Former CB Al Harris retires as a Packer, recalls 'special place to play'

Al Harris didn't know how a ceremonial retirement was supposed to work.

All that mattered to the Green Bay Packers two-time Pro Bowl cornerback was that he was able to say he retired as a Packer, which he did Thursday.

Harris, now an assistant coach with the Kansas City Chiefs, said he came up with the idea the day he announced his NFL retirement in December 2011, while playing for the St. Louis Rams. He spent 14 seasons in the NFL and was a fan favorite in Green Bay.
