Photo: James Harrison Reunites With Several Ex-Steelers Teammates

If you want to start your weekend on a nostalgia kick, you’ve come to the right place. Friday, James Harrison posted a photo with him and several notable former Pittsburgh Steelers’ teammates though there’s really no such thing as “former teammates” in Pittsburgh.

Harrison shared this collage of funny photos with: K Shaun Suisham, NT Casey Hampton, TE Jerame Tuman, LB Joey Porter, DE Brett Keisel, SS Troy Polamalu, and QB Ben Roethlisberger.

Polamalu is sporting a pair of mighty antlers while Roethlisberger swapped out a cowboy hat for a hardhat.

The group was back together in a yearly Steelers’ celebrity roast, put together by Mel Blount’s Foundation, that featured Polamalu as the roast of honor Friday night. A great chance for many teammates to get together and catch up.

Hampton looks a fair bit slimmer than we’re used to seeing him, even in his post-playing days. Harrison’s biceps still look as massive as ever and he could probably still log a couple of snaps on third down this fall. The group could also celebrate Porter’s son, Joey Jr., get drafted by the Steelers Friday night.

If you want to see the group cleaned up, the Steelers’ Twitter account posted the group – and many more – dressed to the nine’s for the roast.

Other notable Steelers in the photo include: head coach Bill Cowher, RB Jerome Bettis, Team President Art Rooney II, DT Joe Greene, Steelers’ DL Coach Karl Dunbar, CB Ike Taylor, RB Merril Hoge, OG Craig Wolfley, and even Porter Jr. came along with his father, which is a pretty cool way to be officially introduced to Steelers’ greats now that he’s officially part of the organization (of course, he grew up around many of these famous figures, too).

Moments like these is what makes Pittsburgh’s organization special and why so many refer to it as a fraternity. While they’re far from the only organization who holds these get-togethers, the Steelers seem to do it more often than most and there are consistent examples of former Steelers getting back together. Whether it’s special events like these, community events, players becoming coaches, or the many former Steelers you’ll see each summer at training camp, it’s always cool to see.
