    Silverback

    Steelers LB Harrison to attend workoutsComment Email Print Share By James Walker

    Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison will be present as the Super Bowl champions open their offseason workout program Monday despite unresolved contractual issues, his agent said.




    Harrison

    "Yes, James will be there," agent Bill Parise said of the NFL's 2008 defensive player of the year.

    Both sides remain in constant talks, so there was no need for Harrison to miss the session, according to Parise, as it could lead to unwarranted tension.

    Though Parise wouldn't elaborate on the negotiations, he recently told ESPN.com that both sides remained hopeful but far apart.

    "We're talking and meeting pretty regularly, almost daily, but we're having a difficult time getting to where we need to be," Parise said last month.


    AFC North

    ESPN.com's James Walker writes about all things AFC North in his division blog.

    • Blog network: NFL Nation

    Harrison, 30, is coming off a year in which he recorded 101 tackles, 16 sacks and seven forced fumbles for Pittsburgh.

    He made a salary of $1.2 million last season, making him one of the league's best bargains.

    So far the Steelers have not been active in free agency while focusing mostly on keeping their own players.

    Signing Harrison to a long-term deal is one of the team's biggest internal priorities.

    Well that's a good sign, but I sure hope they get his contract worked out soon.

    Damn, Offseason workouts already? His deal will get done soon..on shear terror alone, nobody wants James Harrison angry at you.

    "He's running around there, running his mouth, doing all that, but if you watch him on film and really look, where was Ray Lewis? He was nowhere to be found. I could have tackled the water boy and had as many tackles as him. He didn't do nothing today. He's all mouth. When you talk like that, that's what happens: You get hit in the mouth. He's over there crying now, thinking about what went wrong. You got your *** whipped, that's what." ~ Peazy

    He'll get signed, he's valuable right now. Hopefully he won't follow Porter's footsteps.

    So we should praise James Harrison for honoring his current contract?.......People remember he isn't a FA and he still has a year left on his original contract extension....I think he deserves a pay increase no doubt and he has earned it.....But I'm going to bend over backwards and praise a million dollar athlete for honoring a contract he signed...lol

    I refuse to acknowledge James Harrison as this so-called "Silverback" nickname given to him college (a horrid one I might add). He will always be "Deebo" in my mind.

    I hate to be the Debbie Downer here but we will not sign him to a huge deal with multi years, look at Porter! He's getting older...
