Patriots Sign Former Steelers Star James Harrison

If you were to tell an NFL fan that the Steelers would release James Harrison and he would later sign with they New England Patriots, they would not believe you.

But that is exactly what just happened as the Patriots signed the five-time pro bowler to a one-year deal.

Following clearing waivers to becoming a free agent on Monday, Harrison visited the Patriots on Tuesday. The Patriots also released Trevor Riley in order to make space for Harrison on the roster.

This signing comes following Harrison playing the least amount of snaps he ever has in his career. Last year, he played a total of 587 snaps where he only played 40 snaps through 14 games this year.

Harrison also made his frustration with not playing known, which led to his release just a week later.

This new addition to the Patriots makes a Super Bowl favorite even better going forward. While Harrison is old at the age of 39, he still has a lot of good football left in him.

Even more importantly, Harrison brings veteran experience and an unparalleled work ethic to the Patriots.
