  • Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger  with outside linebacker James Harrison at an NFL football practice Tuesday

Harrison, who is the Steelers' career leader in sacks, piling up 80½ during his 14 seasons with the Steelers and 82½ during his career, briefly retired in September 2014 following a forgettable 2013 season in Cincinnati but returned when the Steelers ran into injury trouble.

As you can probably imagine, it's been a weird Tuesday for fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers as a result of former outside linebacker James Harrison deciding to sign a one-year contract with the New England Patriots, a team he's openly criticized in the past.

Prior to the Week 7 game this season, Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler said he wanted to feature Harrison in an expanded role because "it's always good to have James Harrison when you're playing Kansas City and let the offensive tackle [Fisher] see him".

Pittsburgh cut Harrison on Saturday, Dec. 23.

The Patriots and Steelers are vying for home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs and are locked in to the top two spots in the conference.
