Harris didn't see much action this season despite being the second tight end behind Travis Kelce. He did finally collect his first career touchdown in Week 17 against the Raiders, and the
Demetrius Harris agreed to a three-year extension with the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday, NFL.com reports.
The backup tight end can earn up to $6.3 million over the course of the deal. Harris was targeted a mere 12 times during the regular, catching seven passes for 74 yards and a touchdown while playing behind Travis Kelce. He is already a good blocker, and there is hope the 24-year-old can become a more well-rounded player if he can tap more into his raw abilities.
Harris showed some promise as the 2014 season wore on, but an injury sidelined him for much of the second half of the season. Even though he's healthy, the third-year tight end has seen little production offensively while his top competition for snaps in James O'Shaughnessy caught two balls for 54 yards Thursday. While he still outsnapped the rookie 23 to 14, a change could be around the corner if he can't begin impacting the game.
