The graying badass, who has amassed 617 tackles, 64 sacks, five interceptions and 29 forced fumbles over 131 contests, remains a standout pass-rusher.
Harrison, a 6-foot, 242 pound menacing presence on the gridiron, will immediately strengthen Cincinnati’s toothless front seven.
Despite going 10-6 and qualifying for the playoffs in consecutive campaigns for the first time since 1982, the Bengals’ serviceable defense yielded an unimpressive 24.4 points per game last autumn.
Although increasingly brittle, Harrison will toughen Cincinnati and help the historically inept franchise reach the postseason for the fourth time in the past five seasons in 2013.
Inking the 2008 Defensive Player of the Year, James Harrison and the Bengals will develop an effective partnership in “The Queen City.”by
