James Harrison believes he has grown since being arrested in 2008, according to Scott Brown of ESPN. Harrison, who recently signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, was arrested for hitting his girlfriend and charged with simple assault and criminal mischief. Both charges were misdemeanors and were eventually dropped.
“It was something that happened, an unfortunate situation, and right or wrong everybody makes mistakes,” Harrison said following his first practice since re-signing with the Steelers on Tuesday. “I learned from it and grew from it and I’m where I’m at now.”
Before the Steelers brought Harrison back into the fold, head coach Mike Tomlin sat down and talked with Harrison on the current state of the league. The NFL has recently been rocked by scandals involving domestic violence, most notably cases including Ray Rice, Greg Hardy and Ray McDonald.

Tony Romo has thrown just one interception since throwing three in Dallas’ season opener against San Francisco. The Cowboys are 3-1 ATS in their last four games as a home underdog.
The total for this Sunday night’s game is set at 53 at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. The OVER is 3-0 in the last three games between these two teams.
New Orleans is like night and day at home and on the road. The Saints have proven time and time again that they can’t be trusted on the road, and considering that Dallas has an offense good enough to shoot out with New Orleans, the Cowboys look like the pick at +3 at home.
