Linebacker James Harrison is bringing his impressive career and his sizeable training staff to Cincinnati, motivated in part by the way things ended in Pittsburgh.

Harrison signed with the Bengals as a free agent last month after he and the Steelers couldn't agree on how to restructure his contract. Pittsburgh let the former NFL defensive player of the year leave as part of its move to get under the salary cap.

Harrison worked out with his new teammates on Tuesday. He said it was a definite change to be in the Bengals locker room. He also acknowledged that he's motivated to some degree by how things ended in Cincinnati.

The Bengals' first home game next season is on a Monday night against Pittsburgh.
