Bengals Release LB James Harrison After Just One Season
According to Thursday tweet by linebacker James Harrison, he thinks his time as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals is about to be over after just one season in the Queen City.
After not agreeing to take a pay cut last offseason, Harrison was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers and ultimately signed a two-year, $4.45 million contract with the Bengals. That deal included a $1.2 million signing bonus and in his one season in Cincinnati, Harrison played all of 409 snaps including the one playoff game. He registered just 30 total tackles to go along with two sacks and an interception.
With Harrison about to turn 36 years of age, there’s not likely to be much interest in him from other teams.
The Bengals have finnally announced that Harrison has indeed been released.
Many thanks to all the @Bengals fans for your support over the last year – I had a great time in Cincinnati.
