Harris Gets Early Valentine from Packers

The Packers showed some love today, getting a jump on Valentine's Day. They gave corner back Al Harris a reported two-year $4.5 million deal loaded with Pro Bowl incentives. Now Harris might feel a bit more inclined to participate in those practices and team activities he decided to pass on last year.

Harris has been the Pack's best defensive back for the last few years, always drawing the opponent's top receiver. While Charles Woodson grabbed more interceptions this year, that may have been at least partially the result of teams throwing away from Harris.

Harris is one of those players who, while now 32, still comes to play. The incentive-laden contract may help ensure that happens for the next few years.
