James Harrison Fires Back About Limiting His Snaps at Linebacker in 2015

Pittsburgh Steelers v Cleveland Browns

There’s been a lot of chatter about the return of LB James Harrison in 2015 – and today the vet finally spoke out about it.

After Tuesday’s OTA’s, the 37-year-old former NFL Defensive Player of the Year talked about this role on the team as far as being a mentor to the team’s younger linebackers and his place in the team overall.

He stated that he will show what to do with his actions, and not so much with his mouth.

“I show what I do by going out there and actually doing it,” Harrison said. “I don’t talk to you about it, I do it. So if you just watch what I do, it really shouldn’t be that hard to do the things that’s necessary.”

He also had something to say about the amount of snaps that he will play in 2015 – and let’s just say he’s not very happy being told he’ll only play 25 snaps per game.

    Of course Harrison can play more than 25 snaps a game. That isn’t the point. By limiting his snaps, Butler is hoping to prolong Harrison’s career and to make each snap the best he can give. His intentions are good. But sometimes, when you are dealing with the great ones like Harrison, you can only protect them so much without ruining their competitive instincts and wounding their pride. And I suspect this is all a moot point anyway. No one on the roster has shown an ability to match Harrison, even at 37. He’ll play. A lot.
