Move Al Harris to Safety

There's a big mystery hovering over Ted Thompson's plans this off-season, and one of the biggest issues is at the secondary. The Packers can do a number of things to address the problem: sign free agents Bigby, Collins and Blackmon; Draft DB's in the first rounds; Draft 'em late; sign free agents from other teams ('though the pool is trimming).

But one option I have yet to encounter is moving Al Harris to the strong safety position alongside Nick Collins. Not only is Harris 35 years-old, he is coming off an ACL, so it's difficult to imagine him back at full speed and strength come training camp.

Al is arguably the Packers best tackler and run stopper among DB's, so you know he's well equipped to play strong safety. Meanwhile, Tramon Williams showed he is more than capable to be a starting CB in the NFL and has long years ahead of him as a top notch CB - so all that's left is to fill the depth chart with a couple of good rookies with plenty of upside. And of course, probably the most asked-for move - release Jarrett Bush!
