After visiting with the Arizona Cardinals coaching staff and officials Wednesday afternoon, ex-Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is not expected to sign with the team, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Harrison’s agent, Bill Parise, said the visit was pleasant but the Cardinals have no interest in signing the 36 year old at this point in time.

Last season, the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year played for the Cincinnati Bengals after nine seasons in Pittsburgh. Harrison struggled in his transition to a 4-3 outside linebacker, registering just 30 tackles and two sacks in 15 games.
The Cardinals were one of the first teams this offseason to express interest in signing Harrison, who seems content to wait for the ideal opportunity. While Harrison is far from the player he once was, he still holds some value as a situational pass rusher.
In his 10-year NFL career, Harrison has recorded 66 sacks and 29 forced fumbles
