Could James Harrison be returning to Pittsburgh?


PITTSBURGH - Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker and current free agent James Harrison indicated Monday that he would like a chance to return to the Black and Gold.

While appearing on "NFL Total Access," Harrison was asked where he wanted to play next.

Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor, who was also involved in the segment, said, “Pittsburgh!” and Harrison replied, “Everybody knows that.”

Taylor then said, “Hint, hint,” and Harrison gave an uncharacteristic smile.

Harrison, who was a five-time Pro Bowler with the Steelers and won two Super Bowls, was cut after just one season in Cincinnati -- giving him the opportunity to sign with any team.

“We'll see if something happens. If nothing does, so be it. I've had a great career, two rings, and a bunch of relationships with former teammates that are still good friends,” Harrison said of Pittsburgh.

During the interview, Harrison also said he doesn’t plan on retiring. He said he’s going to “go until the wheels fall off.”
