Steelers LB James Harrison ready to produce in limited role
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Steelers linebacker James Harrison came out of retirement last year and played surprisingly well, and this year, he'll be part of a young linebacker corps eager to prove itself. Harrison will step into a reduced role, but he's still ready to make an impact, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Harrison had 5 1/2 sacks last season and at 37, he isn't getting younger, so the Steelers are planning to keep him limited to 15-20 plays per game. But don't expect Harrison to ease into retirement. 

"Nobody wants to be in a backup role," Harrison said. "If that's your mentality, then you're not in the right sport. Everybody wants to start, but we all have roles to play. I think I can play more than 25 snaps a game when I'm 50."

Steelers' James Harrison on retirement: 'You can't play forever'
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

With Steelers linebacker James Harrison about to enter his 13th NFL season, Harrison knows his time in the league may be ending soon, reports the team's official website.

"It's a young man's game," he said. "You can't play it forever. You have to be grateful for the time that you get and move on from there."

Harrison briefly retired after the 2013 season before returning to play in 2014. He said he has come to realize that change is a constant in the NFL.

"Each year is a new era because you have a new set of guys," Harrison said. "No defense comes in with the same group of guys year in and year out from every position. I think each year is a new group, new era."

Steelers linebacker James Harrison to see less snaps in 2015
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Steelers veteran linebacker James Harrison is expected to see less snaps in 2015, according to linebackers coach Joey Porter per the Pittsburgh Tribune.

"He knows where he is," Porter said shortly after the Steelers drafted Miami (Fla.) outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo on the final day of the NFL Draft. "I told him already, the James Harrison (of before) is over.

"He's going to play his role, and his role is going to be effective. He knows what we're asking out of him, and he's going to be ready to answer the bell."

Porter said he expects Harrison to play roughly 25 snaps per game next season. Pittsburgh took another outside linebacker in Bud Dupree from Kentucky in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday.

"You can never have enough pass rushers in the way the game is being played now from the outside linebacker position," Porter said. "We just made our outside linebacker tree a little deeper."

Steelers' pick Bud Dupree plans to learn from James Harrison
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Steelers first-round draft pick Bud Dupree told the media that he can be an every-down player for the Steelers' defense. 

"It’s a great defense already," he said, per Steelers.com. "For Coach Tomlin to believe I can help improve it even more is a blessing for me. I like the aggressive style they play and the way they use the linebackers is great." 

Dupree is also excited to share the field with James Harrison. "I can learn a lot from him," he said. "He has been around the game a while, he is a Pro Bowler, he can teach me. I have to make sure my eyes are big and my ears are open."

Steelers' Jarvis Jones, James Harrison in 'open competition' for ROLB job
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert wants to see the starting right outside linebacker earn the job this fall, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

With veteran James Harrison re-signing with the team, he and second-year linebacker Jarvis Jones will be in an "open competition" for the job.

Jones was hampered by injuries in his rookie season, limiting him to just seven games, totaling 18 tackles and two sacks. Harrison signed with Pittsburgh midway through 2014, totaling 45 tackles with 5 1/2 sacks in 11 games.
