St. Louis Rams CB Al Harris Says He's Retiring

Longtime NFL cornerback Al Harris has decided to call it quits after 13 seasons with the Packers, Eagles, Dolphins and Rams.

After 13 seasons and nearly 200 games, longtime cornerback Al Harris told Ron Clements of CBS Sports that he's "played his last play" and will retire from the NFL. Harris, who has spent this season with the St. Louis Rams after spending time with the Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins, added that he plans on coaching now that he's done playing.

Even at age 37, Harris was good enough to make five starts for St. Louis this season. Appearing in nine games overall, Harris made 12 tackles, defended seven passes and recovered a fumble. With a member of the Green Bay Packers, Harris made the Pro Bowl in 2007 and 2008 before injuries began to take a toll. He hasn't played 16 games in a season since 2007, and has appeared in just 22 games since the beginning of 2009.

Harris finishes his career with 194 games, including 128 starts, under his belt. He made 424 tackles and intercepted 21 passes, returning three of those picks for touchdowns.
