Raiders re-sign return specialist Dwayne Harris
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders have re-signed free agent return specialist Dwayne Harris.
The team announced Monday that Harris will return after a strong debut season in Oakland.
Harris averaged 14.1 yards per punt return last season, the second-best mark in franchise history and tied for the NFL lead. The highlight of his season was a 99-yard return for a TD against Denver on Christmas Eve, tied for the second-longest punt return in NFL history.
The 31-year-old Harris also averaged 22.9 yards per kick return and was a key member of the coverage units.
He played only sparingly on offense with six catches for 40 yards and two carries for 12 yards.
