Steelers linebacker James Harrison congratulated his archrival Ravens for their Super Bowl victory, but he did have an ulterior motive.
This is what Harrison had to say on his Facebook account:
The Steelers have the most Super Bowl titles in NFL history with six, winning in 1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 2005 and 2008. Two teams, the 49ers and Cowboys, have won five Super Bowls. But I'll go out on the limb and say Harrison was rooting against the 49ers, not for the Ravens.
The Ravens should feel fortunate that Harrison was in such a kind mood. Last year, after the Patriots lost in the Super Bowl, Harrison tweeted: "Cheaters never win."
Although Harrison is not a certainty to be on the Steelers in 2013 -- his 2013 salary is $6.57 million -- he might get a chance to "congratulate" the new Super Bowl champions to start the 2013 season if he remains in Pittsburgh. The top candidates to play at the Ravens in the first game of the season are: the Steelers, Bengals, Patriots, Packers, Texans and Vikings.
