Source: James Harrison visiting Cardinals today

Veteran outside linebacker James Harrison is on his way to visit the Arizona Cardinals today, according to a league source.

The former NFL Defensive Player of the Year had two sacks last season for the Cincinnati Bengals as he played in all but one game. Harrison, 36, had 40 tackles, one interception and a forced fumble last season.

The former Pittsburgh Steelers standout was released by the Bengals in March.

Harrison was due a $1.1 million base salary and could have made another $250,000 divided up through per-game active roster bonuses.

He's a five-time Pro Bowl selection.

For his career, Harrison has 647 tackles, 66 sacks, 29 forced fumbles and six interceptions.

He was released by the Steeler prior to last season following a contract dispute.
