Dolphins Sign First-Round DE Charles Harris

The Miami Dolphins have signed first-round DE Charles Harris to a four-year rookie contract, according to Joe Schad.

According to OverTheCap.com, Harris will receive a four-year contract worth $10,843,976, which includes a signing bonus of $6,026,528. The contract also has a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2020.

Harris, 22, was selected with the No. 22 overall pick by the Dolphins in this year’s draft. Miami was clearly in the market to add a pass rusher and they must have been ecstatic to see Harris fall to them in the second half of the first-round.

Harris  is a two-time second team All-SEC player for the 2015 and 2016 seasons. Over the course of his three-year college career it Missouri, he recorded 136 total tackles, 18 sacks, 34.5 tackles for loss, five pass defenses, one fumble recovery and five forced fumbles.
