Ouch: Steelers All-Time Sack Leader James Harrison Signing with the Patriots

If the AFC Championship Game happens to be between the Steelers and Patriots for the second straight season, the black and gold will be looking across the field at an old friend according to reports today.

It was reported earlier on Tuesday that all-time Steelers sack leader James Harrison was visiting the Patriots following his Saturday release by the Steelers, and now Adam Schefter and Field Yates of ESPN are reporting that Harrison is signing with the Steelers biggest rival.

This is a kick to the stomach for many Steelers fans who probably wouldn’t care if Harrison signed with a team like the Eagles or Rams, but to go to the very team that Pittsburgh is most likely going to have to get through to get to the Super Bowl is tough to swallow.

We will see just how much Bill Belichick and the Pats use Harrison, or if he’s simply there to be an informant to the Pats for how the Steelers run certain plays on defense to further help New England should a rematch occur in late January.

  1. No problem Jamesk, we will just have to make you look bad if we get a chance to play again. Coach Bill this is the second time you did this, the first being your tampering with our roster and taking Blunt to beat us because you had no running back. ( The NFL should have investigated that but you esczped again ) )But this time is different, no matter how you sneak around you are losing to the Steelers, IF we both get there. I know we will but will you?
