The Detroit Lions are holding organizational team activities right now, and one of their latest acquisitions from Arkansas-Pine Bluff is in training.

The only problem is that he’s not training with the team yet.

Defensive back James Harrell signed with the Lions in time for the team’s minicamp two weekends ago, but when he arrived, he failed a physical and has not participated with the team since. He declined to say for the record why he failed the physical.

“It’s frustrating,” Harrell said Tuesday. “You play four different sports, and you get to that level — my dad played for Detroit — to actually follow my dad and play for the team he played for seven or eight years …”

But Harrell’s dream isn’t over by any means. He has a doctor’s appointment in June and is hoping to be cleared in time for Detroit’s minicamp that month.

Harrell, of Tampa Bay, Fla., is the fourth known UAPB player to sign with an NFL team as a free agent in the past two seasons, following Raymond Webber, Ibrahim Abdulai and Arthur Thomas last season. Webber, who tore his hamstring just before getting to play in Tampa Bay’s first preseason game last year, was released by the Buccaneers on May 2 and picked up by the Seattle Seahawks the next day.

“It’s great,” Webber said of the move. “It’s a blessing, if I must say myself.”

Harrell, whose father James Jr. played for Detroit from 1979-86 and for Kansas City in 1987, said he was excited about being picked up by the Lions. As a Golden Lion his senior season, Harrell III picked off five passes, leading UAPB.

“I was in my best shape,” he said. “I had been training since December. Since the (HBCU) All-Star Game, I had been training non-stop.”

But he’s working out now and expects to be cleared for minicamp.

The Seahawks took over Webber’s rookie contract from the Buccaneers, maybe a sign Seattle has plenty of faith in one of the Golden Lions’ best wide receivers in history.

“I’ve got an opportunity,” Webber said. “A lot of guys don’t get a chance in the NFL when you get out of one opportunity and get into another.”

But the 24 hours after he was released by Tampa Bay had Webber thinking about his future.

“All I was thinking about was that God had a plan for me,” the St. Louis native said. “Maybe He was humbling me. I was trying to keep my faith and keep my head on straight.”

He said the Bucs thought he had a good preseason camp before his injury during a drill in practice and he felt he would have made the 53-man game roster. He missed the rest of the season.

His hamstring is “getting there,” but not at 100 percent, he added.

“I won’t say I’m running like I was in pro day last year, but I can still run,” Webber said.
