Harrison, who was released by the Steelers in March after playing his entire 10-year NFL career for the American Football Conference North Division team, agreed to a deal with Cincinnati on April 19. The team listed the signing today on its website. Contract terms weren’t disclosed, though ESPN said it’s a two- year deal, citing Harrison’s agent, Bill Parise.
The 34-year-old Harrison won the 2008 Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year award. He was named a first-team All-Pro that season and in 2010.
Harrison has 64 career sacks. The six he had last season while playing 13 games marked his fewest since becoming a full- time starter in 2007.
The Bengals went 10-6 last season to finish in second place behind the Baltimore Ravens, earning a playoff spot as a wild- card team. The Steelers were 8-8.
