Too bad I already wrote up my list of the best revenge games on the 2013 NFL schedule, because James Harrison returning to Pittsburgh will definitely be intense.
Harrison signed a two-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday, ending a week-long process of negotiations.
The 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year is psyched about going to his new team:
Whodey!!!!!!!!!!! Hello Cincinnati!!!!

Though Harrison is turning 35 in May and had knee surgery before last season, he was still effective. Harrison had 70 tackles, six sacks, and two forced fumbles in 13 games last season. This is a great addition for the Bengals, and you better believe Harrison will be motivated to prove the Steelers wrong.
The Bengals visit Pittsburgh in Week 15.
