With free agency coming up in just over a week, the Raiders must begin getting their restricted and exclusive rights free agents in order. That means placing tenders on those players they want to keep.

One of those ERFA’s is Erik Harris. He will be tendered by the Raiders according to a source.

An ERFA is a player whose contract has expired and has three or fewer tenured years in the league.

Harris led the team with 5 combined special teams tackles (4 solo) and was the team’s special teams player on the Pro Bowl ballot.

He joined the Raiders just prior to last season after spending the 2016 season with the New Orleans Saints, seeing action in four games. He was waived with the final roster cuts prior to last season.

Prior to signing with New Orleans, Harris played three seasons in the CFL for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, totaling 79 tackles, three interceptions, three sacks and four fumble recoveries in 42 games.
