James Harrison Continues to Negotiate with Bengals, But Talks Aren't Going Well



The Cincinnati Bengals are working to each a contract agreement with outside linebacker James Harrison, but talks are not going well and a contract getting ironed out today is unlikely, according to USA Today’s Mike Garafolo and the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Joe Reedy

The sides haven’t made much progress in talks over a new contract over the past few days and negotiations are “not going well,” a person informed of the progress of talks told USA TODAY Sports.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because negotiations will continue and were to remain private, said more talks are expected. So while the progress isn’t encouraging to this point, the sides aren’t locked in a stalemate just yet.



Hopefully, the two sides will reach an agreement before the end of the week, so the Bengals can finalize their draft board based on their needs. Obviously if they are unable to sign Harrison, linebacker will be right at the top of their needs heading into next Thursday.
