The Jacksonville Jaguars announced they were signing veteran running back DuJaun Harris on Sunday morning in a press release. Harris, the sixth-year veteran, spent the last two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, rushing for 138 yards and adding another 115 receiving yards, including a touchdown.
If Harris’ name sounds familiar, it’s because he originally began his NFL career in 2011 with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Harris made the Jaguars final roster in 2011, though he only had nine carries for 42 yards.
The Jaguars have been a little banged up at the running back position, so it should be no surprise they brought someone in to help spread the carries in the preseason and compete for that fourth running back spot.
Eventually Harris was released and picked up by the Green Bay Packers where he spent two seasons before spending some time with the Seattle Seahawks and then 49ers.
To make room for Harris on the roster the Jaguars waived/injured cornerback Charles Gaines.
