De’Vante Harris, Cornerback
Harris was one of the many undrafted free agents the Saints brought in this offseason. His excellent play in tranning camp earned him a spot on the 2016 roster. Not only that, he was actually set to be the starting nickel corner, but things has not gone well for Harris. Sterling Shepard owned him in week 2 and he made a critical mistake on a punt against the Falcons.
That was enough to put him in Sean Payton’s “dog house”. Harris hasn’t had a snap on defense since the Giants game and might have a long way to get back onto the field.
Harris is in his first year of a 3-year $1,620,000 contract. His contract currently counts $450,000 against the 2016 cap, but the Saints can cut him at any time for the next 3 years without adding to the dead cap.
Harris could stick around for a few more years, but he will have to prove he can be the guy we thought he would be in tranning camp.
