Harris is set to add depth to a high-powered offense that features Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt (suspension), Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry and David Njoku. The 27-year-old will slot in behind Njoku on the Browns' tight end depth chart, on the heels of catching 12 passes for 164 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games with the Chiefs in 2018.
Harris plans to sign a two-year contract with the Browns, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Harris moves from one high-powered offense to another, joining Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt (suspension), Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry and David Njoku in Cleveland. The 27-year-old tight end appears to have settled for more money in a similar No. 2 role, as Njoku figures to top the depth chart for the foreseeable future. Harris isn't likely to offer much fantasy value in 2019 unless Njoku misses time with an injury.
The Chiefs leaned heavily on two-tight end formations in the loss, with Harris (26 offensive snaps) actually outpacing No. 3 receiver Chris Conley (24) in terms of usage. Though teammate Travis Kelce remains one of the best at his position in the NFL, the 6-foot-7 Harris retains some level of utility in fantasy leagues that start two tight ends due to his typically high snap counts for a backup player. Harris proved to be a quality secondary piece in a prolific passing attack during the regular season, nabbing 12 passes for 164 yards and a career-high three touchdowns.
Harris recorded just 12 catches for 164 yards and three touchdowns on 25 targets during 2018.
It's not a huge surprise that Harris didn't rack up much in terms of stats during 2018 given the team's numerous offensive weapons, but he did manage to haul in a career-high total for touchdown passes. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so there is no guarantee Harris' home games will come at Arrowhead Stadium next season.
Harris hauled in all three of his targets for 28 yards Sunday against the Ravens.
Harris's status was partially in question entering Sunday, but he was ultimately cleared to suit up. The second-string tight end proceeded to post his second straight multi-catch week after recording just one during the team's first 11 games. Harris remains on hand as the next man up at the position should starter Travis Kelce be sidelined for some reason.
