Steelers LB James Harrison Wiling To Restructure Contract To Stay In Pittsburgh
According to Ralph Paulk of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Steelers OLB James Harrison is open to restructure his contract in order to be back with the team next season.
“Change is part of the game, and no one can play this game forever,” said Harrison. “I‘ll wait for OTAs to roll back around and get out there, and whoever we‘ve got, I‘ll hit the ground running. I believe I‘ll be back. I‘ll have time to do the proper therapy treatment that I‘ll need and rehab my knee. I won‘t be out there trying to get it good enough so I can play the next week.”
Harrison, who has two years remaining on his contract and is scheduled to make $6.57 million next season. His contract will count $10 million against the team’s salary cap, so there’s a good chance that he’s approached about restructuring his deal to free up some much needed cash.
Harrison was one of the most dominant players in the league, but he has been dealing with a number of injuries in recent years. If Harrison is willing to take a pay cut and differ money, then it seems likely that he could be back with the team.
