Bio

David Harris is entering his eighth season with the New York Jets. Harris, a speedy linebacker, is widely considered one of the most underrated players in the NFL. He has registered four seasons with 100-plus tackles, while being named All-Pro (2009) and winning the Ed Block Courage Award (2009). Harris is a free agent after 2014.

Early Years & College

Harris was born in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Jan. 21, 1984. He attended Ottawa Hills High where he earned All-State honors and set a school record as a junior by recording 158 tackles. After graduating, Harris went to the University of Michigan where he was forced to redshirt his first two seasons due to injuries, finally bursting onto the national scene as a junior. In 2006, Harris started 13 games and racked up 96 total tackles (15 for loss) and three sacks, while earning All-Big Ten honors, Michigan team MVP and second-team All-America.

New York Jets

Harris was selected in the second round of the 2007 NFL draft (47th overall) after the Jets traded their second-, third- and sixth-round picks to the Green Bay Packers. He was inserted into the starting lineup in Week 8 and made his presence felt immediately, recording 17 tackles and one sack, then following that up with a 24-tackle performance the next week en route to NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month honors. In seven seasons in New York, Harris has 761 tackles, 24.5 sacks and six interceptions. He’s started every game since 2009.
