The Philadelphia Eagles are marking previous Minnesota Vikings safety Anthony Harris to a one-year, $5 million agreement, agent Drew Rosenhaus disclosed to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Harris became an unrestricted free agent after the safety couldn’t arrive at a long-term deal with the Vikings subsequent to signing his $11.441 million franchise label last May.
One season following a breakout campaign in which he led all NFL safeguards with six interceptions, Harris didn’t record a single interception in 2020. The 29-year-old Harris, notwithstanding, recorded a career-high 104 tackles last season while logging 94.6% of defensive snaps.
Sources revealed to ESPN that the Vikings investigated the alternative of trading Harris whenever he had been labeled for the 2020 season, with the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns expressing interest.
Harris entered the NFL in 2015 as an undrafted free agent from the University of Virginia. Wounds toward the finish of his college career and subsequent shoulder and hand surgeries restricted what he could do physically early on in Minnesota. He initially saw his direction onto the field through special teams and, after wounds to Andrew Sendejo, he became a full-time starter at safety inverse Harrison Smith in 2018.
