James Harrison has drawn little interest on the free market. Why both he, and the #Steelers look bad in this deal:
It’s become clear that Harrison will not see anything near the $6.57 million he was to make in salary with the Steelers this year, but then the Steelers were unwilling to pay that either. What they were willing to pay is anyone’s guess at this point – there was one report they wanted Harrison to take a 30 percent paycut and Harrison refused.
Unless Harrison gets absolutely no offers elsewhere, he’s unlikely to return to the Steelers, even if their final offer was more than what he might make elsewhere.
It's called p-r-i-d-e.
So Harrison loses money, and the Steelers lose a player they needed.
