Minnesota Vikings sign DuJuan Harris

MINNEAPOLIS -- The two biggest games of DuJuan Harris' NFL career came on Dec. 30, 2012 -- when he posted 70 yards in a game dominated by Adrian Peterson's run at history -- and Jan. 5, 2013, when Harris had 100 combined yards in the Green Bay Packers' wild card win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Now, Harris is the latest former Packers player to wind up in Minnesota.

The Vikings signed the 26-year-old running back on Thursday afternoon, according to a tweet from Harris' agent, Andy Simms. Harris, who was an exclusive rights free agent that didn't receive a tender from the Packers, will make $660,000 this season.

His addition to the roster gives the Vikings another young running back, and Harris also has experience as a kickoff returner. He had 183 yards on nine kick returns in the Packers' final six regular season games. Whether the Vikings are in need of depth in the backfield or on special teams, Harris is a sensible, low-cost addition.

He's also the next in a long line of Packers to migrate to Minnesota; the Vikings currently have Harris, wide receiver Charles Johnson, tight end Brandon Bostick and guard Jordan McCray on their 90-man roster, and just released wide receiver Greg Jennings over the weekend. We've discussed the list of former players to make the Green Bay-to-Minnesota move enough that the trend is well established by now. Harris' addition is another installment.
