Harris signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Thursday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Harris failed to latch on with a team during the 2019 regular season. He spent the preseason in New England before parting ways with an injury settlement, but he'll now get a chance to showcase with the Saints. The 27-year-old wideout spent the first three seasons of his career in Washington.
Harris has a workout with the Saints on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The 27-year-old was let go by the Patriots with an injury settlement late in the preseason and has been unable to latch on with a new team during the regular season. Harris spent the first three seasons of his career in Washington and had 28 receptions for 304 yards over 12 games in 2018.
Harris worked out for the Lions on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Harris' workout Tuesday is good news because it means he's clear of the foot injury that led to his Aug. 27 release from the Patriots. The 26-year-old spent his first three seasons in the league with the Redskins, logging 40 catches for 432 yards and a touchdown over 28 games.
The Patriots have waived Harris (lower leg) from IR with an injury settlement, Field Yates of ESPN reports. As a result, once Harris is healthy he'll be free to sign with another team. The wideout looked like he may push for a role in the Patriots' offense this season, but his injury, combined with the return to the field of Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) led to Harris being the odd man out in the team's wideout corps.
Harris (lower leg) cleared waivers Monday and reverted to New England's injured reserve, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports. Harris reportedly has a chance of recovering from his lower leg injury within a matter of weeks, according to Nick Underhill of The Athletic. If Harris is indeed able to get healthy before the end of the 2019 season, Kyed reports that the Patriots likely will release him with an injury settlement.
