James Harrison reportedly visits Patriots as he weighs free agency options

James Harrison reportedly visits Patriots as he weighs free agency options

Then it was reported he was visiting with the New England.

The Pats are perilously thin at outside linebacker and defensive end.

Whether or not Harrison ultimately ends up with the Patriots remains to be seen, but the first step toward making that a reality is taking place on Tuesday as the Steelers' all-time sacks leader has some discussions with the organization.

The New England Patriots are "expected to sign" free-agent linebacker James Harrison after the 15-year veteran was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 23, according to ESPN's Field Yates. The Patriots always seem to find these types of players.

The Pittsburgh Steelers waived five-time Pro Bowl linebacker James Harrison on Saturday in a move that surprised many around the NFL.

Harrison has 788 career tackles, 82.5 sacks, eight interceptions and 33 forced fumbles in 15 National Football League seasons.

Now, it looks as if the wheels are in motion for Harrison to find a new home with New England. He had been a member of the Steelers organization for 14 years, since 2002.

The average age on the New England Patriots' 53-man roster spiked Tuesday.

Harrison signing with the Patriots isn't just a fit from a narrative standpoint, though that alone is enough to get me excited about the possibility. He only played 40 snaps this season and had been on the field for one game since Week 8.

Could lead to potential matchup of Harrison vs. Steelers in postseason.
