  • Bill Belichick reveals all on the James Harrison signing. Just kidding he said nothing at all

After playing in 587 snaps previous year, Harrison was only at 40 snaps before his release.

James Harrison is delighted to link up with Tom Brady at the New England Patriots, if only in the 39-year-old linebacker's attempts to hold onto his youth.

"Finally a teammate that's older than me". But after visiting with New England on Tuesday, Harrison has signed with the Patriots. According to a report from CBS Sports over the weekend, the Patriots and Baltimore Ravens are both interested in adding the veteran to their mix.

For his career, Harrison has 82.5 sacks and 570 tackles in 15 seasons, 14 of which were spent in Pittsburgh, the other in Cincinnati.

Harrison visited Gillette Stadium on Tuesday after being released by the Steelers on Friday.

While Harrison's role has been reduced dramatically in Pittsburgh, he could still make a splash for the Patriots defense just in time for a Super Bowl run.

The Patriots have been thin at defensive end/outside linebacker for most of the season.

He has one sack and three tackles on the year. If the Patriots can clinch the top spot in the AFC, there's a chance they could face the AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs, the team that stunned them in Week 1.

He can work into the rotation in Week 17 against the New York Jets, use the playoff bye week to acclimate further and then prepare for the eventual playoff opponent.

Both the Steelers and Patriots have earned a playoff berth and a bye-week in the upcoming National Football League playoffs.
