Rams add Al Harris

Veteran cornerback Al Harris is 36 years old, but he’s not done playing yet.

Harris has reached a deal with the St. Louis Rams, Jim Thomas of the Post-Dispatch is reporting.

Harris started the 2010 regular season on the Packers’ physically unable to perform list as he recovered from a 2009 knee injury. The Packers eventually cut him and he played in three games for the Dolphins.

After originally entering the league as a sixth-round draft pick of the Buccaneers in 1997, Harris played for the Eagles from 1998 to 2002 and the Packers from 2003 to 2009.

    It’s an improvement over Quincy Butler.

    Head -scratcher for me. And trbowman, that’s not saying much.

    I thought Billy D only wanted to sign “ascending” players ie guys who are young and on the way up, not on their way out of the league.

    good pickup as a nickel or dime back (which looks like the plan).

    Maybe one good year left, if even that?

    Good pickup for the Rams. Every team needs a CB that looks like a Predator.

    Al is a gamer. Whatever he has left, he’ll give to the Rams.

  12. dramah says: Jul 29, 2011 11:36 PM

    Al is a class act. He always gives 110%. I hope he can finish his career strong.

    Al has nothing left. Even before the ACL injury he had a tough time covering big receivers (think Plaxico in the 2007 NFC championship game). I am happy for Al – that he found a team to play for, but Rams will soon regret this move.

    We want the ball and we’re going to score!

    One of my favorite players ever. Not sure if he’ll make it out of camp, but I’m glad he’s still giving it a shot. If there’s anyone that can come back strong enough at his age from his injury, it’s Al Harris. Dude is a workout freak.

    Don’t worry rams fans. Al iis up there in age but he has a lot if heart, he’s healthy and he can mentor you young corners. solid guy.

  17. johnnyb216 says: Jul 30, 2011 1:09 AM

    You won’t find a harder worker than Al. solid player. Glad the packers have him a ring. He deserved it as much as anyone.

  18. gbfanforever says: Jul 30, 2011 8:17 AM

    He was tough, solid player and great competitor but his career started to end 4 years ago in the playoff loss to the giants and then the two bad knee injuries. I’m surprised he can still walk much less run. I’ll be surprised if he makes the Rams roster.

    Like every other Hawks fan, I have vivid and horrifying flashbacks to Harris’s interception.

    But now we have a receiving core with an average height of 7’8″ who actually can run the routes they’re supposed to instead of just sprinting blindly down the field.

    So Hasselbeck won’t be fazed by this at all…

    wait…

    oh.
    :(
