Philadelphia Eagles, safety Anthony Harris agree to 1-year deal

Strong safety Anthony Harris, the former Minnesota Vikings franchise player who spent last season with the Eagles, is returning to Philadelphia on a one-year deal, the team announced Friday.

After joining the Eagles on a one-year, $4 million deal in 2021, Harris, who was limited by hand and groin injuries for part of the season, appeared in 14 games and finished with 72 tackles, an interception and three passes defensed.

He spent his first six NFL seasons with the Vikings.

Harris' best season came in 2019, when he tied for the league lead in interceptions (6) and added 11 passes defensed. He played under the franchise tag in 2020, earning a salary of $11.4 million, but was not as effective.

An undrafted free agent out of Virginia in 2015, Harris, who turns 31 in October, has started 61 games over seven NFL seasons and has 10 career interceptions.
