Torn between money and loyalty to the team that drafted him, Steelers guard Chris Kemoeatu faced the toughest decision of his young life Friday and chose to remain loyal to Pittsburgh.

Considered the top guard in the unrestricted free agent market, Kemoeatu agreed to a five-year, $20 million contract with the Steelers. Included in the deal is nearly $6 million in guarantees.

The New York Jets were offering Kemoeatu more money, but the fact the Steelers won Super Bowl XLIII and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is a big fan of his, Kemoeatu decided money would not govern his decision.

No idea...but I'm sure glad we got him back. He's not an elite guard by any means but he's a Steelers kind of player and we would have had trouble revamping our entire offensive line if we lost too many of them.

Lost Bryant McFadden to the Cards...2 years, $10 million. Tough loss on our part...I was really hoping we'd re-sign him as he was a solid player for us last season. Looks like we may be in the market to be drafting another CB at some point here soon.

I see Joey Galloway is in town today for a visit. He would replace Nate as the deep threat I assume. What does that say about Limas if they sign him?? Maybe he is brought in for a year to work with Limas as they are kind of the same type of receiver. Big ,fast ( at least Joey was in his day) and deep threat....

Rooney ‘optimistic’ about new deal for LB Harrison
Posted: March 20th, 2009 | NFL.com Staff | Tags: James Harrison, Pittsburgh Steelers

Steelers team president Art Rooney II said he is “optimistic” that the team will reach a long-term deal with LB James Harrison, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Friday.

Harrison, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, came up with a key play in Super Bowl XLIII — a memorable 100-yard interception return for a touchdown right before the half.

Re-signing Harrison, who is in the final year of a deal that is scheduled to pay him $1.2 million, is a top priority for the Steelers, but that doesn’t mean it’s quick and easy, according to the paper.

Bill Parise, Harrison’s agent, said he and the Steelers have talked regularly, but no breakthrough has been made.

“Those things, they do tend to drag when you’re trying to extend somebody,” Rooney II said.
Harrison, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, set a team record with 16 sacks during the regular season. He also collected 101 tackles and seven forced fumbles with one interception.

We are going to have to sign a QB here soon.... Batch or Leftwich would work well here... Personally I would rather have Leftwich... but if they want to move Dixon to a slash type player, I will take both Charlie and Bryon.
GOT 6? WE DO!

Steelers, LB Harrison nearing contract extension
Posted: News | Steve Wyche
Sunday, April 12 2009

James Harrison and the Pittsburgh Steelers are closing in on a contract extension that could be finalized as early as Monday, according to Bill Parise, the agent for the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Parise says all parties involved agreed to get past the Easter holiday before consummating the deal.

The price tag of Harrison’s extension is expected to play into the financial parameters of contract negotiations between the Dallas Cowboys and DeMarcus Ware, who like Harrison is an outside linebacker.

Harrison helped the Steelers win Super Bowl XLIII on Feb. 1 by intercepting a Kurt Warner pass and returning it 100 yards for a touchdown. It was the longest play in Super Bowl history and capped Harrison’s best NFL season, in which he led the league with seven forced fumbles and set a Steelers record with 16 sacks. Harrison also ranked second on the team with 101 tackles.

Harrison is entering the final season of a four-year, $5.5 million contract that he signed in 2006.

Monday, April 13 2009


Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison signed a six-year deal Monday worth $51.7 million with $20 million guaranteed, according to his agent, Bill Parise.

The new contract begins this season and voids the final year of Harrison’s existing contract. Harrison was selected the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2008.

Harrison helped the Steelers win Super Bowl XLIII on Feb. 1 by intercepting a Kurt Warner pass and returning it 100 yards for a touchdown. It was the longest play in Super Bowl history and capped Harrison’s best NFL season, in which he led the league with seven forced fumbles and set a Steelers record with 16 sacks. Harrison also ranked second on the team with 101 tackles.
