Well, we now know why Jerome Harrison failed a physical administered by the Eagles earlier this week.
According to ESPN, Harrison has a brain tumor.
It’s a shocking story, one that hopefully has a happy ending for the one-time Eagle.
There’s no word on the extent of the tumor, or his long-term prognosis.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter raised the point that had the Eagles and Lions not tried to make a deal, the tumor may have gone undetected.
One can only hope that this goes down as the best non-trade in the history of professional sports.
