Dwayne Harris leaving Cowboys for five-year deal with Giants

IRVING, Texas – Dwayne Harris considers himself the NFL’s most versatile special-teamer and now the Giants will pay him that way, luring him away from Dallas with what sources tell FOX Sports Southwest is a five-year, $17.5-million contract.

"Will be taking my talents to the Big Apple,” Harris tweeted Tuesday, shortly after the NFL’s free-agency shopping period opened

Harris caught just seven passes for 116 yards (with four carries for seven yards). But offense wasn’t his Cowboys forte as much as special-teams play was. He dipped a bit in 2014, averaging 24.7 yards per kick return and 9.2 yards per punt return. But the year before he averaged 30.6 yards per kick return and 12.8 yards per punt return, in addition to perennially being Dallas’ best kick-coverage guy. He also led the Cowboys with 18 special teams tackles.
