Maybe former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison should have taken a pay cut, because he’s not getting any love, from anyone. Agents sure can convince their clients to go looking for the money, but if the money isn’t there, the agent can find another client; however, the player is stuck. That’s where Harrison is right now, stuck in a block of ice, literally, and he has no one to blame but himself and his agent. Harrison will never win any congeniality awards, he’s made it quite clear he’s out to hurt, disobey new rules on safety, and even dissed the President of the United States. So what did he expect when he hit the open market? One of the surliest players you’ll ever meet thought he’d have the world beating down his door for his services, and his agent let him think that. If he had taken the pay cut in Pittsburgh he’d have a job right now, but in addition to being one of the baddest men in town comes the ramifications. According to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com, Harrison’s name is the ‘coldest’ at the owner meetings. Wessling writes: ‘With NFL executives congregating in Phoenix over the weekend, SI.com's Peter King finds that Harrison is "the coldest name of them all" at the NFL Annual Meeting. Unable to find a single person willing to admit an interest in Harrison, King believes the 34-year-old will have to settle for less than half of the $6.57 million he was scheduled to earn with the Steelers. Frankly, King's report isn't the least bit surprising. While Harrison remains stout against the run, it was obvious that he had lost a few steps as a pass rusher last season. No team with a 3-4 defense is going to spend big money for a declining, injury-prone edge rusher no longer pressuring quarterbacks on a consistent basis.’   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
