While it’s a big unknown if there will be a punishment for what James Harrison said about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, today the Steelers LB took a step to try and mend fences with what was written in Men’s Journal
“The interview that I did and the comments that I made about Roger Goodell were inappropriate, at the least,” Harrison said today at Steelers camp. “They were way out of line, and I was speaking out of anger and frustration at the time. Any comments that I made that offended anyone, I apologize.”
Harrison said he hasn’t spoken to the NFL or to Goodell about his statements, but has talked with teammates, coach Mike Tomlin and Steelers president Art Rooney II about what was said.
When it comes to ripping QB Ben Roethlisberger and RB Rashard Mendenhall, the Pro Bowl LB said the people in his locker room know what kind of person he is and weren’t bothered by what he said.
“That’s all behind us,” he said Friday. “Those comments [toward teammates] were taken out of context with a long conversation. It’s not anything I haven’t talked to those guys about or my teammates about.”
