James Harrison Visiting the New England Patriots Today

After clearing waivers on Monday, ESPN's Field Yates is reporting the former longtime Steelers linebacker is now in Foxboro visiting with the New England Patriots.

Harrison originally signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State in 2002.

The Patriots must make a corresponding roster move to make room for Harrison.

Manchester City Set To Fork Out £60m For Southampton's Van Dijk
De Vrij has played 33 times for the Dutch national team and was part of the squad that finished 3rd in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Spurs welcome Southampton to White Hart Lane this afternoon and get a bumper day of Premier League action underway.

But his role decreased as the Steelers transitioned to more pass-coverage work for outside linebackers and rookie.

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. He's a two-time first-team All-Pro and two-time second-team All-Pro. While a lot of people have visions of Harrison wreaking havoc on the Steelers at the most inopportune time, it's much more likely that New England values him as a knowledge resource other anything he can on the field. Harrison has recorded 788 tackles, 82.5 sacks and eight interceptions in his 14-year career.

Harrison, now in his 15th National Football League season, played almost every year season of his National Football League career with the Steelers, with the lone exception being the 2013 season which he spent with the division rival Cincinnati Bengals. The Patriots are banged up on defense and definitely need help rushing the passer. He did not get into the game in the Week 15 classic between the Pats and Steelers. He played 40 defensive snaps in five games.
