Steelers LB Harrison Slams League on 18-Game Schedule and Player Safety

Steelers linebacker James Harrison is not letting up in his criticism of the NFL according to the Associated Press.

Before Wednesday’s practice, Harrison said that the owners’ push for an 18-game regular season and the possibility of a lockout prove the NFL is more interested in maximizing revenue than the health of its players.

“It’s not about player safety,” Harrison said. “It’s about money.”

The league and the players’ union face an early March deadline for trying to negotiate a new labor agreement.

“It’s no doubt to me,” said Harrison, whose Steelers play the Green Bay Packers for the NFL championship Sunday. “I believe they’re going to lock us out.”
