A trade saved his life

I would assume most players don’t want to be traded. So when Jerome Harrison was traded from the Detroit Lions to the Philadelphia Eagles (for Ronnie Brown) a couple of days ago, he probably wasn’t jumping up and down with happiness.

Going through the motions and getting his physical done by Eagles doctors, they found something abnormal. ESPN is reporting (according to two league sources) that the trade was officially nullified because doctors discovered a brain tumor.

Sources also say that the trade itself may have saved his life as Harrison may not have received a physical otherwise.

Scary stuff.
