RB DuJuan Harris returning to 49ers on one-year deal

Mar 27, 2017 at 3:23 PM--


Free agent running back DuJuan Harris will be returning to the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year deal, reports the Sacramento Bee and his agent.



Last season, Harris carried the ball just 38 times for 138 yards with the 49ers but also added 115 yards and a touchdown on eight receptions. He was on and off the roster all season, finally being promoted to the active roster on October 22. Harris did not make the team's final roster in September and was released and signed to the team's practice squad twice after that.

Initially, Harris was a late-season addition by the 49ers in 2015 – being signed from the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. He rushed for 140 yards on 27 carries in the final two games of that season.



Harris, who entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2011 with the Jacksonville Jaguars, has also spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, and Ravens.

The 49ers had free agent running back Tim Hightower in for a visit on March 16, but so far, nothing has come from that.

In 2016, the 49ers offense ranked fourth in the NFL in rushing yards, averaging over 126 yards per game.

Today, DeMeco Ryans spoke with the media for the first time since being named the San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator in January. One of the discussion topics was second-year defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, who was the No. 14 overall pick last year. Ryans is expecting big things from his 6-foot-5 and nearly 320-pound defensive lineman. "Kinlaw, he's looking awesome," the coach told reporters. "I think it's really vital for him to really have these OTAs, and it's been great that all our guys have showed up, and we've been able to practice. "Kinlaw is able to really hone in and focus on his techniques, which he missed coming in as a rookie. OTAs are very, very important. For him to miss that time last year, I think he's going to take a huge jump
