BOSTON (CBS) — Gillette Stadium may turn into an old folks home sometime in the near future.

The Patriots are adding veteran linebacker James Harrison for the rest of the season, and the recently released Steeler celebrated his move by cracking a joke about Tom Brady’s old age.

Finally… A teammate that’s older than me!😂😂 @tombrady
