James Harrison back where it all started
James Harrison officially retired as a Pittsburgh Steeler on Friday afternoon. He held a press conference at Steelers facilities and talked about what it meant to him to be able to close the book on his NFL career in the same place where it first opened.
"“To get the opportunity to come back and officially end it as a Steeler feels good. It’s where I started, got my break and had the majority of my success. It’s a good feeling. For them to give me the opportunity and want me to come back, I am thankful. The Steelers organization has been very good to me. I am thankful for everything the Rooneys and the organization has done for me. I am thankful for the fans. I will tell you that right now, there is no group that is more loyal and knowledgeable than Steelers Nation. Right now I am thankful to have this opportunity.” – James Harrison"
He also spent a little time in the weight room before the presser, for old time’s sake.
Geez, my arms are sore from just watching that.
