NFL Injury Report:
James Harrison played hard-fought games against the
Baltimore Ravens at least twice per year when he was a member of the Pittsburgh
Steelers. Cut by his former club, Harrison’s agent says he would have no issue
playing in Baltimore, telling reporters, including Aaron Wilson of The
Baltimore Sun, that the former Defensive Player of the Year would be interested
in playing for the Ravens.
"Baltimore would be a great fit for James," agent
Bill Parise said. "They're a contender and a class organization, so James
would definitely be interested. I would think they would have a need with the
market for Kruger."
The Ravens are set to lose Ray Lewis to retirement, and they
have a pair of linebackers hitting the free agent market in Paul Kruger and
Dannell Ellerbe. For this reason, Baltimore figures to be on the hunt for a
linebacker or two this offseason.
At this point, it’s unclear if the Ravens have mutual
interest in Harrison, who is likely to be pursued by several teams after hitting
free agency. The veteran turns 35 before the start of the 2013 season and
recorded six sacks last season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were forced to cut James Harrison yesterday. Just like last off-season and many before it the Steelers had to make a tough decision in terms of creating cap space.

James Harrison did some insane things as part of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The linebacker became the league’s most wanted villain as the face of the Steel City defense.
For all of the crushing hits ( what’s up Colt McCoy?) and the costly fines, Harrison was always about making the big play at the right time while in Pittsburgh.
