Green Bay in 2009? Yessir!

Al Harris will return to Green Bay for his sixth season.

The news became official last week when Packers GM Ted Thompson informed Harris that the Pack would pick up his $1.2 million roster bonus and play him in 2009.

Midway through the season, Al wondered aloud whether the Packers intended to bring him back, assuming they’d begin a youth movement and leaving the 34-year-old Harris looking for work.

But after Harris returned from a career-threatening speen injury and completed the season in a strong fashion, the Pack realized Al’s a young 34, and still has a lot to contribute to the franchise:

“This is a guy that I don’t see a lot of drop-off,” Thompson said. “He’s still a good player and we think he’s going to be a good player again this year. We’re not having a big youth movement.”

So the good news just continues to roll in for 3irty1. We’ll hit you guys with updates as spring approaches.

But for now, leave Al a note of support, knowing he’ll be a Packer again next season!

    I am so glad the Packers have you Mr. Al Harris for the 2009 season. I don’t want to see you in another uniform and I think you are one of the best corners in the league still. Good Luck this season!!!!

    Al, you’re our absolute favorite Packer. Such an odd combination of being an amazingly aggressive player on the field, yet so zen-like calm in interviews. It’s a trip. You are such an important face of the Packers. They’re lucky to have you.
