Former NFL cornerback Al Harris played seven seasons (2003-09) with the Green Bay Packers. Hours ago he informed the Packers of his decision to retire with the Packers. The Al Harris announcement was made by Ted Thompson, Executive V.P. and GM.
Al Harris, who was acquired by Green Bay from Philadelphia in a trade last month, started 102 games for the Packers in seven seasons. He was named to the Pro Bowl in ’07 and ’08, (I know NOBODY watches the Pro Bowl, but getting named to it is important for NFL players) and second-team All-Pro in ’07.
Al Harris set the Packers’ single-season record for passes defensed (or pass breaks, or PBUs they’re sometimes called, a newer stat first tracked in 1982) with 28 in 2004. Al Harris grabbed 14 interceptions and 108 PBUs during his time with the Packers. Al Harris also played five seasons with Philadelphia (1998-2002), one with Miami (2010) and one with the St. Louis Rams.Follow paulmbanks
