Former Steeler James Harrison retires after 16 seasons

Former Steeler James Harrison retires after 16 seasons

One of the fiercest competitors in the National Football League appears to be calling it a career.

"I've missed way too much for way too long. and I'm done", Harrison wrote in part on Instagram with a montage of photos of his kids and a telling hashtag: #2ndAndFinalRetirement.

Harrison, 39, spent the majority of his career as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. But many fans didn't take too kindly to him going to the Patriots after his release from Pittsburgh.

He also was the 2008 AP Defensive Player of the Year in helping lead the Steelers to a Super Bowl victory. Not to mention, a five-time Pro Bowl entrant and two-time All-Pro.

Harrison had a franchise-record 80.5 sacks in 14 seasons with the Steelers.

The Patriots and Harrison had been in contact earlier this offseason about a possible return, but those talks never materialized into a new contract. He would go on to have one heckuva career, but now it's time for the next step.
