Impending free agent P Nick Harris wants to return to the Lions in 2013.

Harris, 35 at the start of next season, was signed after Week 2 and went on to post a poor 37.6 net average on 67 punts. The Lions can do a lot better.

Lions signed P Nick Harris.

Harris spent eight seasons with Detroit from 2003-10, averaging 42.5 yards per punt. He'll take over now that Ben Graham is out for the season.

Panthers released P Nick Harris; waived WR Darvin Adams.

The Panthers have opted to go with sixth-round pick Brad Nortman at punter. An 11-year veteran, Harris could resurface as a mid-season replacement. A teammate of Cam Newton's at Auburn, Adams appeared in two games last season. He could be a candidate for the practice squad.

Panthers signed P Nick Harris, formerly of the Jaguars.

The 34-year-old enters a camp battle with sixth-round rookie Brad Nortman. Nortman should have to absolutely tank to lose the job to the shaky veteran.

Jaguars waived punters Nick Harris and Spencer Lanning.

After making third-round pick Bryan Anger the highest-drafted punter since 1995, both Harris and Lanning were expendable. They'll look to latch on and compete for a starting job elsewhere.

Jaguars re-signed P Nick Harris.

Harris averaged 42.7 yards on 72 punts after taking over for Matt Turk in early October last season. He's expected to compete with Spencer Lanning, who was recently signed a futures contract.

Jaguars agreed to terms with P Nick Harris, formerly of the Lions.

Harris averaged 43.2 yards on 627 punts with Detroit from 2003-2010. He'll replace Matt Turk, who is being released after a feeble 39.7 average through five weeks.

Lions released P Nick Harris.

The Lions punter since 2003, Harris was beat out by undrafted rookie Ryan Donahue. Although Harris was set to make $1.4 million this season, the Detroit Free Press reports the decision was based on performance, not salary. Harris should get a call once someone's punter goes down this season.
Sat, Sep 3, 2011 01:57:00 PM

Lions signed P Nick Harris to a five-year contract extension through 2012.

Harris had one year remaining on his old deal. The 29-year-old punter averaged 45 yards per punt in 2006 and finished with a 38.2-yard net.
Tue, Sep 11, 2007 12:33:00 AM

Lions re-signed punter Nick Harris to a long-term contract.

He's enjoyed a solid season and should be with Detroit for a while.
Sun, Jan 2, 2005 11:56:00 AM

The Lions re-signed punter Nick Harris.

Harris had an uneven season in 2003, but will be the favorite to win the Detroit job over undrafted FA Curt Ansel.
