Al Harris Retires a Packer, Discusses Coaching and Woodson

Yes, I know this isn't Al Harris, but it's the best I could do. - Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

As has been popular in recent years, Al Harris signed a one-day deal to retire as a member of the Packers.

We mentioned it briefly in Cheese Curds this morning, but it's worth discussing again. Former Packer cornerback Al Harris, who started in Green Bay from 2003 to 2009, intends to sign a one-day contract with the team to retire as a member of the Packers. Harris met with reporters this afternoon to discuss his career in Green Bay and one of his former teammates.

Harris also discussed his interest in coaching, as he was hired on as an assistant secondary coach by the Kansas City Chiefs this offseason.

Finally, Harris brought up his old partner in the Packers' secondary, and he believes that the veteran can still play in the NFL at this point in his career.

Harris was one of my favorite Packers of the past decade, and his pick-six against the Seahawks in the playoffs remains one of my favorite single plays in Packers history. Even since it is just a symbolic gesture by Harris and the team to allow him to retire as a Packer, it is still great to see a fan favorite honored in this way. Hopefully all Packers fans will wish the best of luck to Harris as he begins his coaching career, and I for one would welcome him back to Green Bay in a coaching role in the future.
