According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today, the Cincinnati Bengals are kicking the tires on former Pittsburgh Steelers free agent James Harrison and will meet with thefree agent linebacker on Thursday.
The Bengals are in search of help at the linebacker position and Harrison would give them a solid pass rusher and some nasty attitude. Harrison had brief talks with the Steelers before they decided to go in another direction.
Harrison turned down a pay cut from the Steelers and is now seeking a deal. Garafolo writes:
‘Harrison was to meet with the Baltimore Ravens recently and was in Baltimore but did not meet with the team because the Ravens reached an agreement with Elvis Dumervil instead.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported late last month the Steelers told Harrison they're not interested in having him back. The team cut him after attempts to work out a pay cut from his scheduled salary of $6.57 million failed.’
