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.
It's been a great run but all good things must come to a end. Thank you Steelers Nation I will miss you all!—

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.
