The Vikings have released Harris, 1500espn.com reports.

DuJuan Harris RB NO 8 months ago

Harris signed a one-year contract with the Vikings on Thursday, according to his agent.

The 26-year-old former UDFA served as Green Bay's No. 3 running back in 2014, piling up 64 rushing yards on just 16 carries, along with 11 yards on a lone reception. It's still unclear whether Adrian Peterson will be back with the Vikings next season, but even if the six-time Pro Bowler isn't around, Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will likely be ahead of Harris in the pecking order. Harris will probably have to fight for a roster spot, regardless of what happens with Peterson.

Harris won't be tendered a contract by the Packers and will become a free agent Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

After missing the 2013 season due to a knee injury, Harris played third banana in the Packers' depth chart at running back in 2014, recording 16 rushes for 64 yards and one catch for 11 yards in 15 contests. He also acted as the primary kick returner for part of the year, averaging 20.7 yards on 22 returns. Expect him to catch on with another organization as a reserve RB.

Harris had 16 carries for 64 yards and one reception for 11 yards over 15 games in the 2014 season.

Harris' primary role in 2014 was returning kicks, but he did not run with the opportunity, and lost the job late in the year. He brought a different style to the table than either Eddie Lacy or James Starks, but he will likely need to earn his way onto the Packers' 2015 roster.

Harris ran the ball eight times for 52 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Harris received as many carries Sunday as he had all season entering the game, and he actually finished the blowout as the Packers' leading rusher. He did not get a chance to play until garbage time, but he ran hard and could have earned himself a few more carries down the road.

Harris had two carries for minus-one yard in Sunday's victory over the Panthers.

Harris saw action late in Sunday's game with the Packers comfortably ahead and fellow running back James Starks sidelined with an ankle injury. Harris has tallied just seven touches all season, but he would serve as the backup behind Eddie Lacy if Starks is forced to miss any further action.

Harris did not record a touch Thursday for the second straight game.

Harris has not gotten a chance to run the ball the last two weeks despite the Packers winning both games fairly handily. Given that, and his standing as the third running back on the depth chart behind Eddie Lacy and James Starks, expect his contributions to remain minimal at best.

Harris caught one pass for 11 yards in Sunday's victory over the Jets.

Harris tallied more touches than backup running back James Starks, but neither player recorded a carry as the Packers leaned heavily on the passing game while climbing out of a 21-3 hole. Starks remains the top backup behind Eddie Lacy, and Harris will continue playing sparingly, primarily on passing downs.

Harris could be bumped up on the depth chart for Week 2, after fellow Packers running back Eddie Lacy was diagnosed with a concussion Thursday night, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Harris had a poor Thursday night, as he gained seven yards on one garbage-time carry, and was removed from kick-return duties following a pair of questionable decisions. While his role in the offense was minimal with Lacy healthy Thursday, Harris is set to work as James Starks' top backup if Lacy can't play in Week 2 against the Jets.

Harris had 56 yards on 12 carries and 42 yards on two receptions in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Eddie Lacy handled just one drive, leaving plenty of first-team work for Harris and James Starks. The two would likely both get touches in the event of a Lacy injury, but Starks seems to have a pretty decent grip on the No. 2 spot on the depth chart.
