Having the league’s worst record has its advantages, including top waiver priority. The Cardinals were able to snag Harrison ahead of the other 30 potential competitors, and there were surely multiple teams hoping to land the 25-year-old.
Harrison, 25, opened the 2018 season as the starter at left tackle before Greg Robinson took over in the second half of the season. This year, Harrison was expected to be a key sub in Cleveland and that will probably be his floor in Arizona.
The Browns reportedly released Harrison due to chronic lateness and outright no-shows for team appointments, but the Cardinals are willing to roll the dice to see what he can bring to the table.
