BBAO: Al Harris will get SB ring

By Kevin Seifert

We're Black and Blue All Over:

Many of you have asked if Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris, who was released midway through last season, would receive a Super Bowl ring. The answer, according to president/CEO Mark Murphy, is yes.

During a Tailgate Tour on Thursday, a fan asked Murphy directly. (Citizen journalism!) According to Kareem Copeland of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Murphy said yes. He also added that the team has tentatively scheduled a June 16 ceremony to give out rings. That could change, obviously, based on the lockout.

Harris suffered a severe knee injury in November 2009 and opened the 2010 season on the physically unable to perform list. He practiced with the Packers for three weeks before the team decided to release him Nov. 8 rather than add him to the active roster. He eventually signed with the Miami Dolphins, where he played three games before a hamstring injury sidelined him for the season.
