Thu, 01 Aug 2013 16:57:43 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals LB James Harrison is exceeding expectations as he transitions from an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense to Cincinnati's 4-3 defense.

The coverage part was what I was a little worried about. But he's doing things really well. We'll find a lot of ways to use him in all kinds of different packages," defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer said.

Steelers | Larry Foote doesn't think Jarvis Jones will start

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 09:58:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Larry Foote thinks OLB Jason Worilds, not rookie Jarvis Jones, will start in place of James Harrison, who left via free agency. "It's going to be difficult [for Jones to start immediately]," Foote said. "There is so much technique, [knowing] where to line up, inside or outside." Foote said, however, that at least Jones played in a 3-4 as a Georgia Bulldog.

Fantasy Tip: Jones could make fantasy noise in the second half of sack-friendly IDP formats, though, so don't write him off as a late-rounds gamble.

Bengals | James Harrison says moving to 4-3 not a big deal

Wed, 29 May 2013 13:48:09 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals LB James Harrison said he does not see moving to a 4-3 defensive alignment will be a big change because he will be doing basically the same thing he did in the 3-4 defensive alignment. "I'm playing SAM, so I'm basically doing the same thing I do in a 3-4 defense. It's just that I'll switch where I'm lining up. I'll be in a 40 or 30, stacked behind a tackle or guard or whatever it may be. And I'll do my job from there," Harrison said. He said he still needs to learn the terminology because some of it is similar to what he used with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Just a little different in terminology and sight lines."
