Cardinals releases Desmond Harrison after arrest warrant issued
The Arizona Cardinals signed Desmond Harrison earlier this offseason after the Cleveland Browns waived him. Now, the Cardinals are releasing the offensive tackle just a month after the team claimed him.
According to reports, Harrison is being released by the Cardinals after an arrest warrant was issued for the offensive tackle. Harrison has an arrest warrant issued in North Carolina for apparently strangling and assaulting a female.
A Greensboro police spokesperson said that an incident report came about earlier this week on Tuesday. Although, further details of the case were not given and the Cardinals have yet to make a statement on the matter.
Harrison played for the Browns in 2018 after being signed by the team as an undrafted free agent. As a rookie, Harrison started in eight games at left tackle for Cleveland.
Midway through the season, Harrison was replaced by Greg Robinson, and he wouldn’t start in another game in 2018. Earlier this offseason, the Browns cut Harrison after he missed a flight and a practice. Freddie Kitchens—head coach of the Browns—was the one who said he missed a flight.
“Missed a flight or something. I am not sure really,” Kitchens said. “I do not know. I have not got to the bottom of it yet. Missed a flight. I know he missed a flight. I do not know what time he got here so it is hard to tell how he got here.”
Now, we know there may have been more to that story. We also will need to get more details on Harrison’s current arrest warrant before any assumptions are made. For now, Harrison will become a free agent after being cut for the second time this offseason.
