Bengals release James Harrison

Updated: Thursday, March 13 2014, 02:33 PM EDT
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The Bengals terminated the contract of LB James Harrison, releasing him to free agency.

Harrison joined the Bengals as a free agent in 2013 and helped lead the team to the AFC North Division title. He saw action in 15 games, with 10 starts, and had 40 tackles, two sacks, an interception and a forced fumble. Prior to joining the Bengals, he played nine seasons with Pittsburgh, earning five Pro Bowl berths, two first-team selections on the Associated Press All-Pro team and one AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year award. The Akron, Ohio native first entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent, out of Kent State.

“It was great for our coaches, players and fans to have James on our team last year,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. “He’s a player everyone looks up to because of his ability, his accomplishments and his drive to be the best. He helped us win a division title with his play and with the example he set.

“It’s time for us to go a different direction now, with some younger guys, but we will all still reap benefits from having had James with us as a Bengal last year.”
