James Harrison rumors: LB reportedly negotiating again with Bengals

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The former Steeler looked like he would sign with Cincinnati last week, but negotiations fell apart quickly. He may still end up there yet.

The Cincinnati Bengals and free agent linebacker James Harrison are talking again, according to a report from Joe Reedy of Cincinnati.com. The former Steeler looked like he would sign with the Bengals earlier in April, but the negotiations broke off abruptly.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said that he thinks something will be done by the start of the draft, one way or another. If they can't sign Harrison, former Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby could also be an option. Cincinnati has a need at linebacker, as former starter Manny Lawson left as a free agent to sign with the Buffalo Bills.

Before being released in March, Harrison had spent his entire nine year career in Pittsburgh. The 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and five-time Pro Bowler has 64 career sacks and 456 career tackles, and had 49 tackles and six sacks in 13 games in 2012.
