Poll: Would Ravens Fans Want Ex-Steeler?


Almost immediately after the Pittsburgh Steelers parted ways with outside linebacker James Harrison, speculation started about where the former Defensive Player of the Year would land.

His agent, Bill Parise, told The Baltimore Sun that he thought Baltimore would be a great fit for Harrison.

From a football standpoint, the move could make sense.

Harrison is a pass rushing outside linebacker that has spent his career playing in a 3-4 defense. He's registered 60 sacks over the last six seasons, and Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome has said on numerous occasions that he is always looking to add quality pass rushers to the roster.

The Ravens could also potentially get Harrison at a bargain because he's coming off his worst season since 2006. The 34-year-old linebacker struggled with injuries and notched just six sacks on the year.

While Harrison could fill a need on the defense, it would be a big change to see the lifetime Steeler put on the purple and black. He's best known for tormenting the Ravens, making plays like the strip-sack he had on quarterback Joe Flacco in Pittsburgh's Week 13 victory last year. 

Switching sides in the bitter rivalry would not only be a big change for Harrison, but also for the fans of the two teams. 

So is Harrison in a Ravens uniform something you would want to see?
