Harrison reportedly has signed with the Patriots, per ESPN's Field Yates, after he was cut by the Steelers. Brady is 40 years old while Harrison is younger by just one year. "A teammate that's older than me!"

Harrison confirmed the signing with an Instagram post on Tuesday before the Patriots made an official announcement.

But the Patriots might have a far different motivation for adding Harrison for the stretch run.

The 12.64-km section was granted safety approval by the Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) last month. The Delhi Metro's magenta line will cut down the travel time from south Delhi to Noida to just 45 minutes.

New England has played in each of the past six AFC title games and has won two of the past three Super Bowls, including their overtime classic against the Atlanta Falcons this past February.

The Patriots are in a position to benefit from help at the line-backing level with Kyle Van Noy dealing injury and Dont'a Hightower sidelined for the season.

To make room on their roster, the Patriots released linebacker Trevor Reilly. Both teams have locked up a first-round bye in the playoffs.

He stepped down from the role to serve as Google - and later Alphabet's - executive chairman, a role he's served in until today. The key outlet for that philanthropy has been The Schmidt Family Foundation , founded by Schmidt and his wife Wendy in 2006.

Harrison, 39, recorded one sack in five games this season but saw his playing time significantly reduced as the Steelers turned to rookie linebacker T.J. Watt and third-year linebacker Bud Dupree.

New England, which won the AFC East for a ninth consecutive season, can wrap up the AFC's top seed with a win over the Jets this weekend or a loss by the Steelers, who host winless Cleveland.

Both the Steelers and Patriots have earned a playoff berth and a bye-week in the upcoming National Football League playoffs.
