The Bengals are continuing to talk to free agent linebackers James Harrison and Karlos Dansby, and they want to get a deal done with one of them before the NFL draft opens on Thursday. Before the Bengals and linebacker James Harrison started talks on a new contract that appear to be heading nowhere fast, they had veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby in for a visit. Dansby started all 16 games for the Dolphins last season and is younger than Harrison. Some reports have indicated that the Bengals would prefer Dansby, but that Harrison will come cheaper. Dansby led the league with five pass-breakups when lined up as an inside linebacker last season. In any event, the Bengals want to know what they have at linebacker before the draft. The Bengals also have the option of finding a starter in the first round or second round .
