James Harrison Signs With Patriots After Getting Released By Steelers

Former Steelers linebacker James Harrison signed a one-year contract with the Pats today, according to a source. So their visit Tuesday with outside linebacker James Harrison is hardly a surprise and could simply be due diligence. Harrison was shockingly cut by the Steelers last week and cleared waivers. Harrison said, with his selfie clearly taken in the Patriots' locker room.

The Patriots are thin at outside linebacker and defensive end, relying on LBs Elandon Roberts and Marquis Flowers and DEs Trey Flowers, Deatrich Wise and Eric Lee. Harrison had played sparingly this season, getting into only five games and recording only one sack and three tackles.

Farmers Call For Bandh In North Karnataka Over Mahadayi Water Dispute
And now protestors in the northern districts of Karnataka are raising the level of the agitation with this bandh call. They said they will soon be meeting to decide about continuing their protest near the BJP office.

Could lead to potential matchup of Harrison vs. Steelers in postseason.

Now, it looks as if the wheels are in motion for Harrison to find a new home with New England. He is preparing to practice tomorrow and will be with the team for the regular-season finale against the Jets and then the playoffs. Harrison has had some great seasons, and in his career, he has 82.5 sacks and 33 forced fumbles. Of course, that means he's been a huge part of the Patriots-Steelers rivalry and now he will have the chance to change courses and help bring another Super Bowl title to New England. But that's exactly the kind of thinking that has benefitted the New England Patriots so many times before, and probably will again.
