Former Pittsburgh Steeler James Harrison announces retirement

Former Pittsburgh Steeler James Harrison announces retirement”

Don't expect James Harrison at New England Patriots training camp this summer.

Harrison, who will turn 40 in May, spent 14 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and holds the franchise record with 80.5 career sacks.

Harrison made the announcement on social media, saying he's "missed way too much for way too long ... and I'm done". "I'm done. Many thanks to my family, coaches, the fans, and everyone who played a role in my football life".

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. There was some speculation the Patriots would sign him to another one-year contract in 2018, but it appears the 39-year-old is done for good.

Harrison, a five-time Pro Bowler, had said ahead of the Super Bowl that he had hoped to play another season or two, but citing family, chose to retire instead.
