Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has announced he will retire from the NFL.

"I've missed way too much for way too long...and I'm done", Harrison wrote.

The five-time Pro Bowler announced his retirement on Instagram Monday morning, ending his 15-year career in which he spent most of his time with the Steelers. He'll leave the league with 84.5 career sacks after he went undrafted out of Kent State and joined the Steelers in 2002. He retired briefly in September 2014 only to be lured back to the Steelers.

Harrison was named Defensive Player of the Year for the 2008 season, which he capped with the longest interception return in Super Bowl history, his 100-yard effort helping the Steelers to victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII.

He signed with the New England Patriots last offseason. He appeared in five games with the Steelers before being cut by the team and then played in one game regular season game and three postseason contests with New England.
