Al Harris retires as Packer

Al Harris left the Green Bay Packers after a knee injury in the Super Bowl season of 2010 but his heart never left Titletown.  Harris signed a one day contract with Green Bay so he could formally retire from the NFL as a member of the Packers.   Acquired by Mike Sherman in a 2002 trade with Philadelphia, Harris became a mainstay for the Packer secondary, playing over 100 games.  He made the Pro Bowl twice and his signature, press man coverage helped the Pack in the 2003 playoffs.  His pick six at Lambeau against Matt Hasselbeck and the Seattle Seahawks remains one of the most memorable plays in Packer history.   After signing with Miami for an injury plagued 2010 season, Harris finished his playing days the following year in St. Louis before yet another knee injury ended his career.  He's not done with football however, hooking up with Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs as an assistant defensive backs coach.
