Harrison Signed, Bengals Look For Depth

Lions Focused On Little Picture Against Bengals (Image 1)

Linebacker James Harrison has signed his 2-year deal with Cincinnati, giving the Bengals a proven playmaker in 1 of their areas of concern heading into the NFL draft.

Now, it becomes more about picking players who will provide depth on a team returning intact from a playoff season.

The Bengals have spent lots of money in the offseason retaining players from a 10-6 team that lost to Houston in the opening round of the playoffs for the second year in a row. Cincinnati still hasn't won a playoff game since 1990.

The last main concern is offensive tackle. Right tackle Andre Smith is an unrestricted free agent. The Bengals would like to know whether he's coming back before they make their first pick on Thursday night.
