James Harrison to meet with Patriots

ESPNAPI_IMG_NO_ALTEXT_Value

This season with the Steelers, he has played just 40 snaps in five games, only 11 of those snaps have come since week seven.

After being cut last week to create roster space, and clearing wavers, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported that Harrison visited the Patriots on Tuesday. But after visiting with New England on Tuesday, Harrison has signed with the Patriots. The team also uses linebackers Kyle Van Noy, Trevor Reilly and Marquis Flowers at the end of the line, depending on the package.

The Patriots have been thin at defensive end/outside linebacker for most of the season. Brady is 40 years old while Harrison is younger by just one year.

Burnley 0 Tottenham 3: Kane hat-trick sends Spurs above Arsenal
Kane now has one chance to break Shearer's record, with Tottenham at home to out-of-form Southampton on Boxing Day. Kane's second in the 69th minute all but wrapped up the points and he completed his treble 11 minutes from time.

In a corresponding move, the Steelers activated offensive starting Marcus Gilbert, who missed the previous four games while serving a suspension for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances. Harrison finished his Steelers stint as the franchise's all-time leader in sacks with 80.5, eighth among active players.

The Patriots and Steelers are both 12-3 and have wrapped up first-round byes. The signing could make for an interesting reunion between Harrison and Pittsburgh should the Patriots and Steelers meet in the AFC championship game.

The New England Patriots have won their fourth Super Bowl in the Brady/Belichick Era by defeating the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl XLIX in Arizona.
