Steelers signed OT Ryan Harris, formerly of the Broncos, to a two-year, $3.9 million contract.
Harris' addition means the Steelers probably expect Kelvin Beachum to walk in free agency. Harris made 13 starts on Peyton Manning's blindside last season, but was far from effective. Now 31, he'll join Alejandro Villanueva as an option on Pittsburgh's left side. Marcus Gilbert will probably remain at right tackle. All that being said, Harris' money is not imposing enough to consider Beachum's departure a sure thing. Mar 15 - 3:11 PM

Free agent OT Ryan Harris will visit the Steelers.

Pittsburgh's interest in Harris suggests Kelvin Beachum won't be re-signed. The Steelers are also scheduled to visit with Russell Okung next week.
Mar 12 - 7:37 PM

Broncos agreed to terms with OT Ryan Harris, formerly of the Chiefs.

Harris, who played for coach Gary Kubiak in 2012-13, provides depth after LT Ryan Clady (ACL) was lost for the season. Harris was middling as the Chiefs' right tackle last season, but has experience on the blindside. It's a no-brainer signing for a Broncos team that already lacked tackle depth before Clady's injury.

Chiefs signed RT Ryan Harris.

Harris, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Broncos. He's appeared in 78 games, making 39 starts mostly at right tackle. In K.C., he'll push Donald Stephenson for the starting job opposite Eric Fisher and compete with J'Marcus Webb for swing-tackle duties. Harris made three starts for Houston in 2013.

Free agent OT Ryan Harris worked out for the Dolphins on Monday.

Harris, 29, was the mystery fourth lineman, joining C Samson Satele, G Daryn Colledge, and C Steve Vallos. Harris is mostly a right tackle who has started 39 games in his career. The Dolphins are reportedly going to sign Colledge, but Harris and Satele drew positive reviews at the workout and may also be added.

Texans re-signed OT Ryan Harris to a one-year contract.

Harris, 28, played in 16 games last season, starting two. Pro Football Focus graded him out positively as a pass blocker and in the screen game, but as a slight liability against the run. Harris is an athlete whose natural fit is in a zone-blocking scheme. He'll likely serve as solid depth behind Derek Newton at right tackle.

Texans signed OT Ryan Harris, formerly of the Broncos.

Harris was released on Friday. He'll be returning to a zone-blocking scheme in Houston, and could be a legitimate threat to Derek Newton's right tackle job.

Broncos signed OT Ryan Harris, formerly of the Eagles.

Harris, 27 in March, was released at final cuts in Philly with an injury settlement after undergoing back surgery. Following Chris Kuper's injury, Harris will serve as depth during what may be a short-lived Denver playoff run.

The Vikings worked out free agent OT Ryan Harris on Thursday.

Harris was amongst the Eagles' final cuts last month after his ever troublesome back held him out for a majority of training camp. He'd provide solid depth along Minnesota's shaky offensive line if healthy, but there's currently little reason to believe he'd be able to stay on the field.

Eagles released OT Ryan Harris and OG Reggie Wells.

Harris goes with an injury settlement after recent back surgery. We suspect he won't play this season. Wells is versatile, but a career journeyman.

Eagles RT Ryan Harris underwent what the team considers a "successful" microdiscectomy on his troublesome back Monday.

Teams don't typically announce surgeries as "unsuccessful." The hope is that Harris' will fix the problems he's experienced for the last six years, dating back to Notre Dame. The Eagles have not provided a timetable for Harris to return, but the odds are against him being an early-season contributor. Todd Herramans will open the year on Mike Vick's blind side.

Eagles RT Ryan Harris' back operation has been scheduled for Sunday.

The Eagles said on Friday that Harris would go under-the-knife "within the next week." It's looking doubtful Harris will be able to contribute in any meaningful way this season. Todd Herremans is currently ticketed as Michael Vick's Week 1 blindside protector.
Sat, Aug 27, 2011 12:58:00 PM

Eagles RT Ryan Harris will undergo back surgery "within the next week" and is out indefinitely.

The procedure will repair a herniated disc, but it's a long-term concern. Harris has undergone three known back surgeries in six years, dating back to his senior season at Notre Dame. His medical history is one of the major reasons the Eagles were able to sign Harris on the cheap this offseason. Harris threatens to be a total non-factor in Philly this year. So far, the Eagles' free-wheeling moves in free agency have yet to pay obvious dividends.

Eagles RT Ryan Harris (back) has participated in just one practice and zero preseason games since signing on August 4.

Harris' back woes have his role and effectiveness in question. According to Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News, "(Harris') chances of being any kind of a pass-protection factor this season are slim." Combined with Winston Justice's slow recovery from knee surgery, Michael Vick's blind side has become a major concern. Current starter King Dunlap is not the answer.

Eagles RT Ryan Harris (back) returned to practice on Saturday.

Harris missed Philadelphia's second preseason game and nearly two weeks of practice. He has the talent to be the Eagles starter, but HC Andy Reid said on Saturday that he currently considers King Dunlap to be his starting right tackle. That will change if both Harris and Winston Justice can stay healthy.
