An undrafted rookie out of Assumption College made quite an impression his first year in the NFL. Deonte Harris would go on to earn All-Pro honors last season for leading the league in punt returns (36), punt return yards (338), combined returns (60), and combined return yards (982).
Harris also caught six passes for 24 yards and hauled in a 50 yard pass from Taysom Hill in the playoff loss to the Vikings.
“He’s been ready for more and more,” said head coach Sean Payton on Harris heading into year two. “And every time we’ve added a little bit more to his plate he’s handled it pretty well, relative to the route tree. So, were trying to keep finding roles for him because he does so many things well.”
