New England Patriots expected to sign James Harrison

  • Ben Roethlisberger James Harrison

The two oldest non-special teams players in the National Football League are now on the same team, as Harrison has signed with the Patriots, according to a source.

Harrison, who is the Steelers' career leader in sacks, piling up 80½ during his 14 seasons with the Steelers and 82½ during his career, briefly retired in September 2014 following a forgettable 2013 season in Cincinnati but returned when the Steelers ran into injury trouble.

James Harrison is delighted to link up with Tom Brady at the New England Patriots, if only in the 39-year-old linebacker's attempts to hold onto his youth. "A teammate that's older than me!"

A five-time Pro Bowl selection and the 2008 defensive player of the year, Harrison began with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State in 2002. Harrison will also serve as insurance for the Patriots with Kyle Van Noy's health status still in doubt. Many felt that Belchick signing former Jets linebacker Davis Harris fell in line with that, even as Harris has collected dust much of the season on the bench.

Beyond that, Harrison should be another quality addition to the Patriots locker room as they eye a Super Bowl repeat. Those two teams are clearly the class of the AFC this season, with only the Jaguars (10-5) at double digit wins entering Week 17. He did not become a full-time starter until he was 29, but he recorded 54 sacks in his first five seasons in the role. Heck, the Chiefs might not even be the team the Patriots face; they might not even see the Steelers, robbing him of a chance to show his former team for most of the past 15 years that they made a mistake in releasing him.
