Harrison has had surgeries on his knee and back over the last two years. He's missed eight games total and has 15 sacks over that span. Still, he makes the Steelers' roster better.
Parise is ignoring Lawrence Timmons, but he raises a fair point. LaMarr Woodley disappeared last year. The young backups on the team haven't emerged. The Steelers are better off with Harrison, but they can't pay on past production. His best days are behind him, and the team seems very unlikely to pay him his current salary. A divorce looks inevitable.
