Report: James Harrison To End Three-Week Retirement
Three weeks ago, James Harrison returned to the Pittsburgh Steelers to retire as a member of the squad he spent most of his career on. The 36-year-old linebacker went undrafted out of Kent State in 2002 before going on to win two Super Bowls, make five Pro Bowls, and earn Defensive Player of the Year and NFL MVP accolades in 2008.
Pittsburgh recently lost linebackers Jarvis Jones and Ryan Shazier to injuries, so depth concerns at the position opened a window for Harrison to return home after spending one season with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Harrison hinted at the return on Monday afternoon, posting an Instagram video in which he asks his kids if they want him to play football with the Steelers:
I'll give it one more year! http://t.co/58xFfQaAfr

We'll see how much Harrison has left in the tank, but it's certainly exciting to hear that one of the more prolific defensive players of the last decade is reuniting with the team that gave him his first chance.
