James Harrison announces retirement after 16 seasons

James Harrison announces retirement after 16 seasons

Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is walking away from the National Football League for a second time. He signed with the New England Patriots in late December after getting released by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

At the end of the season, he entered free agency.

Harrison announced his retirement on Monday, saying in an Instagram post: "I've missed way too much for way too long and I'm done".

He finished off the post with the hashtag #2ndAndFinalRetirement.

Harrison played almost his entire career with the Steelers and the 84.5 sacks he collected while wearing black-and-gold are a franchise record.

He then spent some time with the Baltimore Ravens and the NFL Europe's Rhein Fire before ending up back with the Steelers in 2004.

Harrison was undrafted out of Kent State in 2002.

He was named the 2008 NHL Defensive Player of the Year and was named to five Pro Bowls in his career. Harrison lashed out at commissioner Roger Goodell, calling him "a crook" in a 2011 magazine article.

In 2009, Harrison returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play of the first half to give the Steelers a 17-7 lead on the way to a 27-23 triumph over Arizona. It lasted all of 18 days.

Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is taking a second crack at retirement. However, he had a change of heart and continued to play on for a few more seasons. He had two sacks in his debut with New England in the 2017 regular-season finale and added seven more tackles in the playoffs.
