Two-Time Super Bowl Champion Linebacker, Harrison Retires

James Harrison calls it quits again

Former Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots linebacker James Harrison has announced his retirement.

Harrison finished off the 2017 season with New England, helping the Patriots to Super Bowl LII, where they lost 41-33 to the Philadelphia Patriots.

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

He took to Instagram to make the announcement on Monday morning, posting a collage of photos of his children with the caption "I've missed way too much for way too long.and I'm done".

Harrison has previously retired in 2014, but returned to the Steelers by Week 4 of that season.

Ornskov said the board will consider returning the proceeds of the sale back to shareholders through a buyback programme. The process identified multiple potential strategic buyers across the U.S., Europe and Japan, Shire said.

Known for delivering hard hits, Harrison began his National Football League career with Pittsburgh in 2002 and helped the Steelers capture the Super Bowl in 2006 and again in 2009.

This is the second time Harrison has called it quits. He was a Pro Bowler for five straight seasons from 2007-2011, a First-Team All-Pro selection in 2008 and 2010, and the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2008. Not bad for a player who went undrafted after graduating from Kent State and spent the early portion of his career primarily on special teams.

Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is taking a second crack at retirement.

Harrison signed a two-year deal last spring that would have kept him in Pittsburgh through his 40th birthday. Pittsburgh cut him on December 23, 2017, after he had played in only five games and been a health scratch much of the season.
