What does James Harrison share with Neil O’Donnell not to mention John Jackson, Myron Bell, Oliver Gibson, and Jamain Stephens?
If you guessed that he was an ex-Steelers who wound up as a Cincinnati Bengal then you’d be spot on.
Allen Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review is reporting that the Cincinnati Bengals signed James Harrison to a 2 year contract. Terms were not disclosed, although it is likely for less money than he left on the table when Steelers tried to get him to accept a 30% pay cut. When Harrison balked, the Steelers cut him, and Harrison has been trying to land a job with another AFC North team since then.
Harrison himself tweeted the news, showing he's already incorporating lingua franca of The Jungle into his vocabulary.
Whodey!!!!!!!!!!! Hello Cincinnati!!!!In an trivial twist to the story, Behind the Steel Curtain is citing an ESPN report that says that Harrison will not actually sign the contract until May.

- Not that it really matters.
- One thing is clear.
And nobody thrives on motivation like James Harrison.
- If you doubt it, just watch the Steelers 75 Anniversary game where he essentially ended Steve McNair's career as a starter.
