Harrison registered a team-record 80.5 sacks in 13-plus seasons with the Steelers, making five Pro Bowls, twice being named first-team all-pro and earning National Football League defensive player of the year honors in 2008. That lasted a little over two weeks before he signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers in September 2014.

This is the second time Harrison has called it quits.

Harrison helped the Patriots reach the Super Bowl, where they ultimately lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. However, he had a change of heart and continued to play on for a few more seasons.

Earlier this month, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that Harrison meant to play in 2018 and hoped to sign with someone as a free agent after this month's draft, but apparently he's had a change of heart. The Ravens sent him to NFL Europe before eventually releasing him. He had two sacks in his debut with New England in the 2017 regular-season finale and added seven more tackles in the playoffs.
