The former first-round pick spent the preseason with Minnesota and ultimately landed on the practice squad to start the regular season. He ended up seeing time in nine games for the Vikings, with the majority of his snaps coming on special teams. He got into 23 offensive snaps but didn’t garner a target.

Harry started his career with the Patriots, and despite playing alongside Tom Brady in 2019, the wideout finished with only 105 receiving yards and two touchdowns. It got a bit better with the rebuilding Patriots in 2020, as Harry finished with 309 receiving yards. He didn’t find the end zone in 2021, and after having his fifth-year option declined in 2022, he was dealt to the Bears. He got into seven games with Chicago last season, finishing with seven catches.

The Vikings are now rostering five receivers, with Jefferson joining rookie Jordan Addison and K.J. Osborn in the starting lineup. If the team is looking for additional depth, they could turn to any of the four receivers stashed on the practice squad.
