James Harrison Announces His Retirement

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Dallas Cowboys

One of the most feared hitters and pass rushers of the past decade has announced his retirment.

After working out for the Arizona Cardinals, former Steelers great James Harrison has decided to retire, and spend more time with his family.

Harrison Made the announcement on his Facebook page.

I have made the difficult decision to retire as of today,” he wrote. “My love for my family and the need to be there for them outweighs my desire to play the game. I have missed too many experiences with them because I devoted SO much time to my career. My love for the game isn’t strong enough to make up for missing one more birthday or first day of school. I am retiring as a man who is truly grateful for all of his blessings.”
