James Harrison recently stirred the pot when he said that he received an envelope from Steelers coach Mike Tomlin to supposedly cover a fine that he had received from the NFL back in 2010. Harrison, the Steelers’ all-time career leader in sacks, had been fined $75,000 for a hit on former Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi. On Thursday evening, Steelers president Art Rooney II responded to Harrison’s claim.
“I am very certain nothing like this ever happened,” Rooney said, via Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I have no idea why James would make a comment like this but there is simply no basis for believing anything like this.”
