Last year was another productive one for Steelers veteran linebacker James Harrison, and from all indications he will be back playing linebacker again for the team in 2016.

Harrison’s agent, Bill Parise, told Jeremy Fowler of ESPN that Harrison is set on coming back and hoping to wrap up his wild NFL career with another NFL title.

“He’s under contract for one more year,” Parise told Fowler. “We plan to honor that.”

Harrison still has one-year remaining on a a two-year extension he signed before the 2015 season. This season he’s set to make $1.25 million in base salary.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said today he also is expecting that Harrison will be back in 2016.

The linebacker in 2015 put up 40 tackles, five sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception. He played in about 50 percent of the defensive snaps, but was still effective for the black and gold, and he should come back for another season the way he played in 2015.

  1. Great! But don’t have Vick back!!!!

  2. James is by no means the answer at outside linebacker . In certain situations he will help , but his days as a regular starter are long gone . Jarvis Jones has to come through this year , no exceptions , If he doesnt , then its time for the Steelers to admit their mistake and move on .
