PITTSBURGH (KDKA.AP) — Steelers linebacker James Harrison is sticking around, saying that “like a fine wine,” he’s “getting better with age.”
Harrison announced on his Instagram page Monday that he plans on playing this fall.
Harrison, who turns 38 on Wednesday, finished with five sacks in 2015 but said after Pittsburgh’s loss to Denver in the playoffs he needed time to figure out if he wanted to come back for a 14th year.
Harrison has spent much of the offseason working out in Arizona and coach Mike Tomlin said over the weekend the team was planning on having Harrison back in the fold.
