James Harrison Signs With Patriots After Getting Released By Steelers

James Harrison Signs With Patriots After Getting Released By Steelers

The longtime Pittsburgh linebacker was released last week so the team could make room for offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert, who returned from a four-game suspension.

Harrison signed a two-year deal with the Steelers prior to the 2017 season, but he didn't see the field often. But while Harrison was not claimed by any team during the waiver process, he wasn't out of the league for long.

The Patriots and Steelers played in one of the best games of the National Football League regular season back in Week 15, with the Pats emerging victorious under some dubious circumstances to swipe the top spot in the AFC.

The New England Patriots bring a lot of free agents to town for visits and workouts, as part of keeping emergency lists updated. The Steelers defensive scheme changed some this season, but Harrison could also have very little left in the tank. Harrison would provide the Patriots with some insurance there if injuries continue to pop up. He's an information resource that could help make the difference when it came to studying game tape. They chose to demote Harrison and they chose to let him go. He did not get into the game in the Week 15 classic between the Pats and Steelers. Surely they had to know the Patriots would be interested.

The Patriots have made a habit of looking to veterans to fill out holes in their roster heading into the final weeks of the season. Even still, his odds of winning a Super Bowl are looking better and better with each passing day.
