Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has announced he will retire from the NFL.

Harrison played just five games for the Steelers during the 2017 season and was released by the franchise in December. Harrison returned to the Steelers in 2011. He indicated that spending more time with his family played the biggest role in his decision.

He played 14 of his 15 National Football League seasons with the Steelers, twice earning first-team All-Pro honours and being named to the Pro Bowl five times in consecutive seasons from 2007-11.

He played 90 percent of the team's defensive snaps in Super Bowl LII and was arguably their most effective player on the front seven.

"I've missed way too much for way too long", Harrison wrote Monday morning, in a post featuring a collage of his children. He started his career with the Steelers in 2002 after going undrafted out of Kent State.

And what did Harrison do with his newly found free time? It lasted all of 18 days.

Harrison announced his retirement on Instagram.

Harrison, who turns 40 next month, previously retired in 2014 after a one-year stint with the Cincinnatti Bengals.

At a position where few last into their mid-30s, Harrison continued to thrive. The Patriots quickly scooped him up.

The Patriots and Harrison had been in contact earlier this offseason about a possible return, but those talks never materialized into a new contract.
