Yates says a source informed him that Harrison is signing with the team. After playing in 587 snaps a year ago, Harrison was only at 40 snaps before his release.

Harrison visited the Patriots on Tuesday after clearing waviers and becoming a free agent following his release by Pittsburgh. Harrison will also serve as insurance for the Patriots with Kyle Van Noy's health status still in doubt. Harrison finished his Steelers stint as the franchise's all-time leader in sacks with 80.5, eighth among active players.
Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers had an absolutely dominating performance against the Houston Texans, reporters in the postgame still felt like they needed to ask head coach Mike Tomlin about the absence of James Harrison. In his career, Harrison has 82.5 sacks, eight interceptions, and 570 tackles, and started 117 of 192 games in his National Football League career.

He had earlier "dedicated the Kochi Metro to the nation in June, and the Hyderabad Metro in November", a press statement said.
The Steelers released the 39-year-old linebacker on Saturday to provide room for the return of right tackle Marcus Gilbert from suspension. The #1 seed in the AFC though is still up for grabs.
The Patriots and Steelers were already competing for the top two spots in the AFC and delivered one of the best games of the year only nine days ago, but now there is an added twist to this rivalry.
The Patriots can clinch home-field advantage with a win over the New York Jets or a Steelers loss to Cleveland in Week 17. Both teams have locked up a first-round bye in the playoffs.
