Breaking News: Lions Trade Ronald Curry For Orien Harris

Ian KirkseyContributor IJuly 22, 2009

OK, so maybe it's not "breaking" news but it is something to talk about during this dry spell leading into training camp.

Orien Harris has been an journey man since being drafted out of Miami (FL) in the fourth round after a promising career that prompted many to compare him to a young Warren Sapp.

This could be a great move for the Lions who gave up Ronald Curry in the trade. Ronald Curry was likely going to be beat out by Dennis Northcutt for the slot receiver position anyway.

Personally, I love the move.  Orien will add competition and depth to the Lions weakest position.  If he comes to camp in good shape, he could even push for a starting role. Let's hope Orien Harris can live up to the hype that surrounded him coming out of college.
