Paul Harris Fulfills Destiny, Will Try Out At NFL Combine

When it comes to Paul Harris, I swear there's always been something in the universe working against him making it to the NBA.

Whether it's an injury or a personal matter or whatever, his pro basketball career always seemed to derail itself just as it was starting to get going.

Maybe it's because, ultimately, he was supposed to be a tight end in the National Football League.

Harris is going to attempt to prove correct the hundreds of Syracuse Orange fans who said over the years that Harris should have played football instead of basketball by trying to do just that.

Before you here it on the Internet I'm trying out for the NFL as a tight end I will be at the combine never played football in my life...

Harris went to add that "...if someone ask me what sport I play I would have to say football WOW I don't know if I can do it I LOVE BASKETBALL to much!!"

Harris was waived by the Maine Red Claws for the third time a few weeks back and I suppose it can't hurt for the 6'4", 193 pound.

How he ended up getting an invite to the NFL Combine, I suppose we'll find out. Maybe Paul is going to pull a Willie Mays Hayes and just show up. Regardless, I'm kinda excited to see what will happen.

Of course, if he ends up being a success, we'll curse him all over for not playing while at SU.
