James Harrison visiting with the Patriots in New England

James Harrison visiting with the Patriots in New England

Former linebacker James Harrison went unclaimed on waivers and is now a free agent, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Harrison visited Gillette Stadium on Tuesday morning. Harrison said, with his selfie clearly taken in the Patriots' locker room. Needing some defensive help before the playoffs, it would make very much sense for Bill Belichick and company to want to add a veteran presence like Harrison.

It looks like the Patriots have a new pass rusher. Both teams have locked up a first-round bye in the playoffs.

Harrison played parts of 14 of his 15 career National Football League seasons with Pittsburgh and is the franchise leader in sacks.

Harrison recorded 80.5 sacks with the Steelers, but saw his role decrease as the Steelers transitioned to more pass-coverage responsibilities for outside linebackers Bud Dupree and rookie T.J. Watt. Harrison has had some great seasons, and in his career, he has 82.5 sacks and 33 forced fumbles. That could make for an interesting reunion between Harrison and Pittsburgh should the Patriots and Steelers meet in the AFC championship game. He did not get into the game in the Week 15 classic between the Pats and Steelers. The Patriots and the Steelers now share the AFC spotlight with 12-3 records, made possible by New England's controversial, last-second win at Heinz Field on December 17. He played 40 defensive snaps in five games.
