Harrison announced his decision on Instagram Monday morning.

Harrison made the announcement on social media, saying he's "missed way too much for way too long ... and I'm done". "Many thanks to my family, coaches, the fans, and everyone who played a role in my football life", Harrison said.

With his career now over, Harrison can begin polishing up the speech he'll deliver in Canton, Ohio. He was a Pro Bowler for five straight seasons from 2007-2011, a First-Team All-Pro selection in 2008 and 2010, and the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2008.

At a position where few last into their mid-30s, Harrison continued to thrive.
