Harris played 197 snaps last year (19.80% of total defensive plays) while stepping in for an injured teammate. Fans will remember when he punched the ball out of a receiver’s hands at the goal line and recovered the ball against the Rams last year, showcasing his big-play potential.
Special teams are also a spot where Harris shines. He was a part of 304 special teams snaps last year, making him one of the key contributors to that unit and adding even more value to a depth player.
If not for the immense talent of Sendejo and Smith, Harris would be a starter in Minnesota. However, for now, he is doing a great job of doing whatever is asked of him by the team until another opportunity arises for him.
