Harris signed a two-year, $6.5 million contract with the Raiders on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The team originally assigned Harris an original-round tender worth just over $2 million, but the two sidesinstead were able to agree on the two-year pact. The 28-year-old had 49 tackles (36 solo) and two interceptions in 2018 after playing minimal defensive snaps over the previous two seasons.
The Raiders assigned Harris an original-round tender Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The tender is worth just over $2 million. Since Harris went undrafted to open his career, the Raiders won't receive anything in compensation should Harris sign with another team this offseason. The fourth-year safety set career highs across the board in 2018 (49 tackles, seven PDs and two interceptions) and could draw a degree of interest in the free-agent market.
Harris finished with seven tackles and an interception Monday in the Raiders' 27-14 win over the Broncos.
Harris is now up to two interceptions for the season, both of which have come in the last two contests. Though he's third on the depth chart at safety behind starters Karl Joseph and Marcus Gilchrist, Harris is still regularly featured in nickel packages, routinely affording him elevated snap counts. The 59 defensive snaps he logged Monday were Harris' most of the season.
Harris will start against the Colts on Sunday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Harris slots into Oakland's starting lineup in place of Reggie Nelson (coach's decision), and will suit up as the team's top free safety. If Harris is able to show well against the Colts on Sunday, the 28-year-old could earn an extended starting role.
Harris (finger) participated in Tuesday's practice, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Harris, who had surgery to repair a broken finger, was expected to be back at practice Monday but he took an extra day off and managed to make his timely return Tuesday.

Harris, who recently underwent surgery to repair his broken index finger, is expected to return to practice as early as Monday, NBC Sports Bay Area's Scott Bair reports.
Harris' return timetable has been reduced to a matter of days after he just broke his finger in Thursday's practice, though he may don a cast for Monday's upcoming training camp session. He could struggle to make the 53-man roster, so a timely return to practice is a much-needed development for Harris.

Harris will participate in the Saints' offseason conditioning program, reports ESPN's Mike Triplett. He is also expected to be a full-go in time for training camp after tearing his ACL this past October.
Harris, who spent the prior three years in the Canadian Football League, earned a roster spot with New Orleans last year but appeared in only four games, netting one tackle before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Even if Harris is able to return from injury at full strength, he will have to compete for a roster spot at a crowded safety position.
Harris (knee) was placed on IR on Thursday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Harris tore his ACL and meniscus on Monday and had surgery on Tuesday, making it unsurprising that he's been moved to IR. He'll be out for the remainder of the season. Brian Dixon was promoted to the active roster to replace Harris in the Saints' secondary.
Harris had surgery Tuesday for a torn ACL and meniscus that he suffered in Monday's practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Harris' injury is unfortunate, as it will likely cause him to miss the rest of the season. Harris' absence will hurt the Saints' depth in the defensive backfield as well as on special teams, where he had logged 99 snaps, the most on the team this season, prior to sustaining the injury.
