Former Steelers DE Harrison signs with Patriots

The Patriots have been known to sign veteran players who find themselves on the open market, and they've done so again with Harrison.

The 39-year-old and Brady, 40, have seven Super Bowl titles and nearly 500 games under their combined belts. On his Instagram account, Harrison confirmed the signing by posting a photo with #Tom Brady with the caption: "Finally".

Harrison joins the Patriots as the oldest defensive player in the National Football League at the age of 39. Harrison also came up big in the Steelers' past two playoff runs with multiple sacks.

The Patriots are in a position to benefit from help at the line-backing level with Kyle Van Noy dealing injury and Dont'a Hightower sidelined for the season.

He was also quoted to have said immigrants from Haiti "all have AIDS", while describing Afghanistan as a "haven of terrorists". Mr Trump has tried to crack down on immigration into the U.S. , citing terrorism fears, but has been stymied by the courts.

The Steelers released the 39-year-old linebacker on Saturday to provide room for the return of right tackle Marcus Gilbert from suspension. He managed one sack and three tackles while playing a total of 40 defensive snaps.

A win would give the Patriots the #1 overall seed in the AFC. Heck, the Chiefs might not even be the team the Patriots face; they might not even see the Steelers, robbing him of a chance to show his former team for most of the past 15 years that they made a mistake in releasing him. Harrison finished his Steelers stint as the franchise's all-time leader in sacks with 80.5, eighth among active players.

The Patriots and Steelers are now vying for the top seed in the AFC, while the Ravens now sit in one of the AFC's Wild Card spot heading into Week 17.
