No decision on fifth-year option for Steelers RB Najee Harris

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a pair of players coming up on a very important deadline. Both quarterback Justin Fields and running back Najee Harris both have a May 2 deadline to see if the Steelers will exercise the fifth-year option on either player.

Head coach Mike Tomlin talked about the Harris contract situation when he spoke to the media at the NFL Annual Meeting in Orlando and he said the team is still sorting out the particulars of whether or not to give Harris the fifth year.

Harris has been the model of consistency during his three seasons. Harris has topped 1,000 rushing yards in each of his first three years and no matter how the rest of the team has played, he gave 100 percent on every single play and has established himself as a leader on the offense.
