James Harrison Says He Might Retire

James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers might just take his illegal — at least according to the NFL — hits and go home.

The Steelers star linebacker says he might have to quit playing if the NFL is going to crack down on hitting.

“I really truly hope it’s something that can be done,” Harrison told Fox Sports Radio. “But the way that things were being explained to me today and the reasoning for it, I don’t feel I can continue to play and be effective and, like I say, not have to worry about injuring someone else or risking injury to myself.”

Poor baby. I don’t have much sympathy. I understand that sometimes unintentional things happen, but I won’t blame the league for trying to protect its players.
