In the post, Harrison said he was heading to Arizona to train. In 11 games last season, the five-time Pro Bowler posted 45 tackles and 5.5 sacks.
After spending the 2013 season with the Cincinnati Bengals, Harrison announced his retirement. Eighteen days later, he un-retired to join the Steelers, with whom he also played for from 2002-12.
Earlier this month, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said the team wasn't ruling out a return for Harrison. One obstacle could be the absence of long-time defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, who resigned from the team in January after 11 years. The Tennessee Titans hired LeBeau as assistant head coach/defense earlier this month, and could be another destination for Harrison.
Over his 12-year career, Harrison has recorded 692 tackles, 71.5 sacks, 29 forced fumbles and six interceptions.
