- REPORT: LB JAMES HARRISON REFUSES TO TAKE PAY CUT, LEAVING THE STEELERS WITH A DIFFICULT DECISION -
 
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is willing to restructure his contract, which is set to pay him $6.57 million this season and $7.57 million in 2014. But he won’t take a pay cut, his agent told Trib Total Media. “Can we help the Steelers by restructuring James’ contract? We’re certainly willing to do that,” agent Bill Parise told the site. “Do we need to take less money? I don’t think so. Personally, I think he’s a bargain.” CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora believes that stance could lead to Harrison’s release  Harrison, who turns 35 in May, missed the first three games of the 2012 season. He finished the year with 70 tackles and six sacks. Parise said the Steelers have made no promises they wouldn’t cut Harrison. “Could it happen? It certainly could. The NFL can cut any player at any time,” Parise said. “Having said that, if James Harrison was released, there would be 31 NFL teams interested in him.” Harrison isn’t the same dominant player after a couple of back surgeries two years ago and the recent knee surgery. Pro Football Focus graded Harrison as the 11th-best 3-4 outside linebacker last season. All of which makes the Harrison decision particularly difficult. (Photo: Vincent Pugliese / US Presswire)
