Former Packers RB DuJuan Harris signed by...who else...the Vikings

New, comments

Have you gotten sick of the jokes about the Vikings picking up the Packers' sloppy seconds? TOO BAD.

It just doesn't stop. Ever.

Like a moth to a flame, yet another player who leaves the Green Bay Packers organization has signed with the Minnesota Vikings. Running back DuJuan Harris will join former teammate Brandon Bostick in purple, reports his agent Andy Simms:

Keep the jokes coming.

Harris first signed with the Packers late in the 2012 season, and contributed down the stretch and in the playoffs that year. In four regular season games (two starts), Harris recorded 34 carries for 157 yards and two scores, then added 100 yards and two more touchdowns on 28 carries in the Packers' two playoff games.

In 2013, Harris was sidelined for the entire season due to a knee injury, but returned to the squad for 2014 as the Packers' primary kickoff returner and third-string running back. Harris saw little time on offense, however, and carried the ball only 16 times this season.

He will join a Vikings running back group that consists of Adrian Peterson (for now), Jerick McKinnon, Matt Asiata, Joe BanyardHenry Josey, and Dominique Williams.
