Pittsburgh's 33-year old outside linebacker has spouted off once again. This time not only did he continue his bagging of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, but he also called out two of his Steeler teammates—quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and running back Rashard Mendenhall.
In an interview with Men's Journal, the eight-year pro took numerous shots at Goodell, saying:
Now I know I really don't have much say in the matter, but if I was running the organization I would put Harrison on the trade block as soon as possible. It wouldn't really surprise me if the Rooney's did once the lockout is lifted.
Harrison will only be able to produce so many more solid seasons anyways (he's 33 already), and at this point, despite his bad rep, there are plenty of teams that would be willing to pay the right price. Why not take this opportunity to dispose of Harrison and add youth to this aging defense?
Harrison has continued to dig himself a deeper hole with both the league and the fans, as well as fellow players I'm sure. For a guy who has had just four superb seasons in the league, I really don't think he has earned the right to call out Roethlisberger—especially considering the two are teammates. And why didn't he just say this to Ben's face?
Yet another fine and possible suspension will surely be coming his way once Goodell rids the league of the lockout and agrees to a new deal with the players.
