"I've missed way too much for way too long. and I'm done", Harrison wrote in part on Instagram with a montage of photos of his kids and a telling hashtag: #2ndAndFinalRetirement. When people look back at Harrison's career, his time with the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots will be nothing more than footnotes on an otherwise stellar career.

Harrison ended up being used a lot more than many anticipated by New England.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has announced he will retire from the NFL.

In 14 seasons with Pittsburgh, Harrison won two Super Bowls and earned five Pro Bowl nods.

Harrison, who signed with the Pats late in the season and instantly became a starter in the playoffs, announced his retirement on Monday morning.

Harrison registered a team-record 80.5 sacks in 13-plus seasons with the Steelers, making five Pro Bowls, twice being named first-team all-pro and earning National Football League defensive player of the year honors in 2008.
