Steelers sign James Harrison, place Jarvis Jones on IR-designated to return

The Pittsburgh Steelers made it official, signing veteran linebacker James Harrison.

The former NFL Defensive Player of the Year rejoins the team after a stint last year with the Cincinnati Bengals, a visit with the Arizona Cardinals and announcing his retirement.

Now, he's back as linebacker Jarvis Jones goes on injured reserve-designated to return.

"A simple and easy decision for us," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "We know James, James knows us, understands the scheme"
