Mangini Has a Sit Down with RB Jerome Harrison

The Plain Dealer reports about a sit down that RB Jerome Harrison had with coach Eric Mangini:

Browns running back Jerome Harrison has been a ghost of late, averaging four carries the next five games and then being inactive last week in Detroit. Harrison had a sit-down with Mangini this week and was in better spirits than a week ago, when he declined to speak for fear of “saying what I really think.” On Wednesday, Harrison said, “I know how I am when I’m sort of frustrated and angry. I will say things that I don’t mean and that’s not appropriate. And you all don’t understand, there’s life going on, football isn’t the only thing that we’re doing.” Of Mangini, he said, “I just had a real serious man-to-man conversation that needed to be had and we’re on the same page. Matter of fact, we were always on the same page, just different paragraphs. We got there.”

Harrison’s contract is up after this year and he believes his best football is ahead of him. “I’m a confident person. I know what God blessed me with and the talents He gave me,” he said. “Stuff like this happens all the time, history shows, like Priest Holmes. Ain’t nobody knew him right away. It took him, the list of great running backs who took a long time goes on. I’m sitting behind Jamal [Lewis], he’s a great running back. I take what I can and that’s what I have. When it’s time, it’ll happen.”
