The Steelers recently let go of two-time Super Bowl champion and linebacker James Harrison. He went through waivers and was unclaimed despite reports that the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots would be interested in picking him up. It looks like the Patriots are following through and have Harrison on a visit.

Should the Patriots end up signing him for the rest of the season and making a deep playoff run with Harrison, you can bet that Steelers fans won’t be happy. Harrison had given up his starting spot to T.J. Watt and expressed his frustration with that earlier in the year. With the Patriots, he would likely start right away and he could make a huge difference on a defense that has not been one of the better ones in the league this season.

They’ve pretty much done just enough to let the offense win games, but have’t really won a game themselves by shutting down another team. However, they did get a timely interception against the Steelers just a week ago to stop the drive and preserve the win. With Harrison on the field, there could be a lot less need for heroics though.
