Bengals sign Defensive Tackle Orien Harris and OLB Darryl Blackstock

One of the stories that we buried earlier today, meaning that it was written but not published yet (well, except for this sentence explaining that it's not published yet), is that the Bengals signed agreed to terms with defensive tackle Orien Harris. OK, so it doesn't have the same punch as the monitoring the Houshmandzadeh story, but it's nice to get back to business, right?

Harris was part of a defensive tackle rotation that included starters Domata Peko and John Thornton before Pat Sims made his way into the starting lineup. Recording 22 tackles, three hurries, Harris was an Exclusive Rights free agent, which means he only recorded two accrued seasons and no team could sign him away.

Defensive Tackles signed for 2009

  • Domata Peko
  • Pat Sims
  • Jason Shirley
  • Orien Harris

The Bengals also got Darryl Blackstock's signed to a one-year deal several days after coming to terms on a verbal agreement.

Our goal with this post, to get 100 "who cares" comments from 100 different people. And go.
