Steelers To See James Harrison Twice In 2013 – Inks Two-Year Deal With Bengals

James Harrison

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.

  1. I have a lot of respect for Harrison and the way he has gone about his business. Sorry they could not at least give him one more year . The bus had another year. Thats the nature of this game. For the steelers and the fans hope James has minimal impact on both meetings.

  2. ugh!!! Whoever is playing LT better have his head on a swivel or Ben might think his motorcycle accident in 2006 was a scraped knee compared to what Deebo is bringing!
