According to reports earlier on Thursday, the Cincinnati Bengals hosted free agent linebacker James Harrison. And from the sounds of it, things sound promising, according to Ian Rapoport with the NFL Network.
James Harrison & #Bengals: No immediate signing. They liked what they heard. LB coach Paul Guenther talked with Harrison til midnight Wed— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 11, 2013
Citing someone "who saw Harrison" today, Rapoport tweets that Harrison has enough hunger left that would adequately fit in Cincinnati's nickel formation as a pass rusher.
Source who saw Harrison today: "He still has that mean look in his eye, that attitude." Think he could help Cincy as base OLB/nickel rusher— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 11, 2013
If James Harrison still has it, can punish quarterbacks, I'm good with that. But that's a considerable IF that needs to be answered.— Josh Kirkendall (@CincyJungle) April 11, 2013
Yep. We actually embedded our own tweet. Behind the Steel Curtain thinks he still has it.
@cincyjungle He still has it. Doesn't heal quick these days, but by the end of the season he was the best Steelers OLB and it wasn't close— BTSC Steelers (@btsteelcurtain) April 11, 2013
Carlos Dunlap, Michael Johnson, Geno Atkins, James Harrison. Pick your poison.
