Harrison initially passed through waivers without a single National Football League team claiming him, but that doesn't necessarily indicate actual interest levels. He visited Foxboro on Tuesday and he apparently won't be leaving without a contract. Harrison spent 14 seasons with the Steelers over his long National Football League career, and won two Super Bowls with the team.
The 39-year-old Harrison has been active in just five of the Steelers' games this year, despite being healthy.
Trying to even imagine Harrison in a Patriots jersey is borderline impossible. Harrison isn't a game-changer, but he can help.
Of course, that minor role wasn't a major surprise given the emergence of pass-rushers T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree at outside linebacker.
The Steelers and Patriots each secured a bye through to the divisional round, though New England can clinch home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs with a win over the Jets in its regular season finale Sunday. If they do meet in the AFC title game, Harrison's chance to get revenge against his former team will be one of many awesome storylines. They chose to demote Harrison and they chose to let him go.
