This move saves the Giants $2.4 million in cap-space, bringing their cap to around $8.5 million.
Harris missed a majority of the season in 2018 with a foot injury. He has struggled to maintain the success he had early on in his contract, and was an obvious cut candidate heading into free agency.
Harris had breakout years in 2013 and ’14. He recorded 857 and 472 yards respectively in those years and had one touchdown (kick return) in 2015. He was signed by the Giants from Dallas to be a premier level kick returner, but a string of injuries derailed his effectiveness. He did make the Pro-Bowl in 2016 as a special teams player.[sc name=”Email Signup”]
