The Cincinnati Bengals made a surprising move on the third day of NFL Free Agency.

They saved $2.03 million in salary-cap space by releasing 35-year-old outside linebacker James Harrison.

The one year experiment ended because his role as the run stopper at outside linebacker was diminished because the Bengals played against a majority of teams that used the spread offense. The Bengals decided to go with younger, more talented linebackers.

Harrison signed with Cincinnati on April 23, 2013 to a two-year contract as the biggest name last offseason.

Before the 2013 season, the former Kent State star played for the Pittsburgh Steelers where he was the kingpin of the defense garnering five Pro Bowls and was named the 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

The National Football League can be cruel at times, even for a star player who helped win division championships and Super Bowls.

Hines Ward, the All-Pro wide receiver of the Pittsburgh Steelers was told that the team will release him before the NFL’s calendar year which happens to come in the month of March.

The former University of Georgia quarterback who has spent all of his 14 years in the Steel City, had said several weeks ago that he would take a pay cut to stay with the Steelers, was not given that option by management.

Ward was scheduled to make $4 million in base salary in 2012, was just too much money to pay a #4 receiver in the Steelers minds eventhough he is still a playmaker.

Ward holds the Pittsburgh Steelers franchise records for receptions (1,000), receiving yards (12,083) and receiving touchdowns (85).

Ward said in a statement that he’ll play in the NFL in 2012.
