Steelers' James Harrison confirms he'll play in 2016


James Harrison will play another NFL season.

The soon-to-be 38-year-old pass rusher confirmed Monday he would return for his 14th season, with an "I'm Back" picture on Instagram.

It was an expected move after Harrison's agent said in February the linebacker planned to honor his final year with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Harrison compiled five sacks in 2015 as a rotational pass rusher. He started one game.

The Steelers didn't address the edge rushing position early in last week's draft, making Harrison's return important to Pittsburgh.
