The 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and five-time Pro Bowl selection, Harrison has recorded 82.5 sacks, eight interceptions and 570 tackles in 191 career games with the Cincinnati Bengals and Steelers.

Harrison would get a chance to play against his former team if both teams advance to the AFC Championship Game for a second straight season. He was active in just five games despite being injury-free and with the Steelers turning more toward outside linebackers Bud Dupree and rookie T.J. Watt.
