01:16 PM ET 03.26 | The Pittsburgh Steelers have informed outside linebacker James Harrison that he is not included in their future plans, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Harrison's agent, Bill Parise, said that Harrison has "a couple things going on," but as of this past weekend, the Steelers are not included. As noted by Bouchette, this is likely a decision that the Steelers made some time ago, when the team and Harrison couldn't get together on a proper pay cut for the 2013 season, leading to Harrison's release.

You don't want to bring back a player that refused to deal and was cut, because he probably won't be dedicated. May play with a sense of resentment of having to come back.

Harrison will end up in the bargain basement bin along with Tim Tebow.

His agent is always claiming there is interest in Harrision but no team as of yet has even brought him in for an interview or physical.

His agent vastly overestimated the market for Harrision. Hindsight is always 20/20, but he should've taken the 30% cut the Steelers offered and retired a Steeler this year or next.

Except... the new regime is cleaning house. Time to find another team that fits the 'mold'.

It's amazing that there's been no real interest. Agree on his agents miscalculations - seems to be a lot of that going around this year.
