On Saturday, the Steelers cut linebacker James Harrison, after he refused to take a pay cut of approximately 30 percent, with the opportunity to earn back the difference.
And so Harrison instead took a 100-percent reduction on his $6.57 million compensation.
Now, the challenge for Harrison and his agent, Bill Parise, is to try to rebuild from scratch. And Parise is working overtime.
“Baltimore would be a great fit for James,” Parise told the Baltimore Sun.
“The Saints would be a great fit,” Parise separately told the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
The Browns would be a “great fit,” Parise separately told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Let’s save Bill some effort. Anyone willing to pay Harrison the $6.57 million the Steelers wouldn’t is a “great fit.”
Failing that, any team that runs a 3-4 defense would be a “great fit.”
Failing that, any team that runs a 4-3 defense would be a “great fit.”
