Harrison announced on Aug. 30 that he was retiring from football, but it looks like he may end up giving it a go for an 11th professional season.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday that Harrison is scheduled to meet with the Steelers Tuesday. Assuming the meeting goes well, he could sign with the team.
The Steelers have a need at linebacker after placing 2013 first-round pick Jarvis Jones on the injured reserve-designated for return list. Jones left Sunday night’s game with a wrist injury and needs surgery. He’ll have to miss at least eight weeks, opening things up for Harrison.
Harrison signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent and played with them from 2004-2012. He has 66 career sacks, 25 forced fumbles and he is a five-time Pro Bowler. Harrison spent last season with the Cincinnati Bengals.
