Harrison uncertain about his future

Veteran linebacker James Harrison may play his final game, at least in a Steelers uniform, Sunday against the Browns.

Harrison was non-committal about his return next year when he spoke to the media on Friday.

“I’ll get things together as far as what I’m doing for next year (after Sunday’s game),” Harrison said.

Harrison, who will be 35 before the start of next year, may not want to play after laboring through a knee injury all season. But the Steelers may not want him back either, especially what kind of money he will make next year.

Harrison will count approximately $10 million against the Steelers already tight salary cap. Releasing him would save the organization about half that.

And with the improved play of former second-round pick Jason Worilds this year in his limited chances could make the move a little easier to digest from an on-the-field standpoint.

The Steelers could also asked Harrison to take a pay cut.

It is still way too early to determine what direction either parties go, but Harrison playing in his final game for the Steelers on Sunday is a definite possibility.
