James Harrison, was thought to be a spy for the New England Patriots. He proved otherwise., 39
With such a limited role for the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to 34-year-old linebacker Lorenzo Alexander., few expected the linebacker to make an impact under Bill Belichick. But all that rest in Pittsburgh — which Harrison hated — must have done the veteran some good
“We all know he takes great care of his body by the amount of money he invests there,Authentic Golden Tate III Jersey, all those things.,Authentic Calais Campbell Jersey, right? And that’s what’s key in a lot of these cases,Womens Adam Thielen Jersey,” Alexander told Patriots Wire at radio row during Super Bowl week. “Just being available at this age,Womens Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, massages, making sure you feel good when Sunday rolls around. A lot of that comes from therapy, dry needling — a lot of those things that I know James is doing. Lifting weights

That rematch never materialized,Womens Golden Tate III Jersey, and Harrison became much more than an informant.
He played a season-high 69 snaps (92 percent) in Super Bowl LII,Authentic Adam Thielen Jersey, and managed 158 snaps in his four games with the Patriots from Week 17 through the Super Bowl. During that span,Authentic Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, two sacks and a forced fumble. He was also in on a strip sack — which Alexander referenced — attributed solely to linebacker Kyle Van Noy against the Jaguars in the AFC championship. The play could have just as easily gotten credited to Harrison, he also logged 13 tackles, who crashed into Blake Bortles simultaneously with Van Noy.
they were probably grateful the Steelers had rested him all season. Harrison probably looked fresher than most of their 20-year-old rookies like Deatrich Wise and Adam Butler.,When the Patriots got him
