Despite Being Released; Al Harris Will Get a Super Bowl Ring

Kareem Copeland of the Green Bay Press Gazette reports at the Eau Claire County Expo Center, Packers president Mark Murphy said former cornerback Al Harris will receive a Super Bowl ring despite being released in November.

Harris was in the midst of an attempt to return to the field from a season-ending left knee injury from November 2009. He began the 2010 season on the physically unable to perform list and returned to practice in October. The team however elected to release Harris as undrafted rookie Sam Shields flourished as the No. 3 corner behind Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams.

Harris was signed by the Dolphins in November but was back on injured reserve in December.

Harris spent eight seasons with the Packers, including 2010. He started every game from 2003-07 before injuries took him off the field in 2008 and 2009. He was a Pro Bowler in 2007 and 2008.

    good, one of the best CB’s ive ever seen play the game he did it the right way he actually played the CB like it was a defensive postition not like these pussies now a days like derel revis who get gloated upon for being great bump and run CB’s even tho they have never seen a tackle they’ve liked

    but matt u did him a huge injustice by just saying he missed 08 yea he had his spleen removed (an injury which i garantee there isnt another player in the NFL that would have came back from in the same season) but he came back about 4-5 weeks later then proceeded to NOT ALOW A SINGLE RECEPTION for 5 straight weeks maybe it was even 6 dude was absolutly one of the toughest S.O.B.s to ever play the game of football, never whinned about shit beat up his WR every snap made huge plays. and the guy never got talked about as a great CB…but all he did was be great, let me know when Revis or any other CB for that matter goes 6 weeks without allowing a single reception. dude should get his ring, and should eventually go to the H O F he was never the fastest never the strongest or the biggest but ALWAYS ona the best n2m had more class than about 97% of the league combined
