  • Former Steelers LB James Harrison signs with Patriots

ESPN is reporting that former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is expected to sign with the New England Patriots after working out for the team on Tuesday, according to NBC Boston.

When James Harrison was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday to make room for suspended right tackle Marcus Gilbert, fans in the Steel City were up in arms.

Beyond that, Harrison should be another quality addition to the Patriots locker room as they eye a Super Bowl repeat.

Harrison, 39, recorded one sack in five games this season but saw his playing time significantly reduced as the Steelers turned to rookie linebacker T.J. Watt and third-year linebacker Bud Dupree.

The Patriots are in a position to benefit from help at the line-backing level with Kyle Van Noy dealing injury and Dont'a Hightower sidelined for the season.

The Patriots and Steelers are both 12-3 and have wrapped up first-round byes.

Harrison visited Gillette Stadium on Tuesday after being released by the Steelers on Friday.

With a week 17 win over the New York Jets, New England will secure the #1 seed in the conference.

The Steelers and Patriots could potentially meet in the AFC Championship Game, which would set up a matchup between Harrison and his former team.

Harrison's 100-yard return of a Kurt Warner interception in Super Bowl XLII was one of the defining moments of Pittsburgh's win over the Arizona Cardinals and remains one of the most iconic moments in the game's history.

Pittsburgh's all time sack leader, Harrison did not do much for the Steelers this season and played just 40 defensive snaps this season.
