PITTSBURGH (AP) — James Harrison is itching to get back to work. The commute could be an easy one.

The five-time Pro Bowl linebacker posted a thinly veiled message via Instagram on Monday night that hinted at an imminent return to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Harrison signed a one-day contract to retire as a member of the Steelers on Sept. 5. The team is thin at linebacker after Ryan Shazier and Jarvis Jones went down with injuries in Sunday night's 37-19 win at Carolina.

Harrison tweeted "I'll give it one more year" while linking to a video in which he asks his two sons if they want him to play football. They hesitate, but when prompted that if he played for the Steelers he could stay home, his sons answer yes emphatically.
