The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to a 1 year deal with veteran CB Walt Harris.
Harris (35) has played 13 NFL seasons after being drafted by the Chicago Bears out of Mississippi State in 1996. Aside from the Bears, Harris has also played for the Indianapolis Colts, Washington Redskins and most recently the San Francisco 49ers. He sat out the 2009 season while recovering from a knee injury.
Harris will turn 36 during Training Camp, and will provide the team some insurance with CB’s Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb each returning from knee injuries. Harris is also behind Domonique Foxworth and Chris Carr on the Ravens depth chart, and will be competing with veterans Travis Fisher and Cary Williams to make the roster in Westminster.
Harris (5’11″) made his only Pro Bowl in 2006 as a member of the Niners. He has 35 career interceptions, 4 of which have been returned for TD’s. Harris was in Owings Mills for a tryout earlier this month with veterans Ken Lucas and Ken Hamlin. He was reportedly offered a contract after the tryout but originally declined. The team has since also signed Hamlin.
