Bengals reach agreement with ex-Steeler Harrison
The Cincinnati Bengals reached agreement on a two-year deal with former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison, his agent said last night.
The Bengals didn’t confirm the deal because it hadn’t been signed, but agent Bill Parise said Harrison has taken a physical and all of the contract details have been worked out.
Harrison tweeted: “Whodey!!!!!!!!!!! Hello Cincinnati!!!!”
Harrison, who turns 35 in May, was released by the Steelers last month in a salary-cap move. By moving to another AFC North team, he will get to face the Steelers twice a season. The Bengals’ first home game is Sept. 16 — a Monday night — against the Steelers.
