Could LB James Farrior Be Next Veteran Jettisoned By The Steelers?
A day after the Steelers told wide receiver Hines Ward they were releasing him, the agent for James Farrior said he thinks the veteran inside linebacker could be among the next to go according to Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "It's not a done deal, but the percentages just aren't there," said Ralph Cindrich, who represents Farrior. Farrior, a 15th-year veteran, is entering the final year of a contract that will pay him $2.825 million in 2012. The Steelers could clear more space under the salary space and continue to retool a team that is in transition by releasing Farrior. Cindrich said he has not had any discussions with the Steelers regarding Farrior, who turned 37 in April, or whether the two-time Pro Bowler would be willing to restructure his contract or take a pay cut. Like Ward, Farrior is planning to play elsewhere if the Steelers release him. "James wants to play and wants to play with the Steelers," Cindrich said. "The question is, do they have room for him?"
