Harris, 27, originally signed on with the Jaguars as an signed undrafted free agent free agent out of Troy back in 2011. He was later claimed off of waivers by the Steelers before catching  on with the Packers in October of 2012.

After a few years in Green Bay, Harris has had brief stints with the Vikings and Saints before joining the Seahawks’ practice squad a few weeks ago.

In 2014, Harris appeared in 15 games and ran for 64 yards on 16 carries (4 YPC) to go along with one reception for 17 yards receiving. He was contributed 456 kick return yards for Green Bay.
