The Packers released veteran cornerback Al Harris on Monday. Harris had been on the physically unable to perform list following offseason knee surgery and has not played in 2010.

Harris was taken off the PUP list following Week Six, but lingering health issues and the impressive play of his replacement, Tramon Williams, has left him without a role for the 6-3 Packers. Rookie nickel back Sam Shields has also played well in Harris' absence.

Green Bay general manager Ted Thompson released a statement on the move: "We want to thank Al for his contributions to the Green Bay Packers. His hard work, dedication and professionalism have been the keys to his success. During his time here he has been a valuable member of our organization and our community. We wish him the very best in the future and he will always be a part of the Packer family."

The way we see it

Veteran secondary help is hard to find, so Harris won't be on the free-agent market long. The division-rival Vikings, who have been hurt by injuries at the CB position, might even be a landing spot. It is unknown how healthy Harris is following the knee operation.
