Joe Flacco would surely love to have James Harrison as a teammate.

Hoping to help compensate for the losses of Ray Lewis and Paul Kruger, free agent linebacker James Harrison is reportedly interested in becoming a Baltimore Raven.

Even at 34, the 6-foot, 242 pound Harrison, who the Pittsburgh Steelers signed as an undrafted talent out of Kent State in 2002, is an upgrade over Kruger and the unhinged badass would somewhat lessen the dramatic impact of losing Lewis.

A four-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowler, Harrison, who has amassed 617 tackles, 64 sacks, five interceptions and 29 forced fumbles over 131 games, would be an ideal fit for Baltimore.

After upsetting the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl XLVII, the Ravens remain a squad equipped to thrive on the gridiron.

With an elite quarterback, powerful protection upfront, and standout running back Ray Rice in the backfield, Baltimore is extremely efficient on the offensive side of the ball.

However, the Ravens’ success has long been predicated off defense and Harrison is the man that could lengthen the team’s dominance.

For a reasonable price, Baltimore’s suits should act quickly and relocate James Harrison from the Steel City to Charm City.
