  • Harris agreed to a contract with the Bears on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Harris was cut by the Browns on Monday, but he needed little time to find a new home. The 28-year-old, who previously spent time with head coach Matt Nagy while in Kansas City, now joins a Chicago tight-end corps that struggled to find consistent health and production from Trey Burton (hip) and Adam Shaheen (foot) the past two seasons. Harris caught 15 passes for 149 yards and three touchdowns across 15 games in Cleveland in 2019.

  • The Browns cut Harris on Monday, the team's official website reports. Harris signed a two-year, $6 million contract last offseason, coming over from Kansas City after five seasons in a depth role behind Travis Kelce. The 28-year-old played 55.6 percent of offensive snaps for the Browns in 2019, but he was limited to a 15-149-3 receiving line on 27 targets, dropping five passes along the way. Harris may need to battle for a roster spot with his next team, while the Browns are left with David Njoku, Ricky Seals-Jones (RFA), Stephen Carlson and Pharaoh Brown (ERFA) at tight end.

  • Harris did not catch his only target in Sunday's 33-23 loss to the Bengals. Harris was once again the playing-time leader (36 snaps) among Cleveland's tight ends. The six-year veteran caught 15 passes for 149 yards and three touchdowns while playing a career-high snap count in 2019. The elevated snap count was largely due to David Njoku's wrist injury, as well as Njoku's subsequent residence in coach Freddie Kitchens' doghouse. Harris has one year remaining on the two-year deal he signed in March 2019, but his playing time next season will depend on the whims of a new head coach. Kitchens was deposed following the season-ending loss to Cincinnati, and presumably Njoku, the Browns' first-round draft pick in 2017, will be given a clean slate.

  • Harris caught one of three targets for one yard and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-15 loss to the Ravens in Week 16. The Browns made David Njoku inactive for the second straight week, leaving Harris and others to pick up the slack at tight end. Harris led the position group with 36 snaps while catching his third touchdown of the season. Whenever Njoku has been inactive, it's usually Harris leading the way in terms of playing time. Stephen Carlson (one catch, one target, seven yards) and Ricky Seals-Jones (two targets, one catch, 23 yards) each played 19 snaps.

  • Harris will draw the start at tight end Week 16 against Cincinnati after David Njoku was announced as a healthy scratch for the contest. Harris found himself in a similar situation in a friendly matchup last week against Arizona, where he logged 42 snaps but ended up with just one reception on two targets. In contrast, Ricky Seals-Jones caught two touchdown passes in less than half his snap total. While Harris is the starter on paper, it seems to be more due to his blocking prowess.
