Former Steelers DE Harrison signs with Patriots

Former Steelers DE Harrison signs with Patriots

New Patriots linebacker James Harrison and Tom Brady have already bonded.

It could set up a postseason match-up between Harrison and the Steelers. 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.

This season with the Steelers, he has played just 40 snaps in five games, only 11 of those snaps have come since week seven. We needed to activate Marcus Gilbert.

"James knows I am going to put the interest of this group above anything else in terms of how we prepare, who we utilize and how we utilize them", head coach Mike Tomlin said in October, per 247Sports' Bryan DeArdo. He has played in just five games and logged three tackles this season, however, as rookie T.J. Watt took over a starting role.

Both the Steelers and Patriots have earned a playoff berth and a bye-week in the upcoming National Football League playoffs.

It appears the Patriots are looking to add to their defense ahead of the final week of the regular season.

Pittsburgh cut Harrison on Saturday, Dec. 23.

A win on Sunday against the Jets will lock up the top seed in the AFC playoffs and home field advantage throughout, while the Steelers need a win and a Pats loss to earn that right. The signing could make for an interesting reunion between Harrison and Pittsburgh should the Patriots and Steelers meet in the AFC championship game.

Only Pittsburgh, with six, owns more Super Bowl wins.
