Cornerback Al Harris was selected in the sixth round of the 1997 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M-Kingsville by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and after spending his first season on the practice squad, played the next five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2003, the Green Bay Packers acquired Harris in a trade, and he spent the next eight seasons in Green Bay, racking up 14 interceptions and 108 passes defensed. He earned back-to-back Pro Bowl selections in 2007-08 after receiving alternate recognition the previous three years. Known as an intense man-to-man specialist, Harris earned a reputation for shutting down opposing team’s top wideouts with his physical play at the line of scrimmage. A dedicated, durable player, he started 83 straight regular-season games from 2003-08. In one of Harris’ most memorable moments as a Packer, he returned an interception 52 yards for a game-winning touchdown in overtime against Seattle in an NFC Wild Card contest on Jan. 4, 2004. The next season, he broke the Packers’ single-season record (since 1982) for passes defensed with 28 in 2004. During the latter years of his Packers career, he formed one of the most dynamic and experienced cornerback tandems in the league along with Charles Woodson. Harris spent time with the Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams during the last two years of his playing career before officially retiring as a Green Bay Packer in 2013.
