Forget messy divorce: James Harrison remembered as Steeler great

PITTSBURGH -- With James Harrison announcing his second and final retirement Monday, the 39-year-old should be known for his timely playmaking and Super Bowl pedigree with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Harrison's clunky exit out of Pittsburgh in 2017 affected his standing with the team in the short term but won't be an issue years from now. His game will age as well as he did.

He's the franchise's all-time sack leader, an NFL defensive player of the year in 2008 and the owner of one of the best defensive plays in Super Bowl history, a 100-yard interception return to help clinch Super Bowl 43.
