    As it pertains to new Bengals linebacker [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/665/james-harrison"]James Harrison[/URL], we now have a dollar figure to attach to pride.


    And his was costly.


    According to Howard Balzer of the Sports Xchange, Harrisonís new two-year deal with the Bengals [URL="https://twitter.com/HBalzer721/statuses/327068476499976193"]is worth $4.45 million[/URL], 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 [URL="http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/03/09/harrison-rejected-30-percent-pay-cut-opportunity-to-earn-it-back/"]turned down a 30 percent pay cut[/URL] 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 [URL="http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/04/24/james-harrison-i-dont-hate-the-steelers/"]didnít hate the Steelers[/URL], heíll doubtless be motivated to make up the difference on the field twice this season.
    What an idiot. At least I hope he has fired his agent since he can't fire himself since both are morons for turning down the Steelers' offer.

    I hope that ego was worth $1.5 million this year.
