The Cincinnati Bengals and James Harrison have spent the past few days courting each other. The Bengals are an up and coming team and feel like they are a veteran playmaker on defense from taking the next step.
The Bengals feel like Harrison would be a perfect fit, because according to USA Today, “he brings a mean streak and he hates the Steelers now.”
“He hates the Steelers now, and that’s somebody we need on our side,” Dunlap said.
“He would fit right in over here. One of the things I like about him is he brings that intensity and swagger to the defense,” defensive tackle Domata Peko said. “Whenever I watch him play, he is knocking people’s heads off. That’s what you want on that team. With Michael Johnson, Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins, those are a lot of playmakers out there and to add someone like Harrison would be awesome for us.”
The AFC North is about to get ratcheted up a bit, and it will be interesting to see with all the roster changes, who progresses, and who regresses.

Will the Bengals really be getting a bargain with Roger Goodell’s...
