Undrafted rookie Dominique Harris was brought back to Buffalo's roster almost quicker than he left it. After making the initial 53-man roster Saturday, the strong safety was waived the next day to make room on the roster at the tight end position for veteran David Martin. A day later after Harris cleared waivers he was signed to the Bills practice squad.
Despite no longer being on the active roster, Harris is determined to make a difference.
"I can bring 100 percent effort and 100 percent commitment," he said.
For Harris reps were hard to come by at the strong safety position behind Donte Whitner and Bryan Scott during training camp and the preseason, though he did have a sack against Indianapolis.
After a highly decorated college career at Temple, Harris thought he had seen it all in football, but his first NFL training camp taught him different.
"Yeah, it was hard," he said. "I never experienced anything like that. I thought coming out of Temple, I experienced everything but I haven't."
Harris brings good size to the position and could develop into a player capable of making distinct contributions on the active roster.
Buffalo now has seven players on the practice squad leaving just one opening on the eight-man unit.
