Steelers release LB James Harrison

Steelers Release James Harrison, Activate Marcus Gilbert

James Harrison has terrorized the AFC North for the better part of the last decade at linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The 39-year-old Harrison is the franchise's all-time leader in sacks, piling up 80.5 during his 14 seasons with the Steelers and 82.5 during his career. He's recently expressed frustration over his role in the defense.

In his five games in 2017, Harrison recorded only three combined tackles with one sack. Harrison then spent one year with the Cincinnati Bengals before returning to Pittsburgh midway through the 2014 season following a brief retirement. Without any role on special teams and virtually nothing on defense even when active, the Steelers made the cold, calculated decision to let him go.

Harrison complained about his lack of playing time earlier this month, saying he would not have re-signed with the Steelers if he had known he wouldn't play.

After spending two years on the Steelers' practice squad, Harrison got his chance to play on the 53-man roster in 2004, playing in all 16 games and finishing with 45 tackles, a sack, a fumble recovery and a defensive touchdown. "It's just the business of the NFL", Parise told ESPN's Josina Anderson.
