The Cincinnati Bengals, on Tuesday, released outside linebacker James Harrison after just one year with the team.
Harrison’s most significant contribution in his season in Cincinnati was his performance on HBO’s “Hard Knocks.”
Many thanks to all the @Bengals fans for your support over the last year – I had a great time in Cincinnati.

The 35-year-old linebacker played in 15 games, recording 30 tackles and two sacks while interception one pass. Prior to coming to Cincinnati, Harrison spent 10 years with the Pittsburgh Steelers racking up 64 sacks.
With the release, the Bengals now must find a replacement at strong-side linebacker. I suggest Rey Maualuaga with Burfict moving into the middle and Sean Porter (or anyone the team acquires) getting a run on the weak side.
