Veteran Linebacker James Harrison Retires After 15 NFL Seasons

James Harrison announced his retirement on Instagram Monday morning ending his 15-year career in which he spent most of his time with the Steelers

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. Many thanks to my family, coaches, the fans, and everyone who played a role in my football life", Harrison wrote on Instagram.

Whether you still look at Harrison as a bigger villain than Le'Veon Bell, you have to acknowledge his time in Pittsburgh. That lasted a little over two weeks before he signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers in September 2014.

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

Ben Roethlisberger thought his former teammate defied the aging curve. This time however, it seems as though Harrison will not be persuaded to suit up again.

Harrison quickly signed with the New England Patriots.

Harrison is a five-time Pro Bowler, a two-time member of the All-Pro team, and the NFL's 2008 Defensive Player of the Year, but he is also well known for his efforts to keep his body in top form, including his intense, often unorthodox workout routines. Harrison responded by saying he didn't want to merely collect a "participation trophy" and said "I didn't sign up to sit on the bench and be a cheerleader". Veteran experience only counts for so much, and Harrison wasn't about to take a back seat in 2018, based on his comments to Tafoya.

He joined the Patriots three days later, going on to reach Super Bowl LII, but lost 41-33 to the Philadelphia Eagles.
