RT @JasonLaCanfora: Steelers releasing former DPOY James Harrison. Couldnt work out new deal. Need cap space, age and injury a concern.

How big a contract do you think he will command this offseason?

No idea. He was scheduled to make $6.5 million for 2013 and he is turning 35 years old in May.

If he can play ILB it'd free up a draft spot. I don't think he'll command a REAL big contract likely 2-3 million per year at this point in his career.

Supposedly the base salary he turned down was approx. $4.6 Mill (70% of $6.57 Million) plus incentives to get back the 30% reduction.
Per a league source, the Steelers offered a reduction of roughly 30 percent in Harrisonís base salary of $6.57 million, with an opportunity to earn the money back via incentives. (The specific terms of the incentives arenít known.)
