Bengals and former Steelers LB James Harrison will try to complete a deal this week. Harrison more signable than Karlos Dansby at this time.

There's high level of mutual interest between #Bengals & James Harrison. Contract talks could ramp up this weekend when 2 sides speak again

He will probably have some type of role as a nickel pass-rusher.

If all goes according to plan I expect him to have monster games vs. his former team.

Heard no team was really looking into him... wonder why. He was still pretty productive last year. Would he play OLB or DE with the Bengals?

He will probably be a pass rush specialist and one of those players who gives the inside scoop on his former team. Good signing as long as the contract is reasonable.

LB....I can pretty much guarantee.

Harrison doesnt have the length to be a 43 end.

My guess is Zimmer will use him like Denver uses Von Miller.

The Bengals have some pretty damn good DEs, but their LB corps is nothing special. Harrison could be a nice stop gap. He is still a force against the run.

Only concerns I would have for him (if I were a Bengals fan) is his health and the fact that it took him so so so long to learn the Steelers defense and Im not exactly sure how well he will adjust. Thats not to say he wont have a postive impact regardless, but I dont really expect him to jump into that defense and dominate.

He's kind of washed up at this point.

But as a stop gap, I think this is a fine move. I still fully expect Cincinatti to draft a LB in rounds 1 or 2 though.

In no way will this move "set" Cincy at Linebacker.

Someone should tell him that Colt McCoy and Mohammed Massaquoi are no longer in Cleveland. He might reconsider his destination.





Whose brains are he going to spear now?

He's going to most likely play SLB. The Bengals play a lot if nickel so he will be coming out a lot

Interesting move. Pass rush specialist. I see a solid but unspectacular season.

Considering he didn't have any of those last year... Why would he have any against anyone this year?
