The Green Bay Packers won’t be bringing running back DuJuan Harris back next season. They delivered that message to Harris on Monday.
Harris will be able to sign with any NFL team when free agency gets underway at 3 p.m. CT this afternoon.
Harris was promoted from the practice squad late in the 2012 season and rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns in the final month and started a pair of playoff games.
Mike McCarthy listed Harris as his starting running back going into the 2013 season, even after the Packers selected Eddie Lacy in the second round of the draft. But Harris suffered a patellar tendon injury and he would never see the field that season.
Lacy and James Starks were cemented in as the Packers primary backs this past season which meant little opportunity for Harris.
The Packers have three running backs on their roster at the moment, Lacy, Starks and Rajion Neal, who finished last season on the practice squad.
