Harrison interested in Atlanta
Adam Caplan of Scout.com reports that New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison is a possibility to land in Atlanta this off-season.
Harrison is an unrestricted free agent this off-season. Per Caplan, a source close to Harrison indicates that two potential destinations for Harrison are the Falcons and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Harrison lives in the Atlanta area, making teams in the NFC South attractive.
Harrison only appeared in 6 games this year before tearing a quadriceps muscle that ended his season. Previously expected to retire, there have been indications that Harrison intends to play a bit longer. Harrison, 36, is a 2-time Pro Bowler that has been a major contributor and leader in the Patriots secondary since 2003.
The Falcons interest in Harrison however has not been indicated. Current strong safety, Lawyer Milloy is also an unrestricted free agent and himself is 35 years old. The team has a decision to make whether to bring back the veteran safety who was named one of the team’s two defensive captains after the season. Milloy finished this past season with 92 tackles and 1 interception.
