    Report: Bengals, James Harrison break off talks

    Report: Bengals, James Harrison break off talks

    By Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
    April 17, 2013



    James Harrison might have overestimated his market value.

    The Bengals need a linebacker and James Harrison needs a team.

    But after reports suggested they would hammer out a deal this week, those talks have broken off, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport tweeted Wednesday. Cincinnati also is interested in former Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby, a slightly younger option.

    It's possible nothing will happen until after the draft, when the Bengals also could address their need.

    Harrison, who turns 35 in May, is not known to have any other suitors. He reportedly refused to take a 30 percent pay cut from the $6.57 million he was scheduled to earn in Pittsburgh this season, prompting the Steelers to release him.

    The five-time Pro Bowler with 64 sacks and 29 forced fumbles might have to reduce his price substantially to end his free-agent limbo.

    Take a gamble like they did with Starks the last few years and try to sign him late in the summer.

    I'm just glad not to have him going to a team in the AFCN. The funny thing is that according to reports, the Bengals weren't going to use him properly anyway. Now they can pursue Dansby, a younger but lesser player who will cost them more. They may have a leg up on paper going into the season, but they still do things to remind everyone why they have sucked for so very long.

    Actually finding it hard to believe that there is NO market for Harrison, it's not like he stopped being able to play last season.
