Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is willing to redo his deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the form of a restructure, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

What Harrison and his agent Bill Parise will not do is take a pay cut to remain with the Steelers. Parise believes that even at age 35, which Harrison will be when the season starts, there would be a significant market for the linebacker.

Could it happen? It certainly could. The NFL can cut any player at any time,” Parise said. “Having said that, if James Harrison was released, there would be 31 NFL teams interested in him.

“Can we help the Steelers by restructuring James' contract? We're certainly willing to do that. Do we need to take less money? I don't think so. Personally, I think he's a bargain.”
