Former Steelers linebacker James Harrison retires from NFL

Former Steelers linebacker James Harrison retires from NFL

But after a controversial ending, James Harrison is calling it a career in Foxborough, and you can bet no Steelers fans will be attending his retirement party.

Harrison split last season between the Steelers and the New England Patriots.

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

The veteran linebacker announced his retirement Monday morning via social media, posting a photo collage of his two children on Instagram and a caption that included the message, "I've missed way too much for way too long", and "I'm done".

In December, Harrison joined the New England Patriots after being released by the Pittsburgh Steelers. "I don't want him to wait too long". He immediately went to the gym.

Harrison announced in an Instagram post on Monday that he is retiring.

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

Harrison, a five-time Pro Bowler, had said ahead of the Super Bowl that he had hoped to play another season or two, but citing family, made a decision to retire instead.
