James Harrison Is Worth Every Bit Of The Money

Scotty KaneContributor IApril 15, 2009

After a season of 101 tackles, 16 sacks, 7 forced fumbles, 1 interception, and one of the best plays in Super Bowl history, James Harrison has been rewarded with a new six-year deal worth $51 million .

 I must say, that he is worth every penny. Harrison is a great football player and he went through the contract negotiations very professionally. He didn't bicker or complain about it. He waited patiently and was rewarded.

Harrison was unknown, coming out of Kent State.  He had to go through a lot to be where he's at today. He's been cut numerous times, but that didn't stop him from reaching his goal of being an NFL player. I just don't know if he had all this success he's had, in mind.

No, he is not a tall linebacker, but he is very stocky, and has plenty of strength to compete with the best offensive linemen. He's a hard working player, not to say every NFL player isn't of course, but this guy plays every down like it's his last and I can respect that. From being undrafted, to cut several times, to being on special teams, and now starting for the Super Bowl champs. James Harrison is certainly on his way to superstardom in the NFL.
