Mehta’s source said: “It’s a no-brainer.”
Even though the Bills are likely to be among the top suitors for Harris, Mehta still expects the Jets try to re-sign Harris in the coming days.
The Bills were expected to have interest in Harris even before Alonso was trade. However, they’re now left with a whole to fill at linebacker, which could lead to Buffalo making a push for Harris.
Cimini added that this could force the Jets to offer Harris even more in terms of salary, as they can’t afford to lose him in free agency.
For what it’s worth, the Dolphins, Falcons, and Bears have also come up as potential landing spots for Harris.
Harris, 31, finished out his four-year contract worth $36 million, which included $29.5 million guaranteed.
In 2014, Harris recorded 124 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles over the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has Harris rated as the No. 29 inside linebacker out of 60 qualifying players.
