It’s no secret that Packer Nation was rightfully upset when the Green Bay Packers released star CB Al Harris last season. He was one of the good guys..the gifted athlete with the morals and character that epitomize the way we expect Packers players to act.
Al Harris was openly disappointed with the decision by management to be released to free agency. He wanted to retire as a Packer. And we wanted him to stay. But the universe doesn’t always abide by our hopes and wishes and Al went on to sign with the Miami Dolphins. Even then, Al took out a full page ad thanking the Packer Nation for treating him as family and professed his love for the Packers and fans forever.
Well, this week, the universe has obliged this most gracious man. The Green Bay Packers GM has announced that Al Harris will also receive a Super Bowl XLV ring! This news literally brought tears to my eyes.
It’s people like Al Harris that have given the Green Bay Packers the reputation of honorable and upstanding men.
Great move by the management team. Congratulations Al Harris, you are always a Packer to us!
