Veteran Linebacker James Harrison Retires After 15 NFL Seasons

Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is walking away from the National Football League for a second time.

"I've missed way too much for way too long...and I'm done".

Harrison, who turns 40 next month, previously retired in 2014 after a one-year stint with the Cincinnatti Bengals.

Having gone undrafted in 2002, he eventually joined the Pittsburgh roster in 2004 where he won the Super Bowl in 2006 and 2009, where he famously scored an 100-yard interception touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons.

Harrison spent 14 seasons with the Steelers and retires as the team's all-time leader in sacks with 80.5.

In a touching Instagram post on Monday morning, the 39-year-old linebacker announced he is hanging the cleats up after 15 seasons so he can spend more time with his family. The Ravens were reportedly interested in Harrison, but he signed with the Patriots, causing an uproar in Pittsburgh.

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.

As the twilight of James Harrison's career arrives, fans can reflect on some of the fantastic hits and plays that he made in a Steelers uniform.
