Default One day after signing him, Pats cut DT Marcus Harrison

One day later, Marcus Harrison cut by Pats

The Patriots signed defensive lineman Marcus Harrison on Friday. On Saturday, the Pats bid Harrison farewell.

Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com reports that the Pats have cut Harrison and elevated cornerback Sterling Moore from the practice squad. When signing Harrison, the Pats cut cornerback Phillip Adams.

As Reiss points out, the decision to dump Harrison suggests that one or both of the teams defensive tackles listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys — Albert Haynesworth (back) and Kyle Love (back) — will be able to play.

Harrison, a third-round pick of the Bears in 2008, will now pass through waivers. If unclaimed, he’ll become an unrestricted free agent.

Marcus Harrison

Height: 6-3 Weight: 316 Age: 27

Born: 7/10/1984 Little Rock , AR

From the NationFootballPost in September:

Quote:
A fresh start for Marcus Harrison with the Carolina Panthers wonít materialize.

The Panthers claimed him off waivers from the Chicago Bears, but Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reported via Twitter that Harrison failed his physical.

An NFL source says the Panthers rejected Harrison because of a knee issue. He failed his physical and missed the first five practices in training camp with the Bears because he was out of shape. Harrison, a third-round pick in 2008, now has to wonder where he will land. The Cleveland Browns also placed a claim for Harrison.

Harrison had knee issues when he came out of school at Arkansas. Just because he failed the Panthersí physical doesnít mean there isnít a team out there that will not pass him. Harrison could consider pursuing the Bears for cutting him while he was injured, but he didnít miss much in the way of practice once he got into shape.

A 2008 3rd round draft pick that comes into training camp out of shape sound like he's got motivational and/or injury issues and we don't need either of those.
