James Harrison, Arizona Cardinals not expected to reach deal

Free agent linebacker James Harrison is still looking for a place to play football in 2014, and it appeared that he was close to finding a suitor.

Harrison visited the Pittsburgh Steelers retirement home, also known as Arizona Cardinals facilities, but he walked away without a deal and it is now unlikely that he will be signing with the team.

Couldn’t make the numbers work,” Harrison’s agent Bill Parise said, according to the Arizona Republic.

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians is familiar with Harrison from their time together with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he must not be confident that Harrison is still able to contribute at a high level if the team was unwilling to meet Harrison’s request.

Last season, Harrison played with the Cincinnati Bengals and got the start in ten games.
