The Steelers have not yet asked linebacker James Harrison to restructure the final two years of his contract or take a pay cut for 2013, Harrison's agent, Bill Parise, said according to Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review..
With the Steelers about $14 million over the projected $121 million salary cap, there has been speculation they might ask the 35-year-old Harrison to substantially reduce his pay. He is due to make $6.57 million in 2013 and $7.575 million in 2014.
But Parise said Thursday that while Harrison “would (be willing) to help with that,” he and the Steelers have held no such talks.
Until the Steelers begin sorting out their various offseason issues, Parise said he doesn't expect to hear from general manager Kevin Colbert or director of football and business administration Omar Khan. Parise called his relationship with the two “wonderful” and “great.”
“There is nothing going on,” Parise said. “(If there's anything) it will be down the road.”
