Bengals cut Harris to add Johnson
Posted 29 minutes ago

a a In order to make room for former Chiefs running back Larry Johnson on their roster, the Bengals Tuesday waived second-year defensive tackle Orien Harris. Harris, traded for running back Brian Leonard in May, was re-signed Oct. 20 and played in one game.

Johnson makes his first official appearance as a Bengal in 3 p.m. news conference Tuesday at Paul Brown Stadium.

So Orien is exchanged for another RB from Missouri. If it works half as well as the other move, I'll be happy.

Welcome to the family Larry Johnson. Always good to have more Johnsons, it confuses the other team.

I really like the way Marvin Lewis came across in this. He said smart, motivating things about LJ, the situation, and the team. He has an aura of confidence about him nowadays that I haven't noticed in a while.

Also, it was gratifying to hear LJ basically single out Marvin as his reason for choosing to come play for the Bengals. I really don't think this move will backfire as I don't believe Marvin and the rest of the locker room will let it.

I noticed that too. Marvin sounded alot better than he normally does but I guess that might come with a little more media attention than they're usually getting.

I had to laugh when LJ said, "I'd be lying..." He wants the Chiefs game badly and he wants to be playing in that game.

I would have enjoyed this conference more if the face beside LJ was Jim Anderson.

:tailgate:

this kinda reminds me of stephon marbury to the celtics last year

i like the move, he should be extatic about being here, and he was really really good for a couple of years when he had good blocking

considering we have become a grind it out play defense run the ball kinda team he could really be a nice fit... we certainly dont want to get cedric injured before the playoffs
