James Harrison calls time on his National Football League career

Steelers fan favorite, linebacker James Harrison, is taking another shot at retirement.

At the end of the season, he entered free agency.

"I've missed way too much for way too long", Harrison wrote.

He finished off the post with the hashtag #2ndAndFinalRetirement.

He was named the 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and was a five-time Pro Bowl selection in a career that saw him collect 793 tackes, 84.5 sacks, 34 forced fumbles, eight fumble recoveries and eight interceptions.

In 2009, Harrison returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play of the first half to give the Steelers a 17-7 lead on the way to a 27-23 triumph over Arizona.

Now that his National Football League career is seemingly over for good, it will be interesting to see if Harrison is ultimately able to rebuild a relationship with the Steelers organization. This time however, it seems as though Harrison will not be persuaded to suit up again.

That marked the second Lombardi Trophy of Harrison's career, having also triumphed with the Steelers three years previous against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL. He retired briefly in September 2014 only to be lured back to the Steelers. Not bad for a player who went undrafted after graduating from Kent State and spent the early portion of his career primarily on special teams.

Harrison played just five games for the Steelers during the 2017 season and was released by the franchise in December.
