Harris has yet to be activated for a game. How can he produce anything?
There’s not much impact to be had for a guy who is basically the equivalent of a veteran practice squad player.
Some probably expected Harris to be a bit more of a stabilizing veteran presence, or insurance against injury. He still is, but the fact that he hasn’t dressed for a game means he’s on the absolute bottom of the depth chart.
Harris has proven to be one of the least-impactful players on the roster. Maybe that’s not his fault because Warford grew into his role much faster than anyone predicted. But the fact remains he’s still consistently one of the bottom eight players on the entire roster, and he’s on a two-year contract to do it.
