Chiefs tendered exclusive rights free agent TE Demetrius Harris.
A 6-foot-7, 257-pound college basketball player, Harris spent the first half of 2014 as the Chiefs' No. 3 tight end. Harris broke his foot in November. With Anthony Fasano gone, Harris will have a chance to fill Travis Kelce's early-season role as a pass-game specialist. Because of his athleticism, 23-year-old Harris is worth monitoring closely in Dynasty leagues. Mar 7 - 3:43 PM

Chiefs placed TE Demetrius Harris on injured reserve with a broken foot, ending his season.

Harris broke his foot in Week 10. The former college basketball player with 4.52 wheels at 6'7/257 caught just three passes for 20 yards as the No. 3 tight end this season. He should be good to go for the entire offseason program. Harris remains an intriguing prospect for deep Dynasty leaguers to monitor.

Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris is up to 257 pounds after reporting to the team at 225 last year as a rookie.

Harris has the early makings of becoming a puff-piece All-Star this summer. Coach Andy Reid praised Harris' work at rookie minicamp, saying it's clear the ex-basketball player has worked "so stinkin' hard." Now, he's even getting reps with the first-team offense at OTAs while Travis Kelce continues to recover from knee surgery. Harris is a guy to watch, but let's wait for the pads to come on.

Coach Andy Reid praised second-year TE Demetrius Harris' work at the Chiefs' rookie minicamp.

"This camp was great for him," Reid said. "He played exceptionally well. He’s so big, and he’s worked so stinkin’ hard in that weight room. He’s been living in there this offseason and you can tell." A converted basketball player, Harris spent last season on the practice squad. He stands 6-foot-7 and 230 pounds with 4.52 wheels. Anthony Fasano is the top blocking tight end in Kansas City, while Travis Kelce is expected to be a big part of the 2014 offense. But Harris has an intriguing skill set and is a player to monitor in deep dynasty.

Chiefs released TE Demetrius Harris.

An intriguing prospect thanks to his 6'5/237 frame and basketball background, Harris didn't develop quickly enough. He has a shot to stick in the league if someone is willing to be patient with him.

Coach Andy Reid singled out TE Demetrius Harris for performing well throughout OTAs.

Harris, a college basketball player, is a former power forward trying to make the popular conversion to tight end. Reid says Harris has gotten "better and better every day," while adding he's continually made plays despite the tough transition. Although Harris won't contribute in a crowded Chiefs tight end corps this year, he's a guy to keep an eye on moving forward.

Chiefs signed Wisconsin-Milwaukee TE Demetrius Harris.

Harris (6-foot-5 1/2, 237) played power forward at UW-Milwaukee, averaging 9.1 points per game and 5.3 rebounds as a senior starter. His stock soared when Harris ran a 4.52 forty with a 10-foot-2 broad jump and 36 1/2-inch vertical during a pre-draft workout. Harris originally signed with Arkansas State to play safety and has a football background. He only bench pressed 225 pounds once, so Harris obviously must add strength. But he's a great practice squad candidate for the Chiefs.
