Will Rodney Harrison announce retirement tomorrow?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
South Suburban Chicago native Rodney Harrison is expected to announce tomorrow whether he plans to continue playing in the NFL, but it looks as though he's ready to retire.

The 1991 Marian Catholic grad, twice voted by his peers as the dirtiest player in the NFL, has not attended any of the Patriots' OTAs this summer. Further, Mike Reiss, who blogs about the Patriots for Boston.com, is reporting that NBC Sports Chairman Dick Ebersol will make an NFL talent announcement tomorrow at noon.

The two-time Pro Bowler missed the last 10 games of the 2008 season with a torn quad, making it his fourth season in a row with a serious injury.

If he does announce retirement, Harrison could find himself spending plenty of time in front of the camera this season. The Boston Globe reports today that "he has retained the services of Maxx Sports & Entertainment to represent him for broadcasting opportunities."

Last year, he shared his expertise with the NFL Network and NBC during its Super Bowl coverage.
