Giants release returner Harris | Daily Mail Online

The New York Giants announced Thursday that they terminated the contract of receiver/returner Dwayne Harris.

Harris missed the last 11 games of the 2017 season after breaking a foot.

Harris was slated to count $4.05 million against the Giants’ salary cap as he entered the fourth year of a five-year, $17.5 million deal.

Harris didn’t catch a pass last season before the injury. He averaged 20.9 yards on nine kickoff returns and 6.9 yards on seven punt returns.

He returned both a kickoff and punt for a score in 2015 in his first season with the Giants. He averaged 28.7 on kickoff returns that season and 10.0 on punts.

His return averages dropped to 24.2 and 5.9, respectively, in 2016, but he made the Pro Bowl after that campaign.

Harris caught a career-best 36 passes for 396 yards and four touchdowns in 2015. He had just one catch for 13 yards in 2016.

Harris played for the Dallas Cowboys from 2011-14 before signing with the Giants as a free agent.
