  • Maurice Harris: Sent away by Saints

    The Saints released Harris on Sunday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    In his three-year stint with Washington to start his career, Harris combined for a 40-432-1 line on 65 targets across 28 games. He wasn't tendered by the team in March 2019 and subsequently spent the offseason with the Patriots, but a lower leg injury resulted in his release before the season. He proceeded to see no NFL action last year before signing a reserve/future contract with the Saints in January. Harris will look for employment elsewhere following Sunday's move.

  • Saints' Maurice Harris: Inks reserve/future deal

    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.

  • Maurice Harris: Works out in New Orleans

    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.

  • Maurice Harris: Works out for Lions

    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.

  • Maurice Harris: Released with injury settlement

    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.

  • Patriots' Maurice Harris: Placed on IR

    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.

  • Maurice Harris: Set loose by Patriots

    Harris (lower leg) was waived/injured by the Patriots on Sunday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    During joint practices with the Titans prior to a preseason Week 2 matchup, Harris picked up a lower-leg injury of unknown nature and severity, missing the Patriots' second and third exhibitions as a result. His drive for a roster spot was hindered further with fellow wide receivers Julian Edelman (NFI), Josh Gordon (NFI) and Demaryius Thomas (Achilles, PUP) all returning to practice in the past week. If he passes through waivers unclaimed, Harris is destined to land on injured reserve.

  • Patriots' Maurice Harris: Misses Thursday's game

    Harris (lower leg) didn't play in Thursday's preseason game against the Panthers, Nick O'Malley of Masslive.com reports.

    Harris had his moments early on in training camp, but his injury, as well as the return to the field of Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) have combined to dampen the notion that he could be an early-season fantasy sleeper. Additionally, Harris is not a roster lock at this point, with N'Keal Harry also on hand and both Phillip Dorsett and Jakobi Meyers making strong cases to secure spots.

  • Patriots' Maurice Harris: Returns in some capacity

    Harris (lower leg) was present for Tuesday's practice, Nick Underhill of The Athletic reports.

    It remains unknown whether Harris was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice. The 26-year-old wideout is working his way back from a lower-leg injury. Harris was making a strong case for a spot on the 53-man roster before being sidelined and will look to continue competing for a role when healthy.

  • Patriots' Maurice Harris: Lower-leg issue

    Harris is dealing with a lower-leg injury, Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Per the report, Harris' issue could sideline him "a while," a development that might help undrafted free agent Jakobi Meyers carve out of spot on the Patriots' 53-man roster to start the coming season.

  • Patriots' Maurice Harris: Picks up injury

    Harris left Wednesday's practice early due to an apparent injury, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.

    The nature and severity of Harris' injury hasn't been revealed. Phillip Dorsett (undisclosed) also departed Tuesday's practice early, leaving a plethora of reps available for depth wideouts Dontrelle Inman, Jakobi Meyers and Braxton Berrios. Harris has impressed in training camp thus far and is competing for a role in the Patriots' receiving corps.

  • Patriots' Maurice Harris: Missing practice

    Harris (undisclosed) isn't present for practice Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.comreports.

    With N'Keal Harry (leg) and Phillip Dorsett (thumb) also injured, the Patriots may be shorthanded at wide receiver for Saturday's preseason game at Tennessee. Harris was making a strong case for a roster spot prior to suffering the undisclosed injury during Wednesday's practice.

  • Patriots' Maurice Harris: Finds paydirt in preseason opener

    Harris caught three of five targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 31-3 preseason opening win over the Lions.

    Harris opened the scoring with a 14-yard touchdown catch from Brian Hoyer. The former Redskins wideout has just one career regular-season touchdown in three NFL campaigns and has never eclipsed 304 receiving yards in a season, but he's making a case to earn significant playing time in a wide open competition on the outside. This performance was another step in the right direction.

  • Patriots' Maurice Harris: Looking good in camp

    Harris has been a training camp standout thus far, Trevor Hass of the Boston Globe reports.

    Meanwhile, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com notes Harris and QB Tom Brady are "developing a bit of a rapport." Beyond entrenched slot ace Julian Edelman (thumb) and 2019 first-rounder N'Keal Harry, there's not a ton of certainty with regard to how the Patriots' wideout corps will shake out, and Harris is making a case for a role in the team's offense to start the coming season. To that end, Harris' main competition for slotting comes in the form of returnee Phillip Dorsett and fellow newcomer Dontrelle Inman. Down the road, Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) could also factor in, when healthy, as could Josh Gordon, if he's eventually reinstated from his suspension. Though Harris isn't a burner, at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, he has good size and is viewed as a solid route runner with good hands. That's a combo that could lead to favorable results in 2019, if the 26-year-old's on-field chemistry with Brady continues to grow.

  • Patriots' Maurice Harris: Making case for roster spot

    Harris looked good throughout OTAs and minicamp, Jeff Howe and Nick Underhill of The Athletic report.

    Howe and Underhill both put Harris on their way-too-early projection for the 53-man roster, while Dontrelle Inman is left off and Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) is projected for the PUP list. The contracts hint at a slightly different picture, with Inman receiving $300,000 guaranteed and Harris getting just $90,000. The Patriots have a host of wide receivers competing for one or two spots behind Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry, Phillip Dorsett and special teamer Matthew Slater. An impressive spring won't mean much if Harris fails to maintain his momentum into training camp and the preseason.
