    Not true.

    He counts $5 mil against the cap, but for signing bonus and contract restructurings in the past...

    Cap number is all I care about since it aint my money.

    What people fail to realize is that a large chunk of the total cap hit had he stayed was going to happen anyway.
    Because much of his hit includes the signing bonus etc, we did not save 10 plus mil in cap space cutting him, more like half that.

    Harrison contract shows what a beating he took
    Posted by Darin Gantt on April 24, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    As it pertains to new Bengals linebacker James Harrison, we now have a dollar figure to attach to pride.

    And his was costly.

    According to Howard Balzer of the Sports Xchange, Harrison’s new two-year deal with the Bengals is worth $4.45 million, including a $1.2 million signing bonus.

    The deal includes base salaries of $1.4 million and $1.1 million, workout bonuses of $100,000 each year, and per-game roster bonuses which could total $300,000 this year and $250,000 next year.

    That means his maximum payout this year is $3 million.

    Compare that to the what he could have made in Pittsburgh, and he clearly lost this offseason.

    According to an earlier report, Harrison turned down a 30 percent pay cut from the Steelers, which included a chance to earn the balance back in incentives.

    Based on the $6.57 million in base salary he would have received before he was released, that comes out to around $4.5 million this year.

    So while he said he didn’t hate the Steelers, he’ll doubtless be motivated to make up the difference on the field twice this season.

    I hope he proves it in 14 games... but not in the other 2.

    I don't want him proving squat in the other 14 games. He's playing in our division. I want him to suck badly and cost Cincy a playoff spot that we end up taking. F the Bengals, Browns, Ravens and every team that stands in our way to getting into the SuperBowl.

    Yes. I hope him professional failure forever. Personal happiness good on him, hope he finds it.

    I want the Bumgals to regret the day they signed Harrison. No way do I want anyone on another team we play to be successful...ever.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I would prefer he knock the snot out of the Ravens and Cleveland... while dropping 2 to us.

    While I get your point I agree with Flippy and Ovi on this DESPITE being one of the most vocal JH backers here.
    Now that he is gone, "I hope" he is indeed washed up as a player, because it confirms the team's choice.

    The better he plays the worse I will feel that the team let him go.

    JH "says" he feels as good as he did since 2009. I hope this is not true.
    Two bad games versus us is just part of it for me.
    I will be sick if this guy makes the probowl as a Bengal, especially if our defense declines (as I expect it will).

    I dont hate JH, or resent him, I just will feel better knowing the team made the right choices.

    My POV here would be vindicated if he dominates as a Bengal, but I hope I am wrong.
