The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced that they’ve signed James Harrison to a two-year deal. This ones comes one day after his two sons were split on the decision and said he was going to pray on it.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Yesterday, Harrison said he was going to decide between the Steelers and the Tennessee Titans. Dick LeBeau, the former Steelers defensive coordinator, is with the Titans, which is why Harrison considered signing with them.

This will be his 12th season with the Steelers and 13th season overall. He spent the 2013 season with the Cincinnati Bengals, before retiring and coming back to the team last season due to injuries.

Last season, after unretiring, he had 45 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 11 games. He also had four starts and two tackles and the Steelers postseason game.

He originally signed with the team as an undrafted free agent in 2002. In his career, he had 157 regular season appearances, including 108 starts.

He made five straight Pro Bowl selections and helped the Steelers to two Super Bowl wins in XL and XLIII.
