Steelers LB James Harrison made arguably the biggest play in Super Bowl XLIII to follow up winning the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award. Now comes the contract renegotiation.
Harrison has one year left on his current deal, but his agent, Bill Parise, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he already has held discussions with the team. Parise said he’s hoping for $100 million for his client, though he said that with a laugh.
- “We have had discussions, not negotiated, but we have talked,” Parise said. “I think the Steelers and I are on the same page. We don’t think there will be any issues. My goal and, I think, theirs is the same. We know what we need to do and we’ll both go about the business of trying to get it done.”
- Parise believes a deal can be wrapped up fairly quickly.
- “I’m not worried about the Steelers at all. Their history shows they do the right thing at the right time.”
