Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison worked out for the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday and by all accounts, he impressed the coaches.
According to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, Harrison could stay in the AFC North and get the chance to go up against his old team twice a year. Rosenthal writes:
‘James Harrison might wind up staying in the AFC North, but not with the Baltimore Ravens, as many expected early in the free agency process.
The Bengals have been active this week hosting linebackers. Karlos Dansby and Akeem Jordan also are in town.
The team is looking for a starting strong-side linebacker to go with middle linebacker Rey Maualuga and weak-side linebacker Vontaze Burfict.’
