Harris is being released by the Jets, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Harris' tenure with the Jets comes to an end after 10 seasons, as he is the latest of a handful of veterans being released by the team this offseason. A second-round draft pick from Michigan, Harris was the backbone of the Jets' defense for several years, notching 1,088 tackles and 35.5 sacks during his 10 seasons in New York, missing only six games during that span. While the Jets are opting to get younger, Harris should attract the attention of several teams around the league looking to bolster their linebacking corps. At 33, it seems like the veteran still has something left in the tank, but he will likely need to take a major pay cut if he hopes to continue his career elsewhere.
