For all the talk about bringing James Harrison onto the Titans roster this offseason, there really hasn't been much public conversation between the team and player. Obviously that is the Titans  M.O. this year, and the results speak for themselves.

Having said that, today James Harrison posted a video on his intagram account acknowledging that he ultimately down to two different NFL teams:

The Titans seem to have an edge in this conversation, especially since the Steelers had all offseason to sign Harrison to a one-year extension. With LeBeau seemingly in the drivers seat here, it seems like if the Titans want Harrison he is theirs for the taking.

If Harrison joins the Titans, it won't be the end of edge rusher additions this offseason, but it definitely moves it from priority number one, to the middle or bottom of the list of needs.
