According to multiple reports, the Jets have re-signed veteran ILB David Harris to a three-year contract worth $21 million.
- The contract includes $15 million fully guaranteed over the first two years of the agreement.
It’s really surprising to see the Jets get this deal before the start of free agency as many expected Harris to be one of the most sought after linebackers in the coming days.
In fact, reports had said that the Bills were prepared to make a serious run at signing Harris to a contract now that they’ve hired Rex Ryan and traded Kiko Alonso.
However, the Bills will need to look for a linebacker elsewhere in the coming weeks.
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.
We had Harris listed as the No. 42 player in our Top 100 NFL Free Agent List.
