Things certainly looked positive these past fews days of the possibility of the Cincinnati Bengals and former Steelers linebacker James Harrison coming to an agreement, but then all of sudden, a brick wall appeared, reports Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. A source informed of the process told Rapoport that "It's not going well," adding that it, "Doesn't look real good." It couldn't be any clearer than that we suppose. Things may change today or tomorrow, whatever the snag is, but as of today it doesn't look like Harrison will be in a Bengals uniform any time soon. But all is not lost; NFL.com's Chris Wesseling writes that "if Harrison's demands are too high, the Bengals could opt for Plan B. Former Miami Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby still is available after visiting the Bengals last week." Asked a source to characterize the James Harrison/Bengals talks: "Doesn't look real good." These things can always change tho — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 16, 2013 var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
