Farrior States He Wants to Stay a Steeler for Rest of Carrer


Steelers LB James Farrior is entering his last season of a $16.4 million dollar deal, but stated in today’s Tribune-Review that he wants to wrap up his career as a Steeler.  He told the paper he understands if the final part of his career has to be as a backup.  “They’re always going to have somebody try and replace you,” said Farrior. “That’s always in the back of your mind.”  Farrior led the Steelers with 111 tackles last season, and also added six sacks and six passes defensed.  “I love the team,” Farrior said recently. “I love the organization. I feel like this is a good home for me, and I’d love to stay. But we all know how the business goes. We’ve had a lot of great players come through the system that had to leave. That’s part of the game. That’s what you’ve got to realize.”
