New Orleans Saints v Pittsburgh Steelers

Steelers linebacker James Harrison believes no one should have to work on three separate holidays in the span of six weeks, which is why he’s now strongly contemplating retirement.

The NFL’s newly released 2016 schedule has Pittsburgh playing on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day – something Harrison understandably isn’t happy about.

“Retirement sounds better than ever when you realize you’d have to work on Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year’s,” the soon-to-be 38-year-old wrote on Instagram.

Hope you didn’t have any big plans this holiday season, James!
