Harrison follows a history of past great Pittsburgh linebackers that were let go to find other teams when they were further in their careers, Kevin Greene; Greg Lloyd; Jason Gildon to name a few and now Harrison. They have had the fortunate ability to plug in young replacements that fit their scheme & can afford to make these kind of changes.
I would not be surprised if Baltimore brings Harrison back to their team. However, Miami is said to play a hybrid 4-3 3-4 defense, so I suppose you never know if a guy like Harrison can bring some aggressive energy to the defense, but I am doubting this will happen.
Kevin Greene went on to have a great career post Pitt..Lloyd Had a infection and never played again..Porter had a couple very good years post Pitt....And last but not least Mike Vrable...How did that one work out....Thats a history of letting good player walk.
Harrison still has a couple years in the tank.
In todays passing NFL he would play plenty in Miami
Are you nuts? Peezy SUCKED his first year with the Dolphins, while Harrison picked up where Peezy left off. Oh, sure Peezy bounced back, but Harrison proved to be his cheaper, younger, more vicious alternative. The Steelers may have let Peezy walk, but they had his replacement in the wings. And let's not forget Kimo von Oelhoffen transitioning to Brett Keisel, Chris Hope to Ryan Clark, Santonio Holmes to Emmanuel Sanders/Antonio Brown (ESPECIALLY that one), etc.
And frankly, I couldn't trust Mendenhall as far as I can toss him. He's a fumbling machine. In Pittsburgh, to "Mendenhall" is to vomit in your mouth.
