Giants May Cut WR Dwayne Harris

The Giants gave Harris a sizable deal (by special teams standards) prior to the 2015 season in order to pry him away from the Cowboys. Harris is now slated to enter the third season of his five-year, $17.5MM contract ($7.1MM guaranteed), and it makes sense that the Giants would want to shave down that number. Harris will now have to weigh his potential market before making a call on a proposed pay cut. On one hand, he’s coming off of his first career Pro Bowl selection. On the other hand, he’s going to turn 30 in September, so he’s unlikely to fetch anything with significant long-term guarantees.

Last year, Harris returned 29 punts for 170 yards (5.9 average) and took back 22 kickoffs for 533 yards (24.2 average).

    Might be a nice homecoming in Dallas, especially if Patterson (former Vike) costs what the estimates say.

    very happy to see him leave NY. This guy NEVER should have been selected to the pro bowl. He is an absolute bonehead when it comes to returning. He almost got killed in the Rams(?) game last year trying to make a play with no time on the clock. Has no idea when to call for a fair catch and when not to. He literally scares me when I see the ball kicked to him that he will cough it up. Cut him and Rainey and we’ll start over on special teams.
