NFL Veteran James Harrison Announces He's Retiring


But after a controversial ending, James Harrison is calling it a career in Foxborough, and you can bet no Steelers fans will be attending his retirement party. He signed with the New England Patriots at the end of the 2017 season for their playoff run before announcing his latest retirement. Harrison returned to the Steelers in 2011.

Whether you still look at Harrison as a bigger villain than Le'Veon Bell, you have to acknowledge his time in Pittsburgh.

He played 14 of his 15 National Football League seasons with the Steelers, twice earning first-team All-Pro honours and being named to the Pro Bowl five times in consecutive seasons from 2007-11.

Harrison played almost his entire career with the Steelers, collecting 80.5 of his 84.5 career sacks while wearing black and gold, a franchise record.

With his career now over, Harrison can begin polishing up the speech he'll deliver in Canton, Ohio.

He acknowledged on his Twitter post that he has "missed too much for way too long" and had photos of his kids posted on his Instagram account with the hashtag "HarrisonFamilyValues". This time however, it seems as though Harrison will not be persuaded to suit up again.

Harrison twice left the Steelers.

A year ago, the Steel City was rooting for their aging veteran to pound out one more season and hang up the cleats in the locker room he established himself in. He had 10 tackles, 3.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception that day against Baltimore. The Ravens were reportedly interested in Harrison, but he signed with the Patriots, causing an uproar in Pittsburgh.
