James Harrison has carved out quite an NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he signed with the New England Patriots on Tuesday.
When it comes time for the NFL Playoffs, the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers will have the top two seeds in the AFC. On Tuesday, a Steelers legend who was released by the team earlier in the month signed with the Patriots, bringing more intrigue to the potential AFC Championship matchup. James Harrison has been a borderline Hall of Famer for the Steelers throughout his career but has not been used this season, and he will now continue his career in New England.
Another veteran who may be on the move is Jamaal Charles, who signed with the Denver Broncos this past offseason. Charles had been a standout running back for AFC West rival Kansas City during his career, but he made the move to Denver thinking he would get more playing time. Well, he has been used sparingly over the last couple of months, and would like to be released if he is just going to rot on the bench.
Bruce Arians has had a nice career as the head coach for the Arizona Cardinals, turning the franchise into a perennial contender in the NFC West. On Tuesday, it was rumored that he might be on the way out in Arizona after the Cardinals struggled through an injury-riddled season. Arians has won nearly 50 games as the head coach of the Cardinals, but he has dealt with health issues during his time with the team and it may be time for him to move on.
The Legion of Boom was once the most feared defensive unit in football, helping lead the Seattle Seahawks to a Super Bowl title. However, the Legion is starting to get up there in age, and some players are thinking about life after the Seahawks. After their game against the Dallas Cowboys, Earl Thomas told Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett to sign him, though he explained later that he meant when the Seahawks kick him to the curb.
The New York Giants have been a joke this season, but even through one of the most horrible seasons in team history, their players seem to find ways to make headlines off the field. On Tuesday, defensive back Landon Collins called fellow defensive back Eli Apple a “cancer” on ESPN New York, adding another chapter to this strange Giants season. Apple has had a rough second season in New York, and based on the team’s record, he is not the only one.
