“I’ve missed way too much for way too long…and I’m done. Many thanks to my family, coaches, the fans, and everyone who played a role in my football life.”
Harrison, of course, would spend the majority of his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. But many fans didn’t take too kindly to him going to the Patriots after his release from Pittsburgh. That said, you can’t blame a man for wanting to play, right?
But he leaves the NFL with far more than just all that experience. He’s a two-time Super Bowl champion, after all. Not to mention, a five-time Pro Bowl entrant and two-time All-Pro. And in 193 games, Harrison would finish with 84.5 sacks.
Harrison turns 40 on May 4. Something tells us this is the right time to call it quits. He would go on to have one heckuva career, but now it’s time for the next step. Is he ready?
