CINCINNATI A defensive backs best friend is a good pass rush. The Bengals already have one of the best in the NFL but Leon Hall is perfectly fine with adding a little more help. Ditto for Adam Jones.
The Bengals didnt sign James Harrison as a token gesture or PR move for his name value. Both they and Harrison expect the 35-year-old linebacker to be an integral part of the Bengals making a push to become more than just a one-and-done playoff team.
Harrison arrived in Cincinnati on Monday and met with the media on Tuesday after working out with his new teammates. Harrison signed a two-year deal with the Bengals on April 23 after nine seasons with the Steelers. He helped Pittsburgh win two Super Bowls in three tries while amassing 64 sacks and 28 forced fumbles and being named All-Pro twice with five Pro Bowl appearances.
The Steelers asked Harrison to restructure his contract and take a pay cut. The two sides couldnt reach an agreement and the team released Harrison.
