One of the biggest surprises in terms of big-name veterans being released recently was former Defensive Player of the Year James Harrison being let go by the Pittsburgh Steelers. With Harrison officially a free agent, the veteran has shown interest in signing with the longtime archrival Baltimore Ravens according to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Suns as of March 10:
Over the past few years, Harrison has battled injuries and undergone surgeries keeping him off the field. Harrison has missed eight games over the past two seasons and remains a question mark for interested teams heading into free agency.
Harrison’s interest in signing with the Ravens isn’t all that surprising. With superstar linebacker Ray Lewis calling it a career after winning a second Super Bowl title last season, Harrison would be the ideal replacement in Baltimore.
It remains to be seen the level of interest in Harrison’s services around the league, but it’d be safe to say that signing with Baltimore may become a viable option for the veteran linebacker.
