Raiders signed WR/KR Dwayne Harris, formerly of the Giants.
Harris is entering his age-31 season, so he fits the profile of the new-old Raiders, who seem to be going out of their way to sign veterans. Harris has little-to-zero value as a receiver and missed most of last season with a broken foot before getting released by the Giants last month. Harris is the in-house favorite to replace KR Cordarrelle Patterson, who was traded to New England. Apr 2 - 10:03 PM

Giants released WR/KR Dwayne Harris.

The move saves $2.45 million in cap space. Primarily a special teamer, Harris collected over $10 million across three years with the Giants despite managing one reception the past two seasons. He missed all but five games last year with a broken foot. The 30-year-old may resurface on a minimum-salary deal.
Mar 22 - 4:40 PM

Giants WR/KR Dwayne Harris is out for the season with a fractured foot.

Harris suffered the injury on Sunday against the Chargers, the same game the Giants lost Odell Beckham (broken ankle, likely out for the season), Brandon Marshall (sprained ankle, week to week), and Sterling Shepard (sprained ankle, week to week). Roger Lewis may end up being the de facto No. 1 receiver for the next couple games, but a trip to Denver and a home game against the Seahawks limits his appeal on the wire.

Giants WR Dwayne Harris suffered a foot injury in Sunday's game against the Chargers, and will not return.

Odell Beckham and Roger Lewis are the Giants' only two healthy receivers, literally. Harris was injured on a kick return. He required a cart to the locker room and diagnosed with a broken foot. He's likely headed to injured reserve. The G-Men will be working out wideouts this week.

Updating an earlier item, Giants WR/KR Dwayne Harris has agreed to a pay cut.

ESPN New York initially termed Harris' adjustment a "restructure." Harris' base salary was reduced from $2.475 million to $500,000, though in all he will make $1.1 million guaranteed. He can earn another $600,000 in incentives. That suggests his roster spot is safe despite a 2016 that saw him demoted on kick returns.

Giants WR/KR Dwayne Harris has agreed to a restructured contract.

Harris agreed to slash his base salary from $2.475 million to $500,000, presumably converting the rest to a pro-rated bonus. Foolishly given a five-year, $17.5 million contract in 2015, Harris struggled as a return man last season, which is where he's supposed to derive most of his value.

The Giants have approached WR/KR Dwayne Harris about taking a pay cut.

Signed to a hefty five-year, $17.5 million deal in 2015, Harris is scheduled to count $3.8 million against the cap in 2017. That's a steep price for a special teamer who isn't all that big of an asset in the return game. If Harris declines the Giants' request, he could be cut, freeing up $1.4 million in space.

Giants WR/KR Dwayne Harris was carted off the field Week 7 with an apparent back injury but later returned.

Harris took a big shot to the back on a punt return right before halftime. He stayed on the field for several minutes before riding the cart into the locker room. Making a habit of getting carted before returning, Harris was back on the field in the second half.

Giants WR/KR Dwayne Harris suffered a toe injury in Week 5.

He was ruled out in the fourth quarter. Odell Beckham replaced Harris on punt returns.
Sun, Oct 9, 2016 11:11:00 PM

Giants WR/KR Dwayne Harris says he’ll remain involved on offense.

Harris set career highs last year, posting a 36/396/4 line in six starts. He’s not higher than fourth on the depth chart with the addition of second-rounder Sterling Shepard and Victor Cruz returning. Harris should make his biggest impact on special teams.

Giants declared WR Dwayne Harris, WR Geremy Davis, S Cooper Taylor, S Craig Dahl, OT Emmett Cleary, DE Kerry Wynn, and OT Marshall Newhouse inactive for Week 17 against the Eagles.

Harris is out with a shoulder injury. His season ends with a 36-396-4 line.
Sun, Jan 3, 2016 11:32:00 AM

Dwayne Harris (back/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Harris was also listed as questionable for last Sunday night's loss to the Vikings, before managing six yards on two targets. Harris probably will play against the Eagles, but he can be safely ignored as a DFS punt play.
Fri, Jan 1, 2016 01:42:00 PM

Dwayne Harris (back, shoulder) remained limited on Thursday.

Harris should be active against the Eagles, but won't be a DFS option with Odell Beckham back in the fold.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 02:10:00 PM

Dwayne Harris was held to one catch for six yards in Week 16.

Even with Odell Beckham sidelined, Harris failed to make an impact. He played only 33 snaps and might not have been fully over his shoulder injury. Harris shouldn't see more than 4-5 targets with Beckham returning next week.
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 12:50:00 AM

Dwayne Harris (shoulder) is active for Week 16 against the Vikings.

With Odell Beckham suspended, Harris will take on a bigger slot role. Inactive for the Giants are WR Geremy Davis, CB Jayron Hosley, S Cooper Taylor, LB Devon Kennard, OG Adam Gettis, OT Emmett Cleary, and DE Stansly Maponga.
