Steelers OLB James Harrison Undecided About Playing Another Year

Steelers veteran OLB James Harrison said he’s undecided about whether he’ll continue his playing career in 2016.

I’m not ready to make any type of decision,” Harrison said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “If you were to ask me something like that right after a loss, nobody wants to go out with a loss. It’s going to be an immediate, ‘Yeah, I’m coming back,’ not taking into account everything else. Right now, I’m not ready to make that decision.”

Harrison, 37, signed a two-year, $2.75 million contract that included a $500,000 signing bonus with the Steelers back in March of last year. He stands to make a base salary of $1.25 million for the 2016 season.

In 2015, Harrison appeared in 15 games and recorded 40 tackles, five sacks, an interception, two forced fumbles and four pass defenses for the Steelers. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 8 outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense out of 53 qualifying players.
