Get ready Steelers fans – you will get to see James Harrison in 2013.
Twice – and in primetime.
Harrison and AFC North rival Cincinnati came to terms on a two-year deal on Friday, ending a long courting process that saw the two sides end talks on Monday, but start them up again late yesterday.
The former NFL Defensive Player of the Year was released by the Steelers in early March after he refused to take a pay cut.
The Steelers and Bengals will meet twice on primetime in the newly released NFL slate that came out Thursday. The first meeting will be Monday, September 16th in Cincy on Monday Night Football.
The second meeting will be Sunday night December 15th in Pittsburgh.
Harrison made the announcement of his signing on Twitter just a short time ago.
Whodey!!!!!!!!!!! Hello Cincinnati!!!!
