(Edit: Not even making this up, Parise said the same thing to the Saints via the New Orleans Times Picayune. Perhaps he read this article...or had already came up with the idea. When we hear Parise tell Green Bay media, we'll know he read our 5 Destinations for James Harrison article.)
Memo to James Harrison's agent: just send a general press release to any publication covering the NFL. That way, the media won't have to run "Harrison would love to play for the Browns" followed by "Harrison is interested in playing for the Ravens."
I'll even write it for you:
ATTN: NFL MEDIA
FR: Bill Parise, Player Representative, James Harrison
RE: Love to Play For You
Hello, my client, James Harrison, a.k.a. Deebo, f.k.a. Silverback, would love to play for the team you cover. Consider this an on-the-record statement coming directly from me, Bill Parise.
If you do not wish to use a direct quote, you may use, "Bill Parise, agent for James Harrison, said he would love to play for (insert team name)."
Please contact me if you have any other questions.
It really would save us a lot of time. You know as well as we all do the Ravens are not going to sign James Harrison, and if they could afford to pay him more than the Steelers offered, they would keep several of the other players they already have.
