Two years ago, Steelers linebacker James Harrison retired. This year he may do it again, for good.
Although Harrison came out of retirement in 2014 and has played the last two seasons for the Steelers, he now says he’s weighing his options and may retire permanently this year.
“I’m not ready to make any type of decision,” Harrison said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “If you were to ask me something like that right after a loss, nobody wants to go out with a loss. It’s going to be an immediate, ‘Yeah, I’m coming back,’ not taking into account everything else. Right now, I’m not ready to make that decision.”
Harrison played well last season, recording five sacks, four passes defensed, two forced fumbles and an interception. Although he’ll turn 38 in May, he still appears to have the physical ability to help the Steelers. He just has to decide if he wants to keep going, or call it a career.
