Default Re: Bengals and Harrison agree on deal

Bengals likely used Dansby to leverage Harrison

Posted by Mike Florio on April 20, 2013

When linebacker James Harrison agreed to terms with the Bengals, our first thought was that the Bengals had extended an offer both to Harrison and linebacker Karlos Dansby, with a simple message: Whoever accepts first gets the job.

Thatís the obvious inference flowing from comments by coach Marvin Lewis suggesting that one of the two linebackers, but not both, will be signed before the draft.

While itís possible that the Bengals were going to sign Dansby if they didnít sign Harrison, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Dansby heard not a peep from the Bengals since visiting the team on April 10. This suggests that the Bengals used the possibility of signing Dansby as leverage to close the deal with Harrison, with whom the Bengals had been regularly negotiating.

Itís a valid tactic, and it apparently worked. How well it worked will depend on the details of Harrisonís contract.

The fact that nothing has been leaked from Harrisonís camp regarding the value of the deal means that, from Harrisonís perspective, the deal likely isnít anything to crow about.

Yeah it is possible the Steelers would have won the game. It would have been a lot harder if Harrison doesn't pick that one off. Townsend was 3 yards off his man that was a guaranteed touchdown. It would have been 14-10 Arizona at the half.

Anyways if the Steelers had lost the game I would have blamed the defense for not scoring a second defensive touchdown.

Yeah that was some amazing blocking on the runback. Harrison should have given the damn ball to Townsend... who was marginally faster.

2 yr/4.45 million. He would have made more in one season if he had accepted Pittsburgh's offer.

It is a shame because I will really miss Harrison, he will be stuck in a 4-3 defense with little opportunity to pass rush, and the Steelers have to find someone else to knock Cleveland Browns unconscious.
