NFL: Cincinnati Bengals Linebacker James Harrison is a 'Massage Whore'

You have never met a real massage enthusiast until you've rubbed elbows with Cincinnati Bengals linebacker James Harrison.

The truth is out: Cincinnati Bengals linebacker James Harrison is a self-confessed "massage whore."

Harrison revealed this side of his personality after he said he spends between $400,000 to $600,000 yearly on what he labeled as "body work."

NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk captured Harrison's word-for-word description:

"I've always been what everybody'd like to call - excuse my English - is 'massage whore.' I can't think of nothing else. They done called me it so long I'm starting to believe it."

The official NFL website reports the nickname originated during his days with the Pittsburgh Steelers. This was when his teammates discovered he receives massage treatments every two to four hours almost daily. Harrison even went on to say he audition 150 massage specialists before whittling the field down to what he currently has. 

Harrison, the 2008 NFL Defensive MVP, also has a reputation of tweeting and posting his accupuncture sessions. Here is one of them. 

Dom Consentino of the website Dead Spin also gives the casual NFL fan a glimpse into Harrison's very expensive lifestyle:

"As far as training, I have a hyperbaric chamber. I rent a hyperbaric chamber when I'm in Arizona. I have massages and I bring people in from New York, Arizona to where I'm at. There's that cost. Like I said, I get body work almost every single day except Saturday and Sunday. I have a homeopathic doctor and I do a lot of homeopathic things. It's just a lot, supplements, so on and so forth."

Harrison began his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2002. He had a brief stint with the Rhein Fire of NFL Europe and the Baltimore Ravens before returning to the  Steelers where he played until 2012. He earned two Super Bowl rings with the team (Super Bowls XL and XLIII).

During his days with the Steelers, he was best known for picking off the Arizona Cardinals' Kurt Warner prior to halftime of Super Bowl XLIII and returning it for a 100-yard touchdown.

After getting cut by Pittsburgh on March 9, Harrison signed with the rival Cincinnati Bengals on April 23.
