Harrison will return to the Steelers for the 2016 season.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison recently completed a six-week training period that helped him determine that he'll indeed return for a 14th NFL season. All but one of those have come with the Steelers, for whom he posted 40 tackles and five sacks as a 37-year-old last season. Clearly still capable of making an impact, Harrison will once again provide valuable depth and experience to the Steelers' defense this time around.

Harrison has scheduled a six-week training period this offseason, after which he'll determine whether to play in 2016, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "I'm going to start the process of making sure that I can get back to where I need to be so I'm able to give 100 percent," he said. "If I'm not able to get back to that point, I'll do what's necessary to be fair to my team and myself."

EDGE Analysis

Harrison remained a pass-rushing menace in his age-37 season, racking up at least 5.0 sacks for the eighth time in 12 campaigns. He further recorded a sack in both of the Steelers' playoff matchups among 11 total tackles, but his NFL future is again weighing on his mind. In order to determine the next course of action, he'll start a training regimen at Performance Enhancement Professionals in North Scottsdale, Az., in the second week of March. The six-week plan will flow seamlessly into the Steelers' offseason program, meaning he'll know one way or another whether his body will be up to the task in the fall.

Harrison totaled seven tackles (six solo), including a sack in the Steelers' loss to the Broncos on Sunday. He finished the post season with 11 tackles, including two sacks.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison continued where he left off from the regular season, in which he totaled 40 tackles (27 solo), including five sacks in 2015. He also had an interception and two forced fumbles. Since coming out of retirement in 2014, Harrison has recorded 10.5 sacks in 26 regular season games, second only to Cameron Heyward (12) over that span for Pittsburgh. With one year remaining on his contract, Harrison, who turns 38 before next season, will have to decide whether or not he will retire for a second time. However, he is worthy of fantasy consideration in IDP leagues for the 2016 season.

Harrison's five sacks show that the old man can still get after the quarterback effectively, and he will look to keep it going this week at Baltimore.

This was a monster game for Harrison, who also forced a fumble. With three sacks, Harrison is now tied with Cameron Heyward for the team lead with fve this season, and now holds the Steelers' record with 18 multi-sack games since sacks became an official statistic in 1982.

After putting in three full practices this week, Harrison will share snaps at right outside linebacker with Jarvis Jones. His presence will help as the Steelers look to slow down Thomas Rawls and the Seahawks rushing attack.

Harrison (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game, Chris Adamski of the Tribuen Review reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison didn't practice all week, so this news doesn't come as much of a surprise. The 37-year-old will miss his first game of the season, but with the Steelers slated for a bye next week, Harrison will have plenty of time to recuperate for the next matchup against the Seahawks in Week 12.
