Harris, who was acquired by Green Bay from Philadelphia in a March 2003 trade, started all 102 games he played in for the Packers over seven seasons. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2007 and 2008, and earned second-team All-Pro honors from The Associated Press in 2007.

Harris set the Packers’ single-season record for passes defensed (tracked since 1982) with 28 in 2004, and posted 14 interceptions and 108 passes defensed during his time in Green Bay. He missed the first four games of his career in 2008 (lacerated spleen) after playing in 175 consecutive contests (163 in the regular season, 12 in the postseason). Harris also played five seasons with Philadelphia (1998-2002), one with Miami (2010) and one with St. Louis (2011).
