Tony Gonzalez and Larry Johnson have dominated the Chiefs news cycle in recent days, so you might not have heard that Napoleon Harris was cut. Well, today he went back to the team that traded Randy Moss for him and a number one pick, the Minnesota Vikings. He will also get to rejoin his former teammates from back in Kansas City–Jared Allen and Benny Sapp. The Viking Age has the news:
Napoleon Harris will serve a second tour of duty as a Vikings linebacker after signing a contract for the rest of the season. Harris began the year with Kansas City but was unable to crack the depth chart for whatever reason – this after a 2007 campaign which saw him lead the Chiefs in tackles. Harris joins Dontarrious Thomas as a second former Viking brought in to fill the void left by the injuries to E.J. Henderson and Heath Farwell, both of whom have been placed on IR.
The Chiefs obvioulsy cut Harris because he couldn’t beat out players that were making about a fourth of his salary. This was another bad off-season signing for Carl Peterson. Luckily, he made the right decision and got rid of this one sooner rather than later. Consider yourself lucky, Pat Surtain.
