Harris' two-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter came on a jump-pass from NT Dontari Poe. You read that right. Kansas City ran the trick play to jump out to a 33-10 lead. Harris entered the game with 21 targets on the season.

Chiefs signed TE Demetrius Harris to a three-year, $6.3 million contract extension.

Harris' contract was set to expire after the playoffs, and he was scheduled for restricted free agency. The new deal should at very least buy out Harris' RFA year. Harris, 24, is a college basketball player who stands 6-foot-6, 237 and appeared in all 16 games (nine starts) this season, catching seven passes for 74 yards and a touchdown. He'll likely battle James O'Shaughnessy to back up Travis Kelce in 2016.

Chiefs TE Demetrius Harris is recovering from a second foot operation.

Harris went under the knife after breaking his foot last November. He was re-signed in March. His second operation just took place this month, but coach Andy Reid is "optimistic" he'll be ready for training camp. Harris had another screw inserted to "promote healing." A plus athlete, Harris played 60 snaps last season, catching three passes in eight games as Kansas City's No. 3 tight end. If healthy, he'll be the favorite for No. 2 duties in 2015.

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.

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.

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.
