In recent memory, the Pittsburgh Steelers have always danced around the NFL's salary cap limit, asking certain players to re-structure their deals (or take a straight pay cut) in order for them to get under that line. It's a similar situation this offseason, and some believe that the club will let most (if not all) of their impending free agents walk as they attempt to finagle themselves out of the situation. As they do so, they may need to make some cuts to their veteran roster.

One of the players that could be under consideration is OLB James Harrison. In a column this week for ESPN Insider, Khaled Elsayed of Pro Football Focus identified five potential cap casualties around the league, players whose contracted value for 2013 does not match the production they've put forth recently. Here's what Elsayed had to say about Harrison in particular:

Khaled Elsayed

Five Potential Cap Casualties

"There haven't been many outside linebackers like Harrison in recent memory: a dominant pass-rusher who could make plays in the run game and handle himself in coverage. He was the complete package. But injuries have slowed him down, sapping some of the explosiveness that defined him as a player. He's still making plays in the run game, but his pass-rushing productivity rating dropped to 7.7 in 2012 from 13.6 the year before. With a huge cap hit and the Steelers up against it, they need to make the right business decision and see what they really have in Jason Worilds."

Shaun Phillips is 31. I'd rather bring him in than freeney 32. Spencer is 28 but he may want some big bucks. I think Kruger may come cheaper

I'd rather make a run at Spenser.  He's younger and yeah he'll cost more but Colts have some cash to throw around this year.

Please, no Harrison.

He's even admitted that he was never taught how to tackle properly as long as he's been playing.

He's pretty much as dumb as a bag of rocks.

No Harrison.

 

The guy is older and slowing down.

 

Also he creates a lot of problems with the commissioner and will get slapped with a fine or suspension if he looks at a QB wrong. 

 

He just has a dark cloud over his head that no team should take a risk on.

Can't wait for the next post in this line of thinking, when does the sign JaMarcus Russell for Andrew Luck's back up thread scheduled to start?

    • There are a lot of military people who started out being serious gamers. With the technologies the military use it is no joke that those who are good at that type of stuff are wanted. I have a long time friend who's son started out flying military drones and now that he is a civilian he has a job making so much money it's ridiculous. He has his pilot license and works as a trainer in the drone field for a private company.
    • "Cleveland, you're a loser. Now, buy these fabulous Trump steaks banned by the FDA for contamination & emboli. Yum! Yum! Delicious."   Okay, I'll stop here before I get myself into trouble. 
    •   He did such a great job in Indy why would'nt you ..
    • I have always liked Hue Jackson & I want to see him succeed, but ownership will screw this up & tarnish any progress Jackson makes. It's inevitable as we all know.    I thought he did well in Oakland too. I really did. 
    • Wow, this is shocking and really sad.    Cortez Kennedy was a beast. An overlooked player, possibly because the Seattle teams he was on were so god awful. The 1992 Seahawks had one of the worst offenses in NFL history, even to the point of having Mark McGwire's brother at QB. The one decent player they had on offense back in the day was RB Chris Warren who always put up decent numbers.   If any of you played the Tecmo Super Bowl games on SNES, you may know what I'm talking about when I say Kennedy was one of the best pass rushers in those games.    I'm sure old school Seattle fans probably imagine what it would've been like with him on their 2010 era teams with a much better defense.      Happy he made the Hall of Fame but this sure is sad to see him go.
