Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey sure has a take on former linebacker and longtime Steeler James Harrison signing with New England.

Harrison was released by Pittsburgh earlier this week and signed a one-year deal with the Patriots Tuesday after clearing waivers. The 39-year-old linebacker saw reduced playing time this season in favor of Bud Dupree and rookie T.J. Watt. Harrison has only played 40 snaps through 14 games this season, compared to 587 last year.

Asked to weigh-in Wednesday after practice, Pouncey says Harrison has tarnished his standing with the Steelers organization and needs to take responsibility for wanting out. Have a listen:

It's safe to say we're in for a show if the Steelers and Patriots meet in the AFC Championship Game on Jan. 21 in Foxboro.
