Harris, who was an All-American at Oregon before being kicked off the team and eventually going undrafted, was waived by the Eagles a day after the team dropped from 90 on their roster to 80.
The move came as a surprise to a few media outlets including NBC 10 Philadelphia, who felt that Harris "showed well early in camp" but "he wasn't the same once he suffered an ankle injury."
Harris will now hit the waiver wire and could be picked up by a team that is a dire need of depth at the cornerback position. PhiladelphiaEagles.com's Dave Spadaro feels that "Harris needs to add strength and he needs to refine his technique and he still needs to learn to approach the game as a professional. Talent alone doesn't get it done in this league. Every player has talent."
The Indianapolis Colts will have the first crack at Harris on the waiver wire so he could end up there.
