With the release of Terrell Sinkfield from the Vikings yesterday I thought I would just give everybody a quick update on our other ex-Cat trying out in the NFL with the Saints- Erik Harris.
Erik Harris survived the 1rst round of cuts to 75 with the Saints and it’s looking good for him to make the final 53 man roster when the season opens up in a weeks time. It seems that the team is pleased with his play and excited about his work ethnic. In 3 preseason games so far Harris has 9 tackles total(5 solo, 4 assists)and has been impressive with his solid play to date. I would say that it looks good that the Saints will be 2 for 2 in successive years in signing ex-Cats to their roster. So far so good Erik , keep up the good work and do us proud much like the Breaux Show has already done in showing the talent that has come through the Hammer in the last few years. :rockin:
Here’s a nice interview with Harris from the Saints home web page :[url=http://www.neworleanssaints.com/media-center/videos/Erik-Harris-I-like-picking-older-guys-brains/3a12afba-4225-423c-af33-2dc846257fdb]http://www.neworleanssaints.com/media-c ... c846257fdb[/url]
and here’s another article about how Erik has been turning heads with his impressive play and how his friendship with Breaux helped him land the tryout with the Saints :[url=http://bigeasybeliever.com/2016/07/29/saints-safety-erik-harris-makes-an-early-impression/]http://bigeasybeliever.com/2016/07/29/s ... mpression/[/url]
