Report: Harrison Announces Future NFL Plans

Advertisement

New England Patriots linebacker James Harrison has provided a pass rushing spark for the team that has been a key part of their Super Bowl run.

Now the 39-year old has announced that after this season, he would like to continue his NFL career.

“I maybe want to play a year at 40, maybe 41,” Harrison told ESPN reporter Mike Reiss. “But at some point in time, I’m going to have to stop [playing].”

Harrison explains his reasoning that he wouldn’t allow his son to start playing the sport until he was all done and that that is why he wants to stop sooner rather than later.

“I told my son [James III] he could play contact football when I stop, so I’m going to have to give it up in the near future,” Harrison said. “He’s already 10, and then he’ll be playing against kids who have been doing it for 4 or 5 years, contact football, and they’ll know how to take a hit and give a hit.”

Harrison is currently on a one-year contract with the Patriots and if he doesn’t sign a new contract, he will be a free agent in the offseason.

  1. I’d like to see him back for sure….at a reasonable contract of course but he would at leadership and a veteran that could groom the younger players coming up.

  2. Play another year with the Patriots. This is an experienced player who like Brady takes great care of himself. He’s really helped set the edge, which had been a weakness of the Pats’ D.

  3. Great athlete, hopes he stays a Patriot for next year, has so much to offer and loves his job, he wld be great help and to share his knowledge with other Patriots. Then retire as a Patriot Champion
