Earlier today it was reported that the Pittsburgh Steelers have told James Harrison’s agent that they don’t plan on re-signing his client. According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, one of the reasons the Steelers don’t want to bring Harrison back is due to some concerns over his attitude. Another reason Steelers won’t re-sign James Harrison is that they’re concerned his attitude will be bad based on how situation has unfolded. — Jason Cole (@JasonColeYahoo) March 26, 2013 Harrison has a history of telling people how he feels and I wouldn’t be shocked if he gave the Steelers an earful if he was re-signed.

  • Steelers have rarely if ever put up with players with sour attitude players, no matter the talent. So sick of young men blessed by GOD With talent to play at the highest level, be paid ridiculously, whine, cry, nd bitch constantly. Let all the problem athletes get a real job for a year and they would be a little more grateful. Kiss my grits Harrison, harvin, etc.
  • i agree with maxdawg ,everthing is correct,yes he was good ,but has not been that great lately,still could have been a assit for us,,paid to much ,whine ,cry,,no doubt about it,,greed is what it is,, yes get a real job,see what its like ,give me 2 million now ,thats all i need ,would not work rest my life,,
  • AMEN! When we stop treating athletes as someone special,stop giving them special privileges and begin to hold them accountable for their actions on and off the playing field, then maybe we can get what we are paying for. It's time for the people who pay the price to STAND UP and get their money's worth.
  • All athletes in all sports should be paid based on performance lots of athletes demand crazy money GET IT and then under perform.Our FN commish is turning the NFL into flag football. In under 5 years NFL will be a paid to watch option on cable. And most former broke players are seeking damages for the NFL not doing enough to protect them from injury i say you knew what the game was about so deal with it. Oh yea about Harrison if it was his agent that passed on what the Steelers offered he should throw him a beating.
