The interstate trade between Wisconsin and Minnesota seems to only be flowing one way these days, as the Vikings have signed yet another former Packer to their roster.
Running Back DuJuan Harris agreed to a one year deal with the Vikings, according to his agent, and that means the Vikings have added another name to their turbulent running back situation. Harris, previously an Exclusive Rights Free Agent that was not tendered by the Packers, had his best season in 2012 when he was called up from the practice squad to join the Packers active roster due to injuries. He ran the ball 17 times for 47 and a score in a playoff victory over the Vikings that year.
Due to his status as an untendered exclusive rights free agent, rather than a “true” unrestricted free agent, this signing will not impact the 2016 compensatory picks formula for the Vikings or the Packers.
Harris, 26, has an uphill battle ahead of him in terms of making this Vikings regular season roster.
