Jackie Harris Career

Professional career

Harris was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the fourth round (102nd overall) of the 1990 NFL Draft. He made 6 starts in two tight end formations in 1991 and was fourth on the team with 24 receptions for 264 yards and three touchdowns.

He was a full-time starter in 1992 until the season's seventh game and still received 55 receptions, which ranked second on the team and second in the NFL for tight ends. After rushing for 128 yards against the Denver Broncos, he was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Despite missing four games due to a left meniscus tear, he still finished second on the team in receiving second place behind Sterling Sharpe for the second year in a row. Due to his knee injury, he was forced to miss two playoff games.

Harris signed a four-year, $7.6 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a restricted free agent, making him the NFL's highest-paid tight end by annual average salary. Despite the fact that the Packers had the option, they eventually decided not to match the competition.

After suffering a shoulder injury against the Chicago Bears and being placed on the injured reserve list on November 22, he was limited to only 9 games in 1994. He was second in receptions among NFC tight ends at the time of his injury.

For the first time in his career, he played 16 games, posting career-highs with 62 receptions (team record for tight ends) for 751 yards. With ten catches for 122 yards against the Green Bay Packers, he set a new club record for receptions by a close end.

Tony Dungy, the team's new head coach, in 1996, introduced a run-oriented offense, which caused his sales to decline over the next two years.

In 1997, he missed four games due to a groin injury, which included his return to the Detroit Lions in the playoffs. Due to injuries from his latest hernia surgery, he was placed on the injured reserve list before the divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers.

He signed with the Tennessee Oilers on March 11, 1998, finishing second on the team with 43 receptions for 412 yards and two touchdowns.

He had 14 postseason receptions for a team-high 117 yards, tied for the team's highest number in postseason receptions. Harris started in a 2 tight end formation in Super Bowl XXIV, but the Kurt Warner-led St. Louis Rams would defeat them.

Harris became a free agent with the Dallas Cowboys on March 17, 2000. Michael Irvin old number #88 was given to him. Although he was just supposed to replace backup Eric Bjornson and complement tight end David LaFleur after wide receivers Joey Galloway and Raghib Ismail were lost for the season, Harris became a key contributor to the offense, ranking second in touchdown receptions (39) and third in receiving yards (306). In 2001, LaFleur was excused from work and became the team's starter at tight end.

Harris was released by the team on February 28, 2002 to "create salary cap space," effectively ending his football career after two years of a four-year deal.
