Shortly after James Harrison's Men's Journal interview went public yesterday, the responses from the players he called out in it started coming from everywhere. Rashard Mendenhall took to his Twitter account. Ben Roethlisberger talked to ESPN's Meril Hoge. And Clay Matthews spoke with Erin Andrews at the ESPYs. But the craziest response yet came from NFL super-agent Drew Rosenhaus, who defended his client Brian Cushing ("Juiced out of his mind," according to Harrison in the Men's Journal piece) by saying that Harrison should be suspended by the league as soon as the NFL lockout is over.
"I thought [Harrison's] comments were way out of line," he told radio station WQAM in Miami. "He doesn't know the first thing about Brian Cushing or Brian Cushing's situation. And to me, that's an awful thing to doâ€”to talk about people that you don't know and that you don't know the first thing about them or their situation. And I think that the league should discipline players who just run their mouths and insult other people and take shots at other people, really in a careless fashion and in a way that is uneducated."
Believe us: We're sure Roger Goodell would love nothing more than to exile Harrison from the NFL suspend Harrison for a few games. But it ain't gonna happen. Sorry, Drew. [via Way Off Base]
