The Ravens got a jump start on their spring cleaning by releasing a host of players in January, including defensive back Davontae Harris. This week, they re-signed Harris to a brand new deal, per the league’s transactions wire.
It was an unusual flurry of transactions by the Ravens, who were effectively cutting veterans as a professional courtesy. After Harris, fellow DB Tramon Williams, running back Mark Ingram, quarterback RG3, and wide receiver De’Anthony Harris were released, they were eligible to join playoff teams. Or, at minimum, engage in talks for 2021 contracts elsewhere.
The Ravens plucked Harris off waivers from the Broncos towards the end of the year. He went on to suit up in four games and register ten tackles before suffering an ankle injury. After previous stints with the Bengals and Broncos, he’ll try to stick with the Ravens for next season.
