  • Marcell Harris: Let go Thursday

    Harris was waived by the Jets on Thursday, Billy Riccette of Jets Wire reports. Harris appeared in all 10 games for the Jets this season, mostly contributing on special teams. The 28-year-old had signed with the Jets in the offseason after having spent the first four seasons of his career with the 49ers. His time with New York will end after he recorded 12 tackles (seven solo) in 10 games. He'll now pursue a new opportunity elsewhere.

  • Jets' Marcell Harris: Headed to New York

    Harris is slated to sign with the Jets, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Harris will link back up with former defensive coordinator Robert Saleh who is in his second season as New York's head coach. The safety-turned-linebacker spent the first three seasons of his career playing primarily in the secondary of Saleh's defense in San Francisco, but moved into a more prominent role at weakside linebacker in 2021, appearing in 15 games with seven starts. The addition of the versatile Harris both bolsters the Jets' defensive depth and provides the team with another special-teams option.

  • Marcell Harris: Visits with Jets

    Harris met with the Jets for a free-agent visit Thursday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports. Harris is looking for a new home for the first time in his career after failing to re-sign with the 49ers before hitting free agency in March. The 2018 sixth-round pick totaled 44 tackles, one sack and one interception across 15 games with seven starts last season while playing primarily at weakside linebacker - a current position of need for the Jets. Harris, who can also play safety, has previously played under Jets head coach Robert Saleh, who served as San Francisco's defensive coordinator from 2017 to 2020, and would be in line for rotational defensive work and special teams snaps if he ends up signing with New York.

  • 49ers' Marcell Harris: Chance to suit up Sunday

    Harris (concussion) is considered questionable for Week 13 against the Seahawaks, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. The 27-year-old is still going through concussion protocol, but head coach Kyle Shanahan believes he could play Sunday. With both Dre Greenlaw (abdomen) and Fred Warner (hamstring) not expected to play, the 49ers will be especially thin at linebacker regardless of whether Harris can suit up or not. Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles is expected to step into a much more substantial role in Week 13.

  • 49ers' Marcell Harris: Officially questionable for Week 7

    Harris (thumb) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Colts, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Harris underwent surgery to repair a broken right thumb during the 49ers' bye week. If he is able to suit up, he will likely do so while wearing a cast, which may hinder his tackling ability. The 27-year-old has only totaled 11 tackles through five games, so even if he is healthy, he isn't a viable option in IDP leagues.

  • 49ers' Marcell Harris: Lining up at linebacker

    Harris has taken reps are linebacker more regularly than safety during the early days of training camp, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Harris lined up at linebacker during his last appearance for the 49ers, and it's possible the team would rather primarily use him there than at safety. In any case, the 27-year-old's versatility makes him a valuable reserve option for San Francisco.

  • 49ers' Marcell Harris: Nursing ankle injury

    Harris is day-to-day with an ankle injury, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Harris is expected to play a key backup role in San Francisco's safety corps, and it doesn't look like this ankle injury will slow him down for too long. He mostly contributes on special teams, but Harris boasts the athleticism to make an impact in IDP formats should he get a chance to start.

  • 49ers' Marcell Harris: Puts athleticism on display

    Harris recorded 40 tackles (23 solo), five passes defended and three forced fumbles over 13 games in 2019. Harris spent most of the season on the special teams unit, but he gave us a glimpse of what he could produce as a starter when he totaled 28 tackles, five passes defended and a forced fumble over four games filling in for Jaquiski Tartt. The 25-year-old possesses tremendous speed and hit power -- ideal qualities for a special teams player -- but he could put up useful IDP numbers when starting. Harris remains under contract for the 2020 season, where he should stick as a backup safety.

The sixth-rounder will compete for a roster spot in a depth role at safety.
