James Harrison announces he's joining Patriots


UPDATED: ESPN's Field Yates reports the Patriots are about to sign former Steelers linebacker James Harrison:

And moments later, Harrison himself confirmed the signing on Instagram:

ORIGINAL STORY: Free agent linebacker James Harrison visited the Patriots at Gillette Stadium on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

Harrison, who has spent the entirety of his 14-year career with the Steelers, went unclaimed on waivers but could be an option for the Patriots heading into the playoffs.

Of course, joining the Patriots might give the 39-year-old a chance to go up against his former team if both New England and Pittsburgh advance to the AFC championship game again this year.
