He's regarded around these parts as a traitor.

The Steelers cut him, he didn't leave the Steelers. I was shocked, as were a lot of people. And he went to another Super Bowl, so good for him.
I'd like to see him pick up a one-day contract so that he can retire a Steeler.

It was both. He requested to be cut.

The important question:
How much is the NFL going to fine him for this?

Because he wasn't being given playing time.

His girlfriend better hide now that the piece of woman-beating trash has free time.

/hate him for his actions, not the laundry he wore

For what it's worth, he was the Patriots best contain man last year and was a disruptive pass rusher.
 I don't know if that speaks more to his sustained high level of ability or the Pats' lack of roster planning / execution last year.  I'm happy he'll be off the roster but Adrian Clayborn needs to fill a monster void.  I'm guessing one of the four first/second rounders will be used here.

John Tyler reportedly ready to step in to take over his duties.

Uh, he asked to be cut and then turn into a locker room cancer until the Steelers obliged.  His teammates were frustrated with his bullshiat and he farked his own legacy with his selfishness.  This has been discussed by numerous players on the team.  Bud Dupree was one of the most candid, talking about the situation before he decided to completely destroy his Steeler legacy by signing with the Pats for a bag of magic beans.

AdamK: *Patriots Legend James Harrison


Funnied - you jest but without Harrison, Jacksonville faces Philadelphia in the Super Bowl with a capable defense and then ... who knows what happens?  Maybe a low scoring turnover filled game.  Then neither McDaniels nor Reich are offered the Indy job, and Nick Foles is being cursed as a bad backup and cut.  Darryl Worley's frustration with the Super Bowl loss motivates him to behave and he stays out of jail.
Jacksonville's victory pumps money into their local economy and encourages small business growth and better employment, and Donald Trump takes the credit for it.

But no.  Patriot legend James Harrison sends New England to a Super Bowl and allows a Philly victory, causing fans from Philadelphia to be forever known as people who will literally eat horse shiat.

James Harrison did that.

that fabulous Steeler legacy of beating up his girlfriend and having Dan Rooney say it was OK

Not only that, but joined the Patriots.  The only thing that would have been worse for Steelers fans would have been if he joined the Ravens.

Well he didn't get to play and wanted to so i dont blame him one iota.  However there were also reports he acted like a total douche to get them to release him.

So i'd say it depends on what happened first to make a proper determination.

At least he helped the Steelers win their Super Bowls. He is still trying to catch his breath after this pass....

James Harrison intercepted Kurt Warner for 100 yards

The king of the non football play big hit, he took more cheap shots than a mill town during happy hour. They didn't fine him all those times for nothing. He'll probably end up in the hall of fame anyway; his 100 yard return in the Superbowl against the Cardinals is arguably the most exciting play in Superbowl history.

Now he's a cheap shot specialist without an outlet for his viciousness. I give him two years before he ends up in jail for some excessively violent action.

It's the longest play in SB history, no denying that. Don't care how you feel about any player personally, facts is facts.

Hopefully any inevitable violence this creep commits is only to himself and not to others.

Pittsburgh let him go because they were not going to play him. No hard feelings.

He wasn't hired for his pleasant disposition.  Still could have cleaned up his act before going to da Bungles.

The Steelers almost choked the game away! It took another piece of human garbage to actually win that Super Bowl.

I honestly don't give a fark who did it or when it happened or who they played for or what happened afterwards. What I was up in arms about is the very idea that a 100 yard interception return for TD with no time left on the clock at half time would  be judged by anyone as one NOT of the most exciting plays in super bowl history. I don't care if it was by Charlie Manson playing for the new jersey generals.

You saw the NFC championship game, yes?

Minnesota also appeared with a quality defense and recently refurbished QB.

ESPN falls all over themselves to mention he is a former Patriot but somehow leave out he was also a former Bengal.
