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.

Great joke and when the doctor comes into the waiting room or while you have a visit with him and they tell you that you or someone in your family has cancer let me know how you feel... Until that day shut your mouth up PRICK!

I am not surprised that the idiot on this thread trashing a man with a brain tumor is a Boston sports fan. ARM&hammer you are a low life piece of trash and just like the Redsox you should be ashamed of yourself.

Congrats to the doctors who found this, its a blessing in disguise. I lost my wife to cancer this summer and it was as painful as you could ever imagine. I know I am still grieving so consider the ramifications to Jerome Harrison this can and will be treated and he can live a normal ling life. Big deal the trade will never happen between the Lions and Eagles but a mans life has most likely been saved.

Horrible news, wonder if it's malignant or benign, not totally clear from the article. It's really pathetic that some people on here feel the need to make negative comments about someone who has a brain tumor. I guess any kind of attention is good attention to them. If they weren't doing that that they'd be starring in a bukkake film (if anyone would hire them).
