James Harrison: Former Steelers LB Announces Retirement

Steelers fan favorite, linebacker James Harrison, is taking another shot at retirement.

Harrison will be most commonly remembered for his exploits as part of the Pittsburgh Steelers, even though he ended his career with the New England Patriots.

Earlier this month, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that Harrison meant to play in 2018 and hoped to sign with someone as a free agent after this month's draft, but apparently he's had a change of heart.

Whether you still look at Harrison as a bigger villain than Le'Veon Bell, you have to acknowledge his time in Pittsburgh. The five-time Pro Bowler and 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year announced on Instagram he is stepping away from the game following a 15-year career.

He played 90 percent of the team's defensive snaps in Super Bowl LII and was arguably their most effective player on the front seven.

Harrison made the announcement on social media, saying he's "missed way too much for way too long ... and I'm done".

Father Time appeared to finally get the better of Harrison in 2017, though. He signed a deal with Cincinnati in the spring of 2013 but played only sparingly, leading him to retire in the fall of 2014.

At a position where few last into their mid-30s, Harrison continued to thrive. The Ravens sent him to NFL Europe before eventually releasing him. He signed with the New England Patriots last offseason. He had 10 tackles, 3.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception that day against Baltimore.
