    It appears James Harrison has been released by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    The outside linebacker tweeted “It’s been a great run but all good things must come to a end. Thank you Steelers Nation I will miss you all!â€￾ on Saturday morning. Harrison and the Steelers were having trouble agreeing to a pay cut, according to USA Today.

    Adam Schefter of ESPN.com confirmed the news that Harrison is out in Pittsburgh. The Steelers cleared $5.1 million in cap space by making the move, according to multiple reports.

    I've always said he's a clean, hard-nosed player. Maybe the Browns should take a look.

    We really needed his presence on defense next season, Woodley depended on it. Worilds isn't worth a damn, and this makes our need for 1st round OLB even more pressing.

    Worilds blows and he's even worse trying to play Harrision's side. That LB-corp is gonna be hurting next season.

    Word is the Browns are talking to Keenan Lewis' representatives about him landing in Cleveland.

    Just a shame that teams and the players associated with them can't stay together any more. Harrison will always be a Steeler in most people's minds.
