RAW: Steelers LB James Harrison discusses ‘Deflategate’ ruling

Steelers' James Harrison considering legal action against NFL after ‘Deflategate’ ruling

Tom Brady's win in court last week over the NFL has Harrison, who was fined at the discretion of Commissioner Roger Goodell a number of times, looking into the possibility of trying to recoup some of his money.

“I'm just wondering how far they can go with it with the other guys that he suspended or fined at his discretion," Harrison said. "Hopefully there will be other guys that fight this and be able to fight them."

Harrison said he may take the fight to the NFL.  

"Actually, I'm trying to figure out how to do something like that, to be honest with you,” Harrison said. "Actually, I'm going to talk to the union."

Harrison and the Steelers kick off the NFL season Thursday in New England against the Patriots.
