Harris, 33, is a former sixth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2011. He spent four years in Dallas before signing a five-year, $17.5 million contract that included $7.1 million guaranteed with the Giants in 2015.
Harris was released by the Giants last year and later agreed to a one-year contract with the Raiders. Las Vegas brought Harris back last year before eventually placing him on injured reserve.
In 2019, Harris appeared in three games and caught one pass for seven yards receiving. He also totaled 149 kick return yards and another 20 punt return yards.
Smith, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Jets back in 2015. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $5.872 million rookie contract that includes $3.667 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2018 season when the Jets waived him with an injury designation.
Smith caught on with the Cowboys on a futures deal for 2019 and was limited to appearing in four games before sustaining another injury. He was among Dallas’ final roster cuts last month.
In 2019, Smith appeared in four games for the Cowboys and caught five passes for 113 yards and a touchdown.
