• Patriots agree to deal with former Steelers linebacker James Harrison

    Updated:

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Because beating the Steelers on a last-minute overturned touchdown wasn't enough, the New England Patriots have now agreed to a deal with former Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison.

    Harrison was released by the Steelers this past weekend, and after clearing waivers, visited Foxborough on Tuesday.

    Harrison was signed by the Steelers in 2002 after going undrafted. He also played one season with the Cincinnati Bengals and was briefly signed by the Baltimore Ravens but never played for that team.

    Harrison, who is one of the older players in the league at 39, posted a photo of him with quarterback Tom Brady on Instagram with the caption "Finally... A teammate that’s older than me!😂😂 @tombrady".

    Harrison is a five-time Pro Bowl selection and has twice won the Super Bowl as a member of the Steelers.

    Details about the contract have not been released. Boston 25 News has reached out the members of the Patriots front office for specifics. To make roster space for Harrison, the Pats released LB Trevor Reilly.
