Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

PITTS­BURGH - James Har­ri­son is tak­ing an­other shot at re­tire­ment, and this time it’s likely to stick for the long­time Pitts­burgh Steel­ers line­backer.

The five-time Pro Bowler, two-time All Pro and 2008 NFL De­fen­sive Player of the Year an­nounced on In­sta­gram early Mon­day he is step­ping away from the game fol­low­ing a 15-year ca­reer that saw him go from un­drafted free agent to one of the most feared play­ers in the league.

The 39-year-old spent the 2013 sea­son in Cincin­nati and signed with New Eng­land late last sea­son.

This is the sec­ond time Har­ri­son has called it quits. He re­tired briefly in Septem­ber 2014 only to be lured back to the Steel­ers.
