Patriots linebacker James Harrison

Harrison, who will turn 40 in May, spent 14 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and holds the franchise record with 80.5 career sacks. He then finished his career by playing in the Super Bowl with the New England Patriots.

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.

Harrison says he's ready to spend more time with his friends and family. As a five-time Pro Bowler and the 2008 Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year, he's a lock to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Harrison played almost his entire career with the Steelers, collecting 80.5 of his 84.5 career sacks while wearing black and gold, a franchise record.

This is the second time Harrison has called it quits.

Harrison's physical play at times ran him into trouble with the league office. Harrison lashed out at commissioner Roger Goodell, calling him "a crook" in a 2011 magazine article.

Harrison announced his retirement on Instagram.

After a season with Cincinnati in 2013, Harrison returned to Pittsburgh and stayed until last December, when he was released by the Steelers after appearing in only five games.

At a position where few last into their mid-30s, Harrison continued to thrive. The Ravens were reportedly interested in Harrison, but he signed with the Patriots, causing an uproar in Pittsburgh.
