James Harrison announces retirement after 16 seasons

James Harrison is calling it a career.

Harrison made the announcement on social media, saying he's "missed way too much for way too long ... and I'm done".

Harrison, who made a brief retirement in 2014 before rejoining the Steelers weeks later, finished with 793 tackles, including 84.5 quarterback sacks, in 193 National Football League games.

The five-time Pro Bowler, two-time All Pro and 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year announced on Instagram early Monday he is stepping away from the game following a 15-year career that saw him go from undrafted free agent to one of the most feared players in the league.

But after barely featuring with the team last season, Harrison was released and subsequently signed with the New England Patriots to help them during their run to the Super Bowl.

That marked the second Lombardi Trophy of Harrison's career, having also triumphed with the Steelers three years previous against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL.

He then spent some time with the Baltimore Ravens and the NFL Europe's Rhein Fire before ending up back with the Steelers in 2004. Harrison is set to turn 40 this May.

After a one-year stint with the Cincinnati Bengals, Harrison returned to Pittsburgh in August 2014 and announced in September that he would retire as a Steeler.

Harrison's 2017 season ended this past February as a member of the New England Patriots in a Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
