Linebacker James Harrison announced in an Instagram post on Sunday night that he has decided not to retire.
The 36-year-old Harrison will be a free agent next month after spending the 2014 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
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 Titanshired 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.
