Veteran cornerback Chris Harris is back in the NFL.

The NFL’s transaction wire shows that the Saints signed Harris to their practice squad on Tuesday.

Harris spent the last two seasons with the Chargers, but has been out of the league since becoming a free agent at the start of the new league year. He played 14 games last season and finished the year with 37 tackles and an interception.

Harris spent his first nine seasons with the Broncos after entering the league as an undrafted free agent. He was a first-team All-Pro in 2016 and made four Pro Bowls while winning a Super Bowl title during his run in Denver.

  1. Doesn’t even scratch the surface toward making up for not securing Latavious Murray. I do wonder what idiot was responsible for not locking Murray in for the saints?

  2. For those not familiar with how game-day call-ups work: Murray was signed to the 53 man roster as a PS player on the day of the game; he automatically reverted back to PS at the end of the game, at which time he is free to sign with any team who offers him a spot on their 53. Local reporting has indicated that the Saints did, in fact, offer him a spot on the 53 after the game; however, it is ultimately Murray’s (and his agent’s) decision on who to stick with. There is simply a better opportunity for him in DEN, which he earned via his performance on Sunday. No one on the saints to blame, their hands were tied.
