James Harrison returned to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Wednesday to a locker room that looks different than the one he left two years ago.
While the five-time Pro Bowl linebacker was able to get his familiar No. 92 from teammate Daniel McCullers, Harrison's old locker has been taken over by wide receiver Antonio Brown.
Once a vital cog to one of the NFL's top defenses, Harrison will be a role player most Sundays. The Steelers have undergone a youth movement in his absence, particularly at linebacker.
Arthur Moats, 26, will start at outside linebacker this week against winless Tampa Bay. Sean Spence, 24, will start at inside linebacker. Harrison will be a pass-rush specialist if he sees the field at all following his return from a brief retirement.
