Report: Jerome Harrison has brain tumor

The Jerome Harrison-Ronnie Brown trade that was voided Wednesday between the Lions and the Eagles was thwarted by a brain tumor found in Harrison during a routine physical.

That’s the report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who writes, “Without trade, Jerome Harrison doesn't get physical. Without physical, doctors don't find brain tumor. Trade might have saved his life.”

Now, the disappointment some might have felt when the trade fell through Wednesday has to be tempered by the fortuitous discovery made by the Eagles doctors.

Well, well... in the time it took me to post that last comment I see that all the idiotic comments have been deleted.  Sweet.

And to real Philly fans, relax... I don't assume all of y'all are crazy just because of a random nutcase here 'n there.

Morons like B Bloody Kotex (vile, by the way) are the reason why I have to defend myself as a Philadelphia sports fan on a daily basis. The disrespect and idiocy displayed on this message board give your city, your team, and its fans a bad reputation. Think before you post, clown. Or maybe we should just stick to the first step.

Regardless, I hope Jerome is getting the treatment he needs and that this all plays out in a positive way for him and his family.

This story gives me chills.  How sad, Jerome could have died and this trade saved his life.  Talk about a great transaction!  Hope he is ok and able to live a good life.  As for football, no idea if he can play again, but I would think he could care less about that right now.  Good well, Jerome.

Wow.  I still can't believe this.  I hope Jerome is taken care of and lives a long and healthy life.  With any luck at all, this trade might have saved his life... I hope and pray it did.  Look at what had to happen to find out he has a brain tumour.  Best got a concussion, and the Lions made a trade right away.  If Best doesn't get hurt and if the Eagles say no to the trade, Harrison would be in a lot more trouble then he is right now. 

I wish him all the luck in the world right now.... hopefully a year from now he's healthy and playing football again.

Wow.  B Bloody Kotex is a tough guy isn't he?  One of those punks hiding in mommy's basement wishing death on people because he's too afraid to do anything in his life.

Maybe B Bloody should take 1 minute out of his inconsiderate douchebag life and contemplate how his life would be changed i he received a similar diagnosis. I wish Harrison the best as I'm sure his world has changed dramatically, even beyond trades/football. Remeber this B Bloody....karma can be a b1tch
