Report: "Mutual attraction" between Harrison and Steelers

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that the Steelers also have interest in their former linebacker.

A return to Pittsburgh for former linebacker James Harrison may become a reality.

Following up with Harrison stating that "everybody knows" that he would gladly welcome a return to Pittsburgh during an interview on NFL Network Monday, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported today that the Steelers' interest in Harrison is "mutual".

Harrison spent the first 10 years of his career in the Black and Gold before spending last season with the Bengals. Cincinnati released Harrison this off season. Harrison posted 30 tackles, two sacks and an interception during his lone season in Cincinnati.

The 2008 NFL Defensive MVP will be 36 at the start of next season. While he wouldn't be a starter, Harrison would add depth to a linebacker unit that recently parted ways with LaMarr Woodley and Larry Foote.
