Harrison signing with the Patriots isn't just a fit from a narrative standpoint, though that alone is enough to get me excited about the possibility.
Harrison, 39, is in his 15th National Football League season, although he has played only 40 snaps this year. Harrison remains Pittsburgh's all-time leader with 80.5 career sacks.More news: Lorde cancels Tel Aviv concert amid calls to boycott Israel

When James Harrison eventually retires - it has to happen at some point, right? - he'll go down as a Steelers legend.
The average age on the New England Patriots' 53-man roster spiked Tuesday.
That anger will likely only grow amongst Steelers fans today, as it is being reported that Harrison is now visiting with the team that beat Pittsburgh just a few weeks ago to move into first place in the AFC. So, maybe he'll be fresh and bolster the Patriots' pass rush come January.
Harrison has 788 career tackles, 82.5 sacks, eight interceptions and 33 forced fumbles in 15 National Football League seasons. Chances are that if the Pats make it to the AFC title game, they're going to be staring back at Pittsburgh. He played 40 defensive snaps in five games.
