal of James Harrison, not talent-wise, work ethic-wise or of leadership quality.
    Never in all my years of following the Steelers can I remember such a mess of an off-season as this one.

  26. idolized1 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:17 PM

    I blame Goodell for this!

  27. ottograham says: Mar 9, 2013 12:20 PM

    @ravenaterd

    Look pal you’re posts seem to be getting more ignorant with each passing day of your team winning the championship. Congrats man enjoy the offseason. But your posts are less and less plausible with each comment. You seem stuck to this notion that Colbert cant manage a team. Dude we have just as many championships as you in the last 15 years. What gives? Ozzie and Colbert are both fantastic at what they do. If you think the Steelers are going to roll over the AFC North then you simply are ignorant and not credible. Ben, as much as I dislike him, will ball if he stays healthy. Ravens defense and Steelers defense will both be average squads next year (even though we say that every season Steelers still ended up #1 overall many times) so we will see which overpaid QB gets the win. My money is not on the champs.

    Get a life dude. If I ever had to displeasure of meeting you I promise I would spit in your general direction.

  28. adadfff says: Mar 9, 2013 12:22 PM

    He should have retired a yinzer. He is the epitome of what that organization stands for. Be proud Pittsburgh…Roethlisberger is now the sole face of your franchise

    Ha ha ha ha.

  29. brownoholic says: Mar 9, 2013 12:24 PM

    You casual “fans” don’t understand that the Steelers don’t slump for long. Only way I see it getting truly ugly is if they don’t knock it out of the park with Ben’s replacement.

    I may hate’em, but I sure know my enemies…

  30. midwestwarrior says: Mar 9, 2013 12:25 PM

    the only reason i click on steelers related posts is to see ravenator rile up steelers fans, it is always hilarious, keep it going HAHA

  31. citizenstrange says: Mar 9, 2013 12:30 PM

    Man, I hate to see him go. He was injured last year but IMO he still has another All-Pro quality year or two left in him.

    Thanks for everything and best of luck!

  32. Nofoolnodrool says: Mar 9, 2013 12:33 PM

    Would love to, but I’ve been on this thread for over a year and the turd hasn’t changed one bit. He is actually getting worse. But with a respectable handle likes yours asking nicely I will give it a rest. Don’t blame me if it gets worse.

  33. audient says: Mar 9, 2013 12:35 PM

    If this football thing doesn’t work out for Harrison, somewhere there is a loan shark who needs an enforcer.

  34. thepittsburghkid says: Mar 9, 2013 12:37 PM

    None of you know the roster like you think you do. I think it’s a very strong possibility that Jason Adjepong Worilds could step up big this year. He’s got some years in and he’s at that age (25) where guys will come into their own. P.s. if you don’t pay attention to the sad fat kids that post ridiculous sh@t, they will go away. Your attention is their life blood on this site.

  35. stillers213 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:37 PM

    See ya James. It’s been a good run…. but mgmt seems to always know when it’s time. I hope you don’t follow the same path to anonimity as the Steelers have before you ….i.e. Chad Brown and Randel El did.

  36. Nofoolnodrool says: Mar 9, 2013 12:39 PM

    Ah yes another steeler thread that makes the room temperature IQ guys show us their best. Come on bring it we are very accustomed to your mindless rants. Glad we can help you reduce your stress. Proud to be a steeler fan for over forty years not like the bandwagon rat turd boys.

  37. stillers213 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:40 PM

    …. and Ravens fans, Jacco’s contract will be the beginning of the end for you. It’s ironic that Boldin, the primary reason for Jacco’s success, made him what he is at his own expense!

    Oh, and by the way, your team is still purple! :)

  38. Stiller43 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:42 PM

    Why do you guys respond to the ravenator?

    He’s a troll (and should be banned) just trolling for attention, and you keep giving it to him. Just leave him be.

  39. patriotinvasion says: Mar 9, 2013 12:43 PM

    2 rings. Super Bowl pick 6. Old school style. Respect from this rival Pats fan. Salute.

  40. dachozen1 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:45 PM

    Thanks for all joy you have given us. You played the game as only a Steeler and true old school fan of the game could appreciate. I wish you well on your journey…

  41. stillers213 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:46 PM

    Best Harrison moment is when he slammed that stupid Browns’ fan to the ground after he ran out on the field.

    And ya know, it’s disturbing to see the Bengal and Raven trolls bonding together. Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!

  42. eja642 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:46 PM

  43. ravensfan19 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:46 PM

    Rough times in Store for the Steelers. Harrison gone, Mendenhall gone, Horrible run game, Big Ben always getting Hurt, Clark, Taylor, Polamalu all Old. Wallace Gone. The Steelers are heading for basement status in the AFC North. But Hey Steeler fans the Playoff days may be behind you but aleast you will get a Top 10 Pick in the 2014 Draft.

  44. steelers4385 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:48 PM

    Greedy prick.

  45. thetooloftools says: Mar 9, 2013 12:49 PM

    I thought lowering the rookie pay scale was to reward older players. How’s that working out?

  46. jagsfan1 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:49 PM

    Don’t let the door hit you….have fun playing for the league minimum for 1 yr and then out of the league…then off to Joey Porterville with your pitbulls and guns.

  47. stillers213 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:49 PM

    ottograham to Ravenator: “Get a life dude. If I ever had to displeasure of meeting you I promise I would spit in your general direction.”

    Relax dude, he’s only 14 years old! :)

  48. mazblast says: Mar 9, 2013 12:54 PM

    I’m an old guy for here. I survived the horrible Steelers of the Sixties (my first NFL game was at Pitt Stadium in ’64 or ’65), I can survive a few years of mediocrity.

    It’s not as if the Steelers are going to turn into the Bengals and be 0 for 45 years.

    The Ravens are a worthy champion. If the Super Bowl winner can’t be my team, I’m cool with it being our biggest rival–especially since they knocked Tammy Brady and his (?) team out.

    As for James Harrison, so long and thank you for everything. You gave us a lot of thrills and helped our team win two Super Bowls–and we love you for that. It’ll be strange seeing you in another uniform, but understandable. I don’t begrudge you taking the opportunity to play elsewhere should it present itself, but know when it’s time to unlace the shoes and take it easy.

  49. pgh15212 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:54 PM

    As good of a 5 year run as any defensive player in NFL history!!!!

  50. st1llerz1 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:54 PM

    While ravenator has at least been a ridiculous troll for the long haul, the really hilarious thing about Steelers stories these days is all the shiny new ratbird handles that troll the threads since luckimore “won” the Super Bowl.

    The comforting thing is that all these new found ratturd enthusiasts will disappear once the inevitible meltdown begins next season under the burden of the joe flaccid haul.

    Best of luck James. Whether you ultimately test the waters and return to the fold or sign somewhere else, you provided many memorable moments over the last several years. I believe he has a good year or two left; however, it’s next man up in Pittsburgh.

    GO STEELERS!

  51. mullman76 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:55 PM

    The steelers are in decline.

  52. jmat40 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:55 PM

    Ray Lewis only participated in a murder and is a HUGE phony yet he’s loved and adored and placed on a pedestal. James Harrison is who he is and makes no apologies for it and he’s vilified.
    The double standard is alive and well.

  53. vincentbojackson says: Mar 9, 2013 12:56 PM

    They didn’t win 6 Lombardi’s by being afraid to make tough business decisions.

  54. ravenmuscle says: Mar 9, 2013 12:56 PM

    Wont be long before Polamalu hits the road next …limping all the way with his chronically sore calf muscle.

    The entire Steeler defense will be collecting Social Security next year.

  55. scoobies05 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:57 PM

    you got me nofool. just giving a shout out to one of the players that made the rivalry great. nothing disrespectful at all. i did preface my remarks with not a steeler fan. as far as ravenator what he does is his business. he is obviously passionate. similar to guys like crown and johntonio and ben. anyways…i am going back to my ravens posts

  56. dwight123 says: Mar 9, 2013 12:57 PM

    Kuselias called him an idiot basically on PFT tv for one of his comments they showed on a PFT post. That should have clued him in. He probably liked it though. :D He trolls my teams’ threads too. Guess he favors AFC teams that are pretty consistent winners.

  59. steel2372 says: Mar 9, 2013 1:00 PM

    Salary cap issues happens to every team at some point in time. Very classy goodbye to Steelers Nation James. You are one hell of a football player. Wish you could have finished your days with Steelers Nation. I guess its true all good things must come to an end. You have two super bowl rings! Steelers Nation will miss you! Thank you for the hustle and great football you gave us! Long live you legend!

  60. smarterfootball says: Mar 9, 2013 1:03 PM

    Good, hopefully this guy is forced into retirement and we never have to see his dirty play and annoying complaints.

  61. steel2372 says: Mar 9, 2013 1:09 PM

    The Steelers may be heading for a few tough years but they had some really good season. Two super rings is not too bad! Every team goes through some rough times. I still wouldnt sleep on the Steelers if I were the Ravens or any other team in the AFCN. This team, when healthy, is still dangerous.

  62. adadfff says: Mar 9, 2013 1:10 PM

    Steelers suck

  63. stampnhawk says: Mar 9, 2013 1:15 PM

    2 year deal, and replace Leroy Hill? Yes please.

    Gives the other 2 young SEA linebackers , who are already good, the chance to have a bonafide vet to help them further their development quicker.

  66. hobbsstriped says: Mar 9, 2013 1:29 PM

    Im calling you out Ravenator. I never posted before but I can’t stand it anymore. You are a jerk. Your mother probably told you if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it at all, but you didn’t listen. I bet you enjoy kicking people when they’re down too. Well one day you will meet my friend, karma. I am looking forward to when it pays you and your team a visit.

  67. golfdude65 says: Mar 9, 2013 1:31 PM

  68. stillers6 says: Mar 9, 2013 1:32 PM

    Football is quite simply a brutal game and the wear & tear has caught up to the baddest man in the NFL. Like him or not he worked his way up the ladder and for that I think everyone can have some measure of the respect for JH. Best of Luck 92

  69. golfdude65 says: Mar 9, 2013 1:32 PM

    Good, hopefully this guy is forced into retirement and we never have to see his dirty play and annoying complaints.

    Not a steelers fan but he isn’t a dirty player.

  70. neepo13 says: Mar 9, 2013 1:34 PM

    the Steelers did what they have done so many times — they walked away from one of their own sooner rather than later.
    _____________________________________

    Ironically, it is the fact that they have not been doing that lately that has gotten them into their current cap situation. The Steelers have given top of the market deals to several aging vets and they stand to lose two young players entering their prime in Wallace and Lewis because of it.

  71. johntonioholmes says: Mar 9, 2013 1:37 PM

    It’s funny to see Ravens fans say anything about mediocrity.

    They just extended the most mediocre qb in the NFL at a ridiculous price.

    The Steelers will rebound. They always have. Colbert has a better record than Newsome in these matters.

  72. ironman721 says: Mar 9, 2013 1:39 PM

    Who has won the AFC North the past two years?? Who should have won the AFC Championship last year? Who won the AFC Championship this year? Who won the Super Bowl this year? THE RAVENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only thing that sucks more than the Steelers is steelr nation!!!! GO RAVENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  76. realdealsteel says: Mar 9, 2013 1:52 PM

    What’s so funny is they said the same thing when we let Loyd go, When we let Greene go…

    We will be fine. We are the Steelers and all we do is win Super Bowls.

    Good luck to Harrison.

  77. mlbbal52 says: Mar 9, 2013 1:52 PM

    I gotta be honest I thought Harrison was a little bit crazy in the head at times but he was a beast this dude made play after play…and yes I am a Raven fan.

  78. ravenaintor says: Mar 9, 2013 1:53 PM

    Just so you know: I am a huge loser that sits around the house all day. I obsess over Profootballtalk, and I get off by bringing down other team’s fans. I live in a fantasy world where I pretend that when the Ravens win I somehow benefit from it personally. So if you don’t care for me just keep in mind that my life is probably worse than yours, but just keep in mind that the Ravens are the world to me. Just saying!

  79. larryravor says: Mar 9, 2013 1:54 PM

    I hope that Harrison comes back and knocks the crap out of Mr. Injury – Roethlisberger. Then see what you all have to say. GO RAVENS!!!!!!

  80. mnomalley says: Mar 9, 2013 2:05 PM

    Steelers are really headed the wrong direction. Get ready for the world to witness the beat down from the Vikings on 9/29/13 in London

  81. osteelers says: Mar 9, 2013 2:05 PM

    The Steelers will be just fine without James Harrison. Sure Harrison has some life in him and will land on his feet some where, but the Steelers know what they’re doing, I can’t count the times a marquee player has left, either for more money or other wise, and the Steelers were fine. The fact of the matter is, with a salary cap inplace, you’re not going to be able to keep all the players all the time. It’s the nature of the NFL. There are some who think its the end of the road for the Steelers and clearly they have not watched football for too long. The Rooney’s got this thing figured and have been doing it better than a lot of other franchise’s in the rest of the league. To predict that this team will win the Superbowl and this one wont in early March, is just foolish and show’s how little you know about football.

  82. lp0320 says: Mar 9, 2013 2:23 PM

    Sad to see you go James – your work ethic is amazing, you gave your heart and soul to your team. I hope you land in the NFC where we won’t have to play against you too much!

    That being said, I’m sure I don’t understand this, but if you sign a contract for a certain amount, why isn’t it honored? I think on both sides, if you sign a deal, that should be your payment – no one holds a gun to either side and makes them sign. So if James doesn’t want to take a paycut, he should be paid. Just the same as if you are in the middle of your contract, it shouldn’t matter what kind of year you had, honor it.
    No renegotiating. Whatever happened to fulfilling the commitment? Owners and Players.

  83. alchemistcirca1979 says: Mar 9, 2013 2:24 PM

    It hurts to see James go, he was a great, hard nosed player for the Steelers.

  84. Nofoolnodrool says: Mar 9, 2013 2:26 PM

    What is living proof of ravenators penchant for BS and stupidity is what just happen with Boldin. The genius was saying Ozzie the wonderful was drying off after walking on water and would take care of business. The genius said for everyone to relax….best he could off the top of his head as he usually reads what his co authors write for him.
    Karma wins in the end and the little turd will get flushed.

  85. Deb says: Mar 9, 2013 2:30 PM

    Sad news because I would like to have seen James retire as a Steeler. But wait … that could still happen. Can’t believe he’ll have any takers unless Arians, like Whis, plans to continue positioning Arizona as the last stop on the road to retirement. So he may be retiring as a Steeler regardless of his plans. Or perhaps James will have more realistic expectations after testing the market for injury-riddled 35-year-old linebackers and will return to the Steelers for another year after all.

  86. larryravor says: Mar 9, 2013 2:31 PM

    Let Ozzie worry about Boldin. The Steelers need to worry about Mike Wallace.

  87. bobzilla1001 says: Mar 9, 2013 2:35 PM

    osteelers:
    It’s not just the loss of Harrison. Throw in the losses of Hines Ward, James Farrior and Aaron Smith all within a year of each other, coupled with the mind-boggling coaching of Tomlin, and you have nothing that should suggest that everything is wonderful and right on schedule.
    This is not about winning Super Bowls in March. This is about mourning the loss of an era, a kind of a era that comes along about every 20 years.
    I’ll match my Steelers Football IQ against yours anytime. The party is over, and there will not be another party like it in quite some time.

    Jason Worilds has yet to be mentioned in all of this. No matter, we will be talking about him for years to come.

    In all of this cap talk, cut, restructure talk the Steelers have quietly put together a YOUNG talented o-line with a scheme to compliment their strengths…..ssssshhhh dont tell nnnnoooo body

    My question is why is Willie Colon on the roster?

    osteelers,

    what sad song were you singing when Bill Cowher’s Steelers were 6-10?

    lol, how many Steeler superbowls ago was that 3 or 4?

    Yes it is bittersweet as it is the beginning of a new chapter in steeler history. Hate to see him go just like Joey Porter, but, we survived and moved on. He was a great steeler and his SB play will be played over and over in the minds of steeler nation. So steeler fans need to hitch up our big boy pants the ride may be rocky for awhile . In the end it will work out as it always has with success in time. We are not one year wonders like the rat birds.

    Respect to #92 for keeping up the great tradition of Outside ‘Backers strong for all these years in the Black and Gold.

    Whomever picks him up is going to have a good player but he played dirty a lot of times. Don’t like that, I mean dirty not just hard hits. illegal things. He is one of the reasons pittsburgh was known as having a dirty team

    Sooner rather then later? With the way that team played last year and his inability to get on the field I would say they were a year late in releasing him . They are on the verge of doing the same thing with Polamalu. A guy who has hurt his team more then he has helped the last 2 seasons. When he plays he’s good but he’s injured so often that you have to count his replacements play into what he does for the team. And his replacements have been horrible. If he struggles to get on the field again this season I would say they held onto him 3 years to long.

    This could end up being good for both Harrison and Steelers. Steelers need some rebounding, as you can’t limp along in the NFL between being an aging but competitive team. Building is the only way out.

    …unless you are the Raiders and get lucky for a couple seasons.
