2005 Undrafted Players

An updated version of this blog post is available at

Kay Jay Harris: Harris, a running back, was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2005 and spent his first season on the practice squad.

Nick Saban, the Miami head coach, had high expectations for Harris's second season, saying, "We were really pleased with him last year in preseason. We were pleased with him all year on the practice squad. We really never had an opportunity to move him up...We're kind of anxious to see how he responds through camp and through this exhibition season." He was never given the chance to prove himself in Miami, Harris spent the first month of the season on the practice squad before he was waived.

Two months into the season, Harris was picked up by the Rams. Harris found some playing time in his partial season with St. Louis. His stats show nothing impressive: 3 rushes for 9 yards; 4 kick returns for 76 yards; and 1 reception for ten yards. Harris was released before the beginning of the 2007 season.

During the 2007 season, Harris was considered by the Panthers but was ultimately signed by the Giants practice squad just before their Super Bowl win. He practiced with the Giants during the offseason and was optimistic about his odds. However, before the begining of the 2008 season, he was released and not resigned by another team.
